NorthStar Pet: Cat Logic


This if from the Simon's Cat blog:

I take the food out of my bowl before eating...
 
Although at first sight this seems a bit pointless, when you learn that it is in a cat’s instinct to protect their food and move it away from other predators (cat siblings, say) to stop them from eating their share, it doesn’t seem quite so bizarre.

I am totally ignoring that comfy cat bed for this hard patch of floor...

 
As daft as it may seem, some cats will choose a patch of floor for a nap over a cushioned bed as it’s generally cooler and can help them maintain their optimum body temperature. It’s either that, or they’re just playing you for a fool for spending a fortune on a fancy cat bed. (See our Clever Cat Beds blog post to save yourself some pennies!)

I can spot a bird from 500 yards, but I can’t see that treat you just dropped in front of me, no matter how many times you point to it...

 
We’ve all been here haven’t we? But when you learn that in order for a cat to see prey at long distances, and in dim and changing light, it sacrifices the ability to focus on detail close up, you can forgive them for what seems like a moment of stupidity.
