Another Olympic-watching kitten

This morning we saw a cat trying to catch televised snowboarders from the Olympics. Now we have a reader’s cat, Minnie, who does the same thing, except to skiers.  Staff member Alexandra reports:

My grandkitty enjoying the Olympics. Minnie is a rescue, about 5 months old, living happily with my  nearby daughter and several Great Danes. She watched for quite a long time, with that delicate little paw interaction.

Here’s Minnie and her Great Dane housemate:

    Loved it! It’s nice to see such a large breed friendly to their cat friend.

    What’s fascinating to me is that the cat correctly, if tentatively, identifies the skier as the thing that is moving. The video is tracking the skier, and it the motion of the background that tells us (and the cat, evidently) that the skier is moving. Smart cat!
