Are cats liquid or solid? I want your vote.

Inspired by the Ig Nobel 2017 prize in physics won by Marc-Antoine Fardin for his research into whether or not cats behave like a liquid or solid. It turns out that cats can either be liquid or solid depending on the situation. If put in a small container, a cat will behave like a liquid an quickly fill up all the space, but in a large container like a bathtub filled with water, a cat behaves like a solid. If you are a cat owner, you likely have already witnessed this strange phenomena before. What's your vote? Liquid or solid?

According to Wikipedia, “liquid takes the shape of a container” and maintains “almost-fixed volume.” So there you have it. Cats are liquids!
