Cat Unimpressed by Mars Rover Landing
By Scott Friedstein, FluffPo Correspondent
When the NASA rover Curiosity touched down on the surface of Mars early Monday morning, it was hailed as an unprecedented feat of science and human achievement. The world was captivated as the spacecraft made its final descent, reaching the red planet after a 352 million mile journey. It seemed everyone was in a state of awe.
Everyone, that is, except Ivy. According to sources, the Romanian cat was simply unmoved.
“She didn’t see what the big deal was at all,” says Bogdan Dumitrescu, a friend. “I was like, ‘That thing just landed on Mars! Isn’t this exciting?’ She wasn’t having any of it.”
After halfheartedly gazing at the computer screen, Ivy is reported to have licked her paw and yawned before promptly going to sleep.
“I thought she’d be really interested,” says Dumitrescu. “I guess that’s what I get for waking her up, though.”
