Newton's Cat Flap

He may have gone down in history as the discoverer of gravity and for being one of the greatest scientific minds of his age, but Sir Isaac Newton may have invented something far more important to our moggies. The cat flap.

Newton is reputed to have invented the cat flap in the seventeenth century, so that he would not have to disrupt his optical experiments, conducted in a darkened room, to let his cat and her kittens in or out. Ahhhh!
