Cats are thus liquid if we give them the time to become liquid. In rheology, the state of a material is not really a fixed property—what must be measured is the relaxation time. What is its value and on what does it depend? For example, does the relaxation time of a cat vary with its age? In rheology we speak of thixotropy. Could the type of container be a factor? Of course, we mean stress in the mechanical sense rather than emotional, but the two meanings may overlap in some cases.
What cats show clearly is that determining the state of a material requires comparing two time periods: the relaxation time and the experimental time, which is the time elapsed since the onset of deformation initiated by the container. For instance, it may be the time elapsed since the cat stepped into a sink.
Conventionally, one divides the relaxation time by the experimental time, and if the result is more than one, the material is relatively solid; if the result is lower than one, the material is relatively liquid. On shorter time scales one can see glaciers progressively flowing down valleys. Even if the relaxation time is very large days, years , the behavior can be that of a liquid if the Deborah number is small compared to one.

This is about cats and how awesome and strange they are. I was greatly amused by a review that said that the reviewer wished this book had more substance.
My cat is currently sitting on the couch, licking his tummy. His gut is very substantial. View 1 comment. Sep 02, Rizal rated it really liked it. People with cats would appreciate this. Simple, not much texts, and adorable. Apr 21, Charlie rated it it was amazing Shelves: graphic-novels-comics.
I'm not sure how to rate comics like this but it was hilarious so I'm giving it 5 stars. This pretty much exemplifies why my partner wants a cat and why I don't want one. This was a really fun read. Feb 26, Joy rated it really liked it Shelves: american , 21c , pets , comics.
Why yes, I am a crazy cat lady who loves comics. How could I not like this book? It helps, of course, that the observations are spot on. It's not a bad life. View all 3 comments. Jan 26, Rachel rated it it was amazing.
This book has made me desire a new feline in my life. Perhaps that is the point, to affirm a love of cats. May 31, Cale rated it it was ok. There's a key word in the title of this book - observations. This is not a collection of humorous comic strips although some are lightly amusing. Instead it's a short-hand observer's notebook of cat incidents. As a cat owner, a lot of them are very relatable; my cats do a lot of what he's documented.enter

But my problem with this book is that it just observes; there's no commentary. Cats are weird? Why should I care? There's nothing here that justifies the collection. No humor, no deep though There's a key word in the title of this book - observations.
Cats are Weird and More Observations
No humor, no deep thoughts, no exploration of how cat weirdness affects us, or should. There's some well done drawings of cats, some less well-done strips that feature cats doing cat things, and no There are lots of cat comics out there, and I would recommend you look into those. This is But you can do better. Apr 22, Andrew rated it really liked it.
This is in the same style as "cat getting out of a bag", a mix of cat observation with humorous cartoon style illustrations. If you have ever owned or lived some time with a cat after all who owns who you very quickly start to recognise their antics in this book. I think the most entertaining ones are those where you think "yes my cat does that, yes just LIKE that" and that is where i think the appeal of this book really lies.
Great read and one I think I could go back to time and time again This is in the same style as "cat getting out of a bag", a mix of cat observation with humorous cartoon style illustrations. Great read and one I think I could go back to time and time again rather like the Simons Cat series and still raise a smile even though I recognise each page instantly.
Oct 09, D'Anne rated it really liked it Shelves: graphic-art-comics. This book is adorable. If you like cats you will like this book. If you like cats but don't like this book you are dumb. If you don't like cats, well, that doesn't make you dumb. But you might still like this book. Mar 24, Xanthi rated it liked it. A gently amusing book for those of us who have lived with cats. My favourite was 'The Look'.
We've all been on the receiving end of that one! Cartoonist Jeffrey Brown's drawings perfectly capture the humor and quirkiness of cats in all their strange and charming glory. Following the success of Cat Getting Out of a Bag, this collection of color and black-and-white comic strips loosely follows the adventures of a pair of cats as they explore the world around them, indoors and out.
Adventures include taking a nap, licking a shoe, attacking dust particles, hiding in cabinets, pouncing on fallen leaves, confronting the vacuum cleaner, patrolling the yard, and purring up a stormall adorably rendered in Brown's immediate and irresistible style. Sure to delight anyone who lives with cats and appreciates their sweet and batty behavior, this beautifully packaged gift book is the cat's meow.
