What Cats Do When You’re Not Home

Don’t you want to know?  Friskies enlisted 50 cats from mixed households (apts, houses, with & without other animals in the house) to find out.  Cat-cams were attached to their collars; every 15 minutes a still photo was snapped automatically from the cat’s eye view.  The results are interesting.  Before I give you the results, consider what you think your cat does during all that quiet time?

Most people guess ‘sleeping’.  Cats in the study spent as much time looking at computers, books, tv, dvds & even art (or any media) as they did hiding under the table, and sleeping.  It’s suggested that cats love the contrast in intensity of colors, and are best able to see greenish yellows & blues; and of course they seem to love the stimulation of the movement on a computer or tv screen.

Most of the time of course, they are looking out the window (still photos show cats looking from behind plants).

You can check out the photos from their focus group on their flickr page.
