The theory/guess needs additional testing due to the small sample size of 132 events. This can easily be done using a cat-a-pult.

I once owned a cat (yes, I owned it) that had a habit of exiting through the window of the second floor apartment, usually at night, onto the lawn outside. It was smart enough not to wander off and I would find it waiting on the doorstep in the morning. But it wasn't smart enough not to go out the window in rainy weather.

Now strap some buttered toast to it, and try the experiment again.
