You are right, observing the cat collapses the quantum probability to a single state.

a high res image would be so cool. this is definitely one of the best LOLcats I’ve ever seen and I’ve seen a lot!

FYI: The original image is about 2 megapixels, about 1400 pixels square.

I’m glad everyone is enjoying this. I’ve enjoyed the various captions I’ve read. I certainly was aware of the Shrödinger’s cat reading of the image when I first finished and posted the uncaptioned picture a year ago.

The cat is Xena. She will be 10 years old this summer.

Hi Joey!
