Learning about cats by observation.

2003-09-27 13:33

My cats were being cute, and I wanted a picture. I got out the camera.

Maya immediately got up and ran out of the room. She stayed in the doorway, looking at me, and blinking a lot. Whenever I moved the camera, her eyes closed.

What have I learned?

1. For a brain the size of a walnut, she’s pretty smart.
2. Cats experience very bright light as pain, same as we do.

So little data, so much inference… but it’s impossible for me not to accept these conclusions.
