When Priya the cat's owner was looking at videos of kittens on her computer, she noticed that Priya was watching, too. Priya, who was adopted from a shelter by YouTube user Pomona2006, even tried to play with the cute kittens, and searched for them even after the computer was turned off.
As this cats-eye-view graphic in Wired points out, cats see the world much the same way we do -- just a bit blurrier. Cats can see TV and this particular cat may have been more attracted to the kittens' movement than the kittens themselves. According to veterinarian Dr. Jillian Orlando over at VetStreet, some cats love to watch TV, because they're attracted to quick movements across the screen -- a kind of playing or hunting behavior.
