    Meet Feline Pythagoras: Maru, the Mathematical Cat From St. Petersburg

    Get short URL

    Maru is not an average stray cat. He knows how to answer questions about simple arithmetic by ringing a bell.

    The owners of the clever cat discovered his rare mathematical talent by accident. Just for fun, somebody decided to ask the kitty, who loved to ring the bell, how much one plus one is, and Maru pressed twice. Since then, with the help of his tamers, Maru has learned how many times to pull the bell and achieved some positive results.

      A little black bat was spotted eating a piece of succulent watermelon and seemed to be unable to stop devouring the delicious fruit. Even though it is not surprising that the creature was gobbling up the melon, as bats are generally not too picky and eat various sorts of food, this certainly is a cute scene to observe.
