One Cool Cat: Update
I’ve had two friends tell me their cats will sit and intently watch nature programs on TV. One friend even said his cat will crouch and go into “hunter mode” when an animal appears on TV. I’ve also had friends tell me to play other types of jazz and see what Kato responds to. I played a Dave Ellis CD (contemporary jazz) – no response at all. I played a Charlie Parker CD (jazz from the 40’s and early 50’s), and Kato did come over, stare at the speakers, and sit down and listen for a while – but then he got distracted and wandered off.
I’m not sure which is more unsettling: that Kato has added to his repertoire of commands he gives me (Time to get out of bed! Open the door for me! Give me some tuna! Play me some jazz!), or that Kato apparently does not like the Grateful Dead.
