Science is all about asking questions and searching for an answer. That’s why a sixth-grader named Kaeden Griffin decided to create a science fair project called: “Does Your Cat’s Butthole Really Touch All the Surfaces in Your Home?”

Surprisingly, he found that long and medium-haired cats have buttholes that rarely touch any surface at all. However, short-haired cats’ buttholes touched soft surfaces but not hard surfaces. So if you want to keep your house clean, make sure your cat doesn’t sit on your food, medicine, or anything else you might ingest or touch and you should be safe.
