SHOW & TELL - Cat TV

More participants are here at Kelly's

When our son visited us last time he brought us a DVD imitating an acquarium for TV screens. It is especially nice when your TV has a big screen and sits all alone dead and dark in your living room while you have guests. With this DVD it becomes a big acquarium.

We wouldn't really need it because our TV is in a special furniture and I can close the doors, but still it's fun and we wanted to watch an acquarium while we were talking.

As soon as the fishes started to swim around

cat Arthur ran over an sat down to watch the fishes ! His little head moved from left to right and right and left and he was so intrigued !

Finally he had to check it closer

and even under the TV, but when he couldn't find any he watched a little more and then walked away, very disappointed

But we had a lot of fun by observing him and I think the DVD will be more for Arthur to amuse our guests then for us to watch an acquarium !

Well, this is neat and perfect for Arthur the cat. They have a small thing in the ceiling at the dentist with the fishes and sometimes they are going backwards!

I love your cat...Arthur has a new play thing to keep him busy.

I've seen those pretend aquariums and they're really pretty but terribly puzzling to a cat...lol.

OMgoodness! I'll bet he was so frustrated when he couldn't figure out how to get to one of those colorful fish. What a good chuckle you must have had, lol! Poor Arthur :0)

Pamela said...

it makes one wonder what they see..
just the movement, or do they see fish?

crazy cat!

It does save you the hassle of feeding the fishes and cleaning the aquarium every week. :)

Hi Gattina
That is so cute for Arthur to watch the fishes! I think my kitty would like that too!
Love, Ann

Awww... Arthur is so sweet when checking even under the TV. I love him.

They should sell those DVD's as cat toys... *giggles*

Hootin' Anni said...

Oh my gosh, this is too much. I think this is just so funny. Your cat, trying to climb up, and catch the video of fish.

Is there music to hear also?


I tellya, Gattina, if I displayed all my 'collections'...I wouldn't have room to live. Putting up another cabinet [vitrine] it would make it much more crowded in here than it already is. I'd prefer them up in a box. Packed away. LOL

Happy Friday to you

How fun! My folks have a cat that will sometimes watch TV with them. Maybe Arthur gave up when he realized he couldn't go fishing!

Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely weekend!

Vlado&Toni said...

oh arthur is so sweet, he is my favorite among your cats. he reminds me too of baghira. he used to do the same thing whenever he sees birds on tv.

Melli said...

Oh that is GREAT! Kitty used to love it when we had the REAL aquarium... Maybe I should get him his own little television so he could watch an aquarium all day long... LOL! (I could buy it at Walmart!)

Maria, Patchwork Mill said...

It is a very funny story, thank you! I love your cat, Arthur.

Maribeth said...

But of course Arthur was the one who loved this! He is the most intelligent! I'm sure he was glad you finally bought him a movie! Lol!

I think your cat is cute watching television. Our dog only watches when there is a dog. Outside he chases birds but ignores them on the TV. But dogs intrigue her.

Karen Sherrill said...

ur cat, Bo, does the same thing! It's so funny ;o). Thanks for sharing!

What a gorgeous cat - and such a fun way of entertaining! I suspect the same would be true for my little girl if she saw your DVD playing! Have a lovely weekend! FeeBeeKay
