Cat Caught in Vortex of Cuteness
The National Guard has been called in to deal with a situation developing in Chandler, AZ, where a cat is caught in what scientists are calling a “cuteness vortex.”
"The vortex is a mass of cute air that descended from the Canadian Rockies," explained Wei-Lin Mah, a professor of cuteology at the University of Colorado. "We’ve seen a few kittens and at least one puppy get sucked into the vortex, but in most cases, it dissipates quickly.”
In the case of the Arizona cat, explained Mah, the vortex combined forces with a mass of hot air from the west and was stuck firm.
