Spoiler for A bit more..
Could very well be.
The above curve probably debunks the catenary hypothesis.
Care to cast the golden spiral inside the unit square? I'll add to the plot.

Spoiler for A bit more..I'm out of my depth here, but you guys introducing the Golden Ratio to things made me do a bit more digging (for my own peace of mind) and I came up with this..... http://en.wikipedia....i/Golden_spiral You've probably encountered it before, but it's new to me. And the more I think about it, the more this seems likely to be the cat's path. So I'm changing my vote from 'catenary' to 'Golden Spiral' !
Does that tie in with your thinking?
