Cat plays Jenga (video)

It’s no secret that I have a certain ambivalence towards cats. I find their aloofness somewhat uninteresting, and much prefer a sloppy kiss from a dog than a brush across the foot from a feline any day.

But, over the years I’ve come to appreciate dog-cats, and even the occasional aloof cat, that I’ve now learned can be wooed, after a very long time, to the point where it only occasionally attacks you while rubbing its belly.

Then there’s this cat, which reminds me why I don’t totally dislike the animals. The thing is playing a game, or something. It’d be a neat trick for a dog, let alone a cat.


Color me intrigued.

  • I believe “take over the world” was checked off on their “to do” list a while back.

  • She’s currently hiding under her blanket. There’s a fly in the house, and she was quite disturbed around 3am last night, in bed, about it. Then, this morning, the damn thing decided to buzz her while she was eating breakfast, and all hell broke loose. Poor little girl backed away from her food bowl about six feet and wouldn’t eat! Imagine a dog not eating! She’s funny, she hates flies, but she also fears them a bit.

    I don’t know how much thought that this cat is putting into this, but it seems like it’s more than one might think. He or she is clearly enjoying the game.

    My rooommates have two cats. One has selected me as his go-to guy for meals, treats and as the human to whom he dispenses his affection. It’s pretty amazing how they can pick up on your habits, and how they connect things happening around them. But neither of them seem to have the patience for something like this.

    For that reason, I think this is one cat that’s smarter than average. I was particularly amused when the cat decided that the game was over.

    I play chess with my cat, but she always cheats.

    I sometimes wonder John if you should not own a zoo. ;]

    Cats are very, very smart. They could take over the world if they wanted to — except that doing so would interfere with nap time.

    as a cat person curiosity is what makes cats such an interesting creature, until you really live with a cat and see their personality you can’t appreciate them, they aren’t as much fun as a dog but they can be just as endearing in their own way.
