The electric cat: Rotation without net overall spin
2.As we will see, both methods essentially consider the cat as a coupled system, consisting of a front half and a rear half. Perhaps the cat problem is so interesting because the intuition that one has about rotational dynamics for rigid bodies is poorly informed when studying coupled systems, causing it to seem that the cat is violating a fundamental law, the conservation of angular momentum. (Paraphrase from an anonymous referee).
