Do your cats watch TV?

One of my cats will spend hours watching bird and squirrel videos. The rest of my cats just donít care and donít even seem to notice when a bird is on TV.

1. Mine was very interested in a documentary about cats.

Otherwise she doesn't pay any attention to it.

2. One cat loves the bird and squirrel videos

The older ones used to but not as much now. However, they all love hockey!

3. Little Lilly jumps right into basketball games.

She blocks shots, steals passes and swipes dibbles away. A riot to watch her.

4. One of my females will watch animal videos on my phone with me.

The others don't care at all about tv or any other media.

5. Mine prefer music

They esp. like Carlos Santana and classical music.

They also seem to like my crummy guitar playing as well.

6. No interest in the TV unless it starts playing music.

Both cats hate any kind of music and will slink out of the room as if the noise hurts their ears if it persists very long.

9. Was playing an old rock 'n roll song with a lot of screeching the other day

One of my cats was running his claws across the walls in sync.

Wow was that ever weird!

7. There was an old Social Security commercial that featured a red ball going around a track that

my late, beloved cat, Nigel, was mesmerized by. He would come running every time he heard that commercial come on. These days, my Rosie watches TV occasionally. It can be anything with interesting movement. She'll watch it for half an hour or so then she moves on.

13. We have a small TV in our home office that sits on a table with enough room for the cat to sit there

She loves to watch and tries to "catch," and sometimes bite, moving objects. She especially likes people who wave their hands when talking! I've seen her try to bite Mitch McConnell's head off! LOL Great fun!

14. I've always had cats and sometimes dogs.

We never had an animal that would watch TV until the cat we have now. Even as a kitten, she would watch and now watches all the time. She's especially interested in shows with animals but will watch anything with movement. This Old House gets her attention. A lot of the time she'll jump up and try to get close or hang around the back of the set to see where everything went.

17. Nope, nope and nope.

I'll even hold my laptop screen in front of her face to watch cat or bird videos. She turns her face away. Has no interest.
