Are Cats Liquid? A New Perspective

We've presented the theory that cats are liquid more than once here at Neatorama. A study about it even won an Ig Nobel Prize in 2017. But those demonstrations mostly showed how cats take the shape of their container, which is an essential property of a liquid.

A Japanese retailer has a Twitter account, Felissimo Nekobu, that operates as a "cat club." A recent Tweet presented the theory that cats are liquid and asked followers to contribute evidence. Looking through the huge number of data points in the replies, it appears that Japanese cat lovers approach the theory from a different position. Instead of taking the shape of the container, these cats are liquid because of the way they flow.

Yes, there are a few containers, but you'll enjoy seeing hundreds of cats in the act of flowing in the Twitter thread. Felissimo Nekobu supports cat rescue organizations in Japan.  -via Metafilter

Animals with a strong core (think pigs, cows, etc.) aren't very agile and can't "flow" too well. They tend to stand their ground and fight. Animals like Tigers and Monkeys are built to be more agile around trees and vegetation (and fit in tight spaces).
