Friday moggie: Simon’s Cat gets scientific

An old favorite, Simon’s Cat (website here), has added some Science to the cartoons, combining the usual amusing animations (in this case, one called “Let me in”) with an expert’s explanation of cat behavior (the expert here is Nicky Trevorrow). Apparently “Simon’s Cat Logic” will be a continuing series.

Note that throughout this video, Simon Tofield, who appears in person, makes the cat noises himself. The regular animation, with an introduction by Tofield, starts at 3:00.

The explanation:

Simon’s Cat Logic is a fun new series where we speak to a Cat Behaviour Expert at Cats Protection about why cats do the silly things they do, and how we can help our cats lead happy and healthy lives.

    Out last two cats lived to be in their 20s (Jerry, do you remember the photo of Bill the Cat sitting on the window ledge 5 stories up in Barcelona? Fearless, but he liked to give us heart attacks). Our current cat is fourteen – he was a rescue from the streets, only four weeks old, riddled with fleas and disease, now he’s lording it over the d*g and demanding to go in and out eleventy-million time a day. There is a reason cats thrive with humans, they totally have our number 🙂

    My Crazy Orange Kitty has a time during the day when he wants to be both in and out at the same time. I’ve threatened to rename him “Heisenberg.” Or maybe “Quantum.”

    With only my husband and myself in the house, we tend to be pretty lax about closing the bathroom doors. When we have visitors, of course, that changes, and it really upsets the cats sometimes. They’re convinced that the humans must be doing something wonderfully interesting in there, and won’t share in the fun!
