Do Cats Watch Television?
I was watching Nova the other day with my cats on either side of me. It was a show about Victoria Falls, quite spectacular on the big screen. As the film spotlighted the local wildlife, the elephants frolicking in the spring abundance of water, the hippos with their periscope eyes and ears topping the water, the sounds and flights of birds coming in for a feast, the cat sat alert, scanning the screen with his eyes, his head turning to follow the creatures on the screen and the sounds they were making. When the commercial came on, he laid his head on his paws and went to sleep.
