Cats are well-known for their unique traits. Apart from being the cutest creatures in the Multiverse, they often surprise us with their behavior. Our feline friends are highly intelligent, and they have the superpower of adding a big smile to our faces through cute and unique gestures even during our hardest moments.
One of the initiatives for why Elon Musk is well-known to the world is represented by the Starlink internet satellites. The billionaire’s goal is to provide internet connectivity across remote regions of the planet. But it seems that except for humans, cats are always delighted by the idea.
Here’s the proof:

But why are cats attracted by the internet dishes? The explanation is actually quite simple, as a Reddit user explained the following, as quoted by Futurism.com:
I was checking my dish with a thermal sight and it actually looks like the whole dish, even the back side is warm,
So you might [see] animals under or around it in general if it’s ground mounted.
Everybody must have noticed that cats like warm objects. Anybody who has a kitten at home has seen how the cute furry animal likes to remain warm near the owner’s clothes or in his bed. But why exactly does this happen?
Pamela Merritt, who’s a cat expert, explained as quoted by TreeHugger.com:
While their fur is insulating, this can work against them when they use our heat devices. They can cuddle up to something warm, not realize it is getting warmer, and their fur will keep them from noticing until it is quite hot.
Although it seems impossible in Europe and the USA, there are still a lot of parts of the world that need internet connectivity. Therefore, Elon Musk does a great job when it comes to sending Starlink satellites into the Earth’s orbit.
