If You Have a Cat, You'll Appreciate This

I get a real kick out of this simple video (via Geekologie). It’s a cat is stalking its owner, very sneakily. I have not seen moves like this since Red Light Green Light in third grade!

My cat doesn’t have to be as stealthy—he has enough mass and strength to overwhelm any phantom he encounters—but the video is still really cute.

On a somewhat related note, I’m told that the kitty is actually an amazing hunter as recent animal psychology research says that prey animals scan for changes in the landscape. The cat’s ability to maintain the same posture and be completely still make it an amazing predator. If you’re interested in that idea, animals scanning their surroundings is discussed in depth in Thinking in Pictures: and Other Reports from My Life with Autism.
