Cats & Dogs & Television

How into TV are your pets? The dogs in this video take it very seriously.

Of all the cats I’ve had, only Buster took an interest in television. He always tried to catch the little elephants on Nature. And he sat in my lap and watched all of The Creature from the Black Lagoon. I could tell he really liked it.

    My old cat, Tiger, loved Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom, and only turned aside when commercials came on, then back to it. My son’s Aussie pup
    sometimes looks at the screen for a short while, but she is too hyper to
    last long.

    I would like to request the song by Carroll Roberson called Faith Unlocks the Door, please.


  • Erlene Talbott

    Thank you, I’ll be looking for it.

    That last one, with the darts, takes the cake, although that very intense looking tabby was pretty good too. There are certain DVDs that my cat will perch near the TV and watch fervently.

    My dog loved watching programmes with monkeys in them.

    Reblogged this on Allison D. Reid and commented:
    It has been one of those aggravating days already. I’ve been on the phone fighting to get an auto-debit reversed that was twice the amount I agreed to. *sigh* After waiting 45 minutes for a supervisor, I was finally just told to call back at 2. So thanks to Lee Duigon for posting this video today, because it made me laugh, and I needed that! Maybe some of you need a good laugh too…

    Incidentally, I don’t have a cat that watches TV, but one of them will chase anything that moves on my phone screen. She’s knocked it off my desk more than a few times in her frenzy to “catch” her pixelated prey.

    I had a dog who loved watching soccer on TV. He’d run in front of the television when he heard the Match of the Day music.
