Smile Interesting story...

I found this interesting:

LOS ANGELES - What do cats do when their owners are away? There was one way to find out — "cat cams."

Fifty house cats were given collar cameras that took a photo every 15 minutes. The results put a digital dent in some human theories about catnapping.

Based on the photos, about 22 percent of the cats' time was spent looking out of windows, 12 percent was used to interact with other family pets and 8 percent was spent climbing on chairs or kitty condos. Just 6 percent of their hours were spent sleeping.

The 777 photos studied by Villarreal showed the cats looking at a television, computer, DVDs or other media 6 percent of the time and hiding under tables 6 percent of the time.

Coming in at 5 percent was playing with toys; eating or looking at food finished at 4 percent.

Interesting...I'd love to get one of these for my cats - I'd love to know what they get up to when I'm out, or when they go out of sight outside, it's one of life's unsolved mysteries

I bet Liam and Darby try and see who can p**s off Zipper the most. They probably have a tally sheet hidden somewhere.

LOL, that would be interesting to see..

But on a serious note, this sounds like something I would actually do.. Though I think I'd set it on a time lapse of 1 second intervals rather than 15 minutes.. Just think of how much kitty can do in the time space of 15 minutes? It's too long. My little camera can successfully take time lapse over a period of 10 hours before the battery dies, I know they can manage this.

Brandon that would be a really neat thing to see. We oftimes wonder what they dream about especially when the whole twitching starts with ears and four paws. Can you imagine how much fun it would be to come home to sleeping cats who get up when you walk in and yawn and stretch and look like they have been sleeping all day. I think we would be surprised.
