In this week’s installment of Curious Cat, Elijah and Ethan brainstormed a handful of possible questions but ultimately took inspiration from Ethan’s recent Cat in the Stax post and asked: “Are there more wheels or doors in the world?” These curious Cats received a total of five responses. Here’s what those Falvey patrons had to say about this viral question…
