Cats can be fairly easy to control. Just make them into quadcopters.....

At least i'm still in the visible range with 3. I have one cat that hates everyone, one cat thats afraid of everyone, and one cat that loves everything. The one that loves everything is the most problematic. She likes to walk across my workbench and knock every little piece off of it, one at a time. And theres a lot of stuff on my workbench. They have become less troublesome now that they have discovered that the 12" fan on the top of my PC vents heat upward.

Cats don't need the propeller. Some New York vets realised that cat fatalities rose with the height the cat had fallen from, but then levelled off at less than 100% dead around 5-6 floors not increasing no matter how high the cats fell from.

Apparently cats can survive hitting the ground at their terminal velocity. Falling from above 5 floors gives them time to adopt a good skydiving position and relax!

A perpetual motion machine can be made by strapping a piece of buttered toast to the back of a cat (butter side up). Drop the whole works and it will stop a foot or so off the floor and hover, spinning, because it cannot decide which side to land on.
