This is a video demonstration of the one-way (it only goes down) cat elevator that a woman made for her cat to ride from one of the high rafters in her home back down to the ground. How cool is that? The elevator’s counterweight appears to be a precisely weighed bag of sand, ahem, UNLIKE THE ONE INDIANA JONES USED TO REPLACE THE GOLDEN IDOL IN RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK. If Indy had measured this counterweight the elevator would just free fall.
Thanks to Christina D, who agrees that cat is living the dream and I’m really trying my hardest not to be jealous.
