Can you use a cat in place of spokes?

they string racquets with them, don't see why you could not lace a wheel with one.

wrong, the cat could not lace itself into the wheel. A human has to do that. Just like the human has to load the cat into the apult.

The really important question is why it's a cat-apult anyway. Why not a dogapult?

dogs don't really have claws....think about a cat flying through the air...those claws could do some damage.

I had an instructor that use to fly his Cessna with his cat in the back window. The cat loved it. She would immediately crawl up on the back shelf and fall asleep. Until he hit a bump and pulled negative g's. Cat's do not like to float. Claws, hair, pain all abounded in the cockpit that afternoon...
