Wordless Wednesday – Do Cats Enjoy TV?

Cat TV

Welcome To Wordless Wednesday At Create With Joy!

Tsunami Loves Cat TV

After a long day, what do you do to unwind? Some of us curl up with a good book… some of us go out on the town… but just about everyone watches television to relax! According to a 2017 survey conducted by Statistic Brain, did you know that:

  • 99% of households own at least one television set and 65% own three or more sets?
  • 67% of Americans regularly watch television while eating dinner?
  • The average person spends 9 years of their life watching tv?

It’s apparent that television plays an instrumental part in our daily lives. Have you considered the role that television can play in the lives of your pets?

It’s important to provide our pets – particularly our indoor cats – with plenty of intellectual stimulation and safe entertainment, and cat tv is one way to do just that!

Most cats love to watch things that stimulate their natural prey instinct and catch their attention through quick movement across the screen. We’ve found that our cats enjoy watching birds, squirrels, fish and other wildlife flicks the best!

There are actual videos you can buy and stations you can subscribe to that specialize in program that’s specifically designed for your cats – but You Tube provides a constant source of entertainment for our cats!

The one thing that you should do before leaving your cats unsupervised during Cat TV time is to ensure that they have a safe set up (you don’t want the television to go crashing on their heads should they get overly excited by the prey that they are watching!)

We watch our cats watch Cat TV at times for our enjoyment (and those are the times we give them more active programs to wach, when they have our full attention and supervision). If we are going out to run an errand, we leave them with a peaceful aquarium scene that will entertain and relax them!

    I have watched lots of cats watching tv and it is so cute, our cats watch when where watching animal shows particularly lions & tigers, it will catch their attention. Thanks for the tips though. And thank you for hosting!!!

    We have some kitties at the shelter who LOVE Cat TV.

    Hope you’re doing well, Ramona. Hugs to you, Magellan and Tsunami!

    They do like TV but hardly ever watch it, because most of the times it isn’t Animal planet on :-).

    Have a great week!

    My kitties do watch tv, mostly animals. But most of the time they like outdoor tv.

  7. Very interesting. I know my godparents cats watch TV at the window. They spend hours watching.

    Thanks for hosting and have a wonderful rest of the week.

    My cat Tippy LOVES watching nature shows. Naturally, her favorite nature shows are the ones with birds in them. We’ve been making an effort to watch less TV, however, so she’s been watching REAL birds instead. 😛

    It is always so cute to see a kitty chasing images on the tv screen! My kitties don’t often care about the tv, but it has happened a few times. We are film addicts in this home, so we watch far more movies than we do actual tv.

    We no longer have cats, but enjoyed their antics when we did. My last one loved to go hide in flowers, under things, whatever, and also to hide wads of paper that she loved to have me throw down. We now have a dog, and he doesn’t really watch TV, but will bark and wag his tail whenever there is a dog on TV. He wants it to come and play. 🙂

    Pets are so fun. Ours entertains us as well as our TV. 🙂

  11. Not only did my late cats enjoy TV, we used to call Jake our ‘jazz cat’. He would go into our family room, jump up on the sofa, and look expectantly at the stereo until I put on Jazz FM. He would then proceed to relax and often fall asleep. It was lovely! Thank you so much for sharing this post with the Hearth and Soul Link Party!

  12. Pam says:

    Oh that’s adorable! We no longer have our Lucy, but I never realized she might like specific videos!

  13. Thankfully NO Tv in the Palace. I banned it as there was nothing on to interest me, and what peep watched just got in the way of my playtime and lap sitting exercises.

    I watch birdie TV out the window – that is my private channel and it is always on 24/7. Sometimes there is a chipmunk in there too and sometimes wild turkeys. It’s fun.

  15. speedyrabbit says:

    I wonder if they do bunny tv,xx Speedy

  16. We confess, we don’t watch TV much at home, so when it comes on we ignore it UNLESS we heard bird song!!
