For Cats to Watch when you're not home

Is your cat stuck at home all day? Is your house suffering the effects of a bored cat?

Give your feline companion something to do while you're out all day. Your cat needs a DVD to watch!

I personally recommend a cat-specific DVD, I have one of my own and I can watch it over and over (I love the bird calls) although I've long since given up trying to claw the bits I want out of the television screen. .

If you're anything like the woman who feeds me, then you enjoy watching a good DVD now and then but did you ever stop to think your cat might enjoy a little television too?

My favourite is the golden oldie, Video Catnip

Why Cats like DVDs

I'm a Watcher!

Like all cats, I'm motion-sensitive and constantly on alert for signs of prey.

I like to run after a piece of string you're pulling too, or chase a ping pong ball, that's acting out my ambush fantasies, but watching is what I do best.

I study the movements of my prey and plan ahead to where the prey is going to be, then I work out how to respond to any defensive maneuvers. I can watch for hours!

That's also why I love to stare out the window. I'm a Watcher!

      I knew someone who turned the SyFy channel of for her bird all day. He particularly likes shows with lots of blood and gore. Maybe he thought he was a raptor. She said once her TV was broken and the bird got very depressed.

      I'd imagined you as more of the documentary type - wars and conquests,
