I am further informed that this Butter/Cat system would also be a perpetu=
al motion machine

Sorry, but antigravity has already been discovered. The problem with it
is that they can't figure out how to remove the annoyed cat and messy
butter from the equation. The principle is based on two facts: 1) a cat
always land on its feet and 2) buttered toast always lands buttered side
down. So, if you strap buttered toast to the back of a cat in just the
right way, the two oppose each other and the cat/toast system will then
hover some distance above the ground. That distance is proportional to
the amount of butter and the number of cat feet.

Sorry to disappoint you!
