Science Caturday: Space Cat comes down to Earth

Everyone’s favorite real-life spaceman, Commander Chris Hadfield, recently returned to earth after 5 months aboard the International Space Station. Interestingly, the press paid little attention to the fact that an alien kitty stowed away on the ISS and grew so attached to Hadfield that he accompanied him back to Canada. As these recent photos show, the cat (unimaginatively dubbed Space Cat) is experiencing a few difficulties adjusting to life on Earth.


He may have trouble eating one with that space helmet on. Dealing with grabbity is also a challenge.


In fact, he shows signs of already wanting to go back into space.


Give Earth a chance, Space Cat! You just might like it here. We have a thing called the internet, and cats rule it.
