As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artworkhere, being shared by the page, “Anarchy Girl,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…
“A dog is able to learn up to 250 words and gestures. A dog can count up to five and can perform simple math. Equivalent human age: 3. A cat doesn’t give a fuck and is sick of your shit. Equivalent human age: 42”
Brooke N.: Cats are sensitive to vibrations. Their whiskers and eyebrows are sensory organs for that. He keeps looking like he thinks something went past him.
Rayn: Indeed. Even the vibration of bass from a powerful speaker might confuse a feline into some of the behaviors we see in this video. But, I can’t help but to keep watching that part around 1:10, where the kitten was standing in front the speaker, facing it, while looking back at the surface of the table, near its edge. Then, he suddenly spun around, ran over, and attacked the spot he was just looking at. Once he imagined he that he “caught” whatever was there, he proceeded to sniff it multiple times, then even tracked it a bit more, before moving on to chasing more invisible things. Very strange! I wish the video was a high-res one, so I could really study it good!
