On the site for this year's Amazing Meeting, there's a little joke about how organizing skeptics is like herding cats
It's a common belief that (possibly) due to their strong will and independent nature, cats cannot be herded as say, sheep can.
In fact, the phrase "like herding cats" is commonly used to describe an incredibly difficult, labor-intensive and ultimately futile task. Of course this got me to thinking, has anyone ever actually tested this?
Is there any scientific evidence indicating whether or not cats can be herded?
