Dogs tend to align themselves either north
or south along the earth's magnetic field when defecating. I'm still
trying to find out if this is true of cats. My hypothesis is that it's
not. But I appeal to all of you who have dogs to take a compass with
you when walking your canine companion and to record your observations.
Cat owners who are able to observe the moment of poopage in the litter
box, please do the same. Let's make this a 30-day project. If you will
report your findings to me, you will have advanced the cause of
science, which these days needs all the help it can get.
