Kitty watches too much TV

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Ok, I've noticed that besides shredding toilet paper, Pandora loves to watch the television or the computer screen. She obviously likes watching things move. I've heard of videos for cats and dogs. Anyone know where to find them? Any recommendations folks? Pandora thanks you.

My cat likes to chase the mouse icon around when I am using the computer He also likes the TV. I don't know about the videos either, I would love to know too!

Try any store that sells pet stuff, or ask your vet (about the videos).

For some strange reason, both my cats never watch TV unless I put my Tori Amos videos on. Those, they like, they just sit in front and stare.lol

Shredding toilet paper, watching too much TV... Sounds like your Pandora is a wild child and will soon be in need of Brat Camp.

Here is a website where you can buy mewvies. : ) I guess they really stimulate cats and cats really like them!

I bought CJ the cat sitter dvd and it is really neat. It has good clear pictures and he will sit there and chatter at the tv and try to find the animals. It has birds, gerbils, hamsters, butterflys, chipmunks, etc. It also has a loop function so that it can play forever until you turn it off. The only thing is that I played it pretty often and he got bored with it. But that was 4 months ago, so maybe it is time I pulled it back out. I think it was close to $10. I warn you though, be sure to have your video camera on hand because it is some funny stuff when they realize what is on the telly.

Snickers likes to watch "Homeward Bound". No kidding. Or Animal Planet (on cable TV.)...

If we put Homeward Bound in, kid ya not, he'll perch himself in front of that TV and just STARE at the tube! I think Snicky has a crush on Sassy!!!

Oh my girls love that video, too! You're right- it's a hoot to watch them watching it! Cosette and Eponine also LOVE it when Bradley watches the Outdoor Channel every night. If he's watching a show about turkey hunting and they use those turkey calls, the girls go nuts! They try to figure out how a birdie got stuck in the TV!
Now that we have our aquarium, Cosette thinks it's even better than TV!

Smidge watches Two Brothers.
It has a tiger documentary that comes with the DVD (about 40min long). That is her current fave.

The loop one sounds really good. I will look into that.

Yup, sounds like Pandora!! I just love her though. She certainly keeps me entertained!

My aunt bought the cat sitter DVD on half.com for her kitty, Maple, and she LOVES it!! Maple is a deaf white kitty (my aunt is also deaf) so she can't hear the chirping and squeaking, but she'll run behind the tv trying to find where all the things on the screen run to! Oliver is a HUGE tv hog! I'll always put animal planet on for him when I go out and my boyfriend bought him a copy of Oliver Twist (because of the name obviously - He's getting Oliver and Company for Christmas, but don't tell him!)... I had animal planet on the other day and Oliver was chasing an elephant shrew across the screen! He also loves watching football and hockey when I have them on... he's also been known to plop himself in front of my moniter and try to eat the mouse cursor on the screen! He's also facsinated by the movements in my freshwater fish tank and my hermit crab tank (they're his little brothers and sisters, hehe)... glad to hear that Ollie's not the only boob tube addict!

My Callie loves sports... she watches any group sport where there's a ball going back and forth on the screen (best ones are basketball, soccer and hockey). Tigger was never interested much in the tv, but Callie cracks us up... she puts two paws up on the screen and her head goes back and forth as she watches. It's so funny!

sunnicat-
Yes, they do have good taste,(like their mommy, lol) I guess they are so used to hear Tori's voice on the radio that they pay attention when it comes from the Tv.:P
