Seriously, something must be wrong with people. I don't know how to explain otherwise these pictures appeared over at OS X Daily of some people using their cats as iPad stands. Read again, cats as iPad stands. And quite useful stands, they say.
[UPDATE]: Turns out the cat actually happened to be at the right place at the right time. The idea could be explored, anyway.
I'm still looking for a good iPad stand, anyway. Sure I won't use this method.
