Would the average long haired cat have a lower terminal velocity than the average short haired cat?

Well while there is no specific mention of cat fur here I would surmise that wind resistance is a contributing factor in any calculation of this nature. Meow  ]:D

for specifically controlling a cat that it turns to a specific side you can put virbration motors that are used in mobile phones , are very small and take very less power and you can mount one such motor on every side of the sensitive cat skin and can make the cat learn to turn to that way based on which sides vibration motor vibrated

Waiting to see a cat in a little kitty wingsuit since there already looks to be a cat (fake or rug?) built into a quadcopter.

This is sick so if you're a cat lover, don't look:

Lancaster the taxidermist should also become a vet. That way no matter what happens, you get your pet back.

How to Give A Cat a Pill

   Pick cat up and cradle it in the crook of your left arm as if holding a baby. Position right forefinger and thumb on either side of cat's mouth and gently apply pressure to cheeks while holding pill in right hand. As cat opens mouth pop pill into mouth. Allow cat to close mouth and swallow.
   Retrieve pill from floor and cat from behind sofa. Cradle cat in left arm and repeat process.
   Retrieve cat from bedroom, and throw soggy pill away.
   Take new pill from foil wrap, cradle cat in left arm, holding rear paws tightly with left hand. Force jaws open and push pill to back of mouth with right fore-finger. Hold mouth shut for a count of ten.
  ( many lines removed here )
   Tie the little [bleep]'s front paws to rear paws with garden twine and bind tightly to leg of dining table, find heavy duty pruning gloves from shed. Push pill into mouth followed by large piece of fillet steak. Hold head vertically and pour 2 pints of water down throat to wash pill down.
   Consume remainder of scotch. Get spouse to drive you to the emergency room, sit quietly while doctor stitches fingers and forearm and removes pill remnants from right eye. Call furniture shop on way home to order new table.
   Arrange for RSPA to collect mutant cat from hell and ring local pet shop to see if they have any hamsters.

How to Give A Dog A Pill

   Wrap it in bacon.
   Feed dog.
45 years of editing projects with a knife and soldering iron, then I found Arduino !

He had to use bacon? I just had to act like it was food. Crinkle some plastic first if the dog is the suspicious type. Wrappers mean candy.

Yes, light fluffy cats work best. You can also try dropping eggs onto grass from a couple of floors up, I have done this myself (hens eggs, reasonably fresh). Like the cats most will survive as long as they don't hit anything hard.

I have read that you can drop mice down mineshafts with impunity but that it does not work with horses.
