Buttered Cat Software came from the amusing paradox involving buttered toast and a cat. After thinking up a few adjective-noun type names to try, Buttered Cat was suggested by someone and it seemed like a good name and funny enough to use.
The paradox involves the rule that cats always land on their feet, and buttered toast lands butter side down. If one takes buttered toast and attaches it to a cat, then throwing the cat out a window, which side will it land on?
