Cats in science

Schrödinger's cat, hapless victim and lucky survivor of a thought experiment by Erwin Schrödinger illustrating the incompleteness of the theory of quantum mechanics (although Schrödinger himself is historical, the cat is the protagonist in a thought experiment and thus fictional). Surrounding this thought experiment, John Gribbin authored two books, In Search of Schrödinger's Cat and Schrödinger's Kittens.
