Have you wondered if domestic cats understand the difference between a moving picture on a screen and real life action? It is a bit like the conundrum as to whether cats know when they are looking in a mirror that they are looking at themselves (they don’t get it!). Well this video proves that this cat (and he probably represents all domestic cats) does not understand that he is looking at television images and not ‘real’ current events. It is a good example of this.

It makes me wonder why cats don’t understand that TV presents artificial images rather than real life. One factor will be that cats don’t understand the concept of human technology. We know that technology is behind the creation of the television. It turns on intelligence but we shouldn’t say that cats are less intelligence than humans. I don’t think it is sensible to compare intelligence between different species of animal. It is comparing apples to oranges. Just my viewpoint.
