I'm a scientist doing research on cats and their ability to fly.

I heard that cats can use their tails like a helicopter and fly several miles while hunting birds.
Is that true or just an urban legend ?

Apparantly assholes can type so there may be some other thoughts out there that have truth to them.
Tristan,
Don't be an uptight ***...it's just a *** joke. Maybe if you laughed once in awhile you wouldn't look like an ugly tosser.

A Cat
I've seen two cats displaying this behavior..one was chasing a squirrel across a telephone line and the other chasing a dove over a roof. The fur on their tails appeared to flatten out to assume the shape of a wing thus giving it the required lift. The speed at which it rotated was very fast, maybe to account for the single rotor.

Both cats were silent in their flight..except for their twittering.
I cannot do this..I prefer a jetpack.
