Skye Blake here with some exciting and fun info I dug up. It’s Cat TV… making your feline fun even better!
I’ve discovered that not only do people love watching tv and videos about us, they love giving us fun things to watch too!
Cat TV Live
We felines love our live TV. All we have to do is look out the window from our comfy perch and see our favorite critters. Birds at a feeder, squirrels, chipmunks, mice, dogs, even people going by are great fun to watch.
You can set up a nice area for your kitties to enjoy their Cat TV. Put a cat tree or comfy bed by a window or attached to a windowsill.
Have a bird feeder or two outside and a pond they can see with frogs and fish.
Do this in various windows in the house so your kitties can follow the sun during the day and still enjoy their show.
One word of caution with live Cat TV. Sometimes an insecure cat will see or smell other cats outside and feel his territory is threatened. To him another cat sends out an alarm in his mind… “INTRUDER ALERT!”
He might growl, hiss and otherwise get upset. He might also feel the need to spray mark around outside doors or under windows since he can’t get to the intruder directly.
If you need more information on dealing with this situation, start with “Cat Behavior… Is My Cat Nuts?”. Follow the link trails from there.
Another source of hours of fun live Cat TV is an aquarium. If you have one in your house, put it where your kitties can sit and watch in fascination. Just make sure it has a lid they can’t open. Otherwise, Cat TV will turn into “Cat Lunch”!
Cat TV Videos
There are lots of fun videos that people have created for the amusement of their feline friends. Here’s some Cat TV from YouTube for your enjoyment.
There are plenty more available ranging from about 15 minutes to over 8 hours long. Watch out feline friends – you might get hypnotized and forget to pester your people for food!
There are some beautiful videos of fish done by “Cat Trumpet”, including one that’s live watching a coral reef aquarium… “Fish”
Here’s some fun Cat TV by Little Paws & Family. This video has our favorites… “Best Video for Cats EVER! Birds, Chipmunks, Squirrels and Rabbits“, in all seasons of the year.
These are just a few video options available. You can buy or rent videos at Amazon and other online companies. Video games for cats are another fun option you can find online.
I hope my fellow felines have many hours of fun whether they watch live or video Cat TV! People can enjoy them too!
More Cat Culture
Sources used on this website are either primary or secondary. Primary are always preferable and have the most reliable information because primary sources are original and directly referenced. Scientific abstracts and data are good examples of primary sources.
Secondary sources are weaker because they usually consist of opinions or articles that give no sources of their own, however, sometimes they refer to primary sources. Thus, when I use secondary sources most are those with some authority, such as veterinarian or cat behaviorist books and articles.
