Cats’ sixth sense: camera detection.
I bought my cats a 6-pack of those real-fur mousies. This is not a great vegan purchase, but they love them. This is why I have to buy more of them, because they disappear. Every once in awhile, we’ll find a cache of them hidden somewhere, like a closet or under the sofa, but when I LOOK in those places I never find them.
Taco will go apeshit over them. He spent an hour stalking, throwing and batting them.
“Go get the video camera,” I said to myself. “This would make a lovely video blog post.”
Except when the video camera goes on, all action stops. As far as I can tell, there is no way for the cats to actually know they are being recorded. There’s no flashing red light. No whirring of a shutter. It’s effing digital.
But they know! From all the video I have captured of my cats, one would think they are lazy slobs who move only to go sit in another area. I tried for 10 minutes and gave up.
Taco went from “whoa dude, I’m totally stoned” to “methed out mouse fiend” the SECOND I put it down.
They’re such a-holes.
You need a real hidden camera, and a fake one to turn off so they think they are safe and play!
I see you are also taking part in the June “What’s The Word” Challenge on Tabi Happy. I also have a blog for our pet cat, written as if by her, so am interested to see how you incorporate the words into your posts.
I’m making an attempt! BTW, Kizzie is adorable! English kitties seem so much more proper.
I discovered early on that Zoey the Cool Cat likes the red rings from the gallon milk jugs. Every morning, promptly at 4:30, she wakes me up to play fetch with her red rings, of which she currently has 157.
