An Open Question

Some friends of mine had an outdoor cat who was accustomed to entering the house through a screen door. One day when they had people over, the cat walked up to the doorway, then stood up on his hind legs as though to lean on the screen. The screen door was open, however, so he fell forward. Hilarity ensued.

My question: Did the cat make a mistake?

    No. He meant to do that.

    You’re asking if the animal has intentionality, aren’t you?

    I knew it would happen. Adam is starting a sideline in analytic.
