This video is entitled “Fearless fish makes cat crazy”. Do you think that is what is going on? I don’t.
I can guess what is going on for the cat. This sweet looking cat which looks like a Persian kitten, is playing – play hunting would be the more accurate description. We have all seen cats playing on tablet computers with computer games of fish and mice. This is no different. So the cat is not driven crazy by the fish. She is just instinctively driven to play with prey.
The difficulty is trying to understand what is in the mind of the fish! We don’t know enough about what goes on in the minds of fish. My research on the internet proved fruitless. I am not surprised.
To me the fish seems interested in the cat. The fish does not appear to be frightened as it moves forward towards the cat. Either the fish is interested and perhaps bored or it sees the cat as a predator and wants to see it off.
