Gratuitous Cat blogging - Muon the IoA cat

Muon CatMuon

the Institute of Astronomy (Cambridge, UK) cat.

Rumour has it that she is the most heavily acknowledged sentient entity in PhD theses in astronomy and physics (I'd say all of physical sciences, but some of these people run, like, really huge labs; and if you're like that, you make sure everyone acknowledges you - Muon does it by pure charisma)

I thanked Muon in my thesis -- how can I not acknowledge her contribution over the 5 long years? Bless her sainted wiskers, may she roam the corridors of the IoA forever!

Hey George.
Back in the UK?! How's life?

Heard from Gerry back at the AAS that Muon is spry as ever. I miss her. And man did she chew me out last time I visited...
