Schrödinger's Cat

Schrödinger should not have put that cat in the box!

Why?

Everyone knows a cat has nine lives…

Eight and nine lives, when in Schrödinger’s box…

So, whatever happens in that box the cat is alive when you open it!

How does this influence Quantum Mechanics? Is the universe doomed?

Schrödinger definitely should have placed a dog in the box instead!

Unless of course, cats are a vital component in the Standard Model of Physics! Hmmm…

Update: Maybe Schrödinger was a dog person?
