I swear the cat started singing right on the musical cue

u/SpanishCastle Oct 06 '22 edited Oct 06 '22

it did... you can see the singers genuine smile grow as she acknowledges exactly that and tries not to interrupt the talented little feline.

Edit: On further inspection... not only does kitty start at the right cue, the singer stops the playback and quickly restarts it when she realises kitty is going for it... it even appears as if kitty takes a musical not to complain about the restart!

u/SASDOE Oct 06 '22

Seems to me as the cat is chattering at the mouse cursor. Notice how it’s fixing a point intensely.

No dude, what the hell. The cat reading the lyrics.

u/DerpyDaDulfin Oct 06 '22

I dunno, chattering is almost like a reflex, like shivering. This cat isn't chattering, it's trying to imitate her. Cats absolutely definitely try to imitate us sometimes, and if she does this often he may have picked up enough to try something like this.

What's incredible to me is that he comes in on cue. That seems like coincidence, but I'll never underestimate the intelligence of animals.

22

u/TheRealBrewDog Oct 06 '22

I come home from work everyday and kiss my cat on the forehead, she now expects it and leans into it. But while my girlfriend is in the shower, my cat will try to kiss me like I kiss my girlfriend. By apparently stuffing her nose as hard as she can into my closed mouth

I had a dog that would howl anytime we sang happy birthday! Never if we sang anything else, but none of the other variables mattered. One person? Thirty? Light on? Lights dimmed for candles? He’s howling.

19

u/AGreatBannedName Oct 06 '22

What kind of dog? We've had a few that do this, but the most enthusiastic singers were goldens.

21

u/lionhearted_sparrow Oct 06 '22

Haha he was, in fact, a golden.

13

u/UmphreyMcCheese Oct 06 '22

My friend has a golden that does the exact same thing. Only for Happy Birthday. Maybe he hates that song as much as I do.

u/DestinysOtherChild Oct 07 '22

Pretty sure he loves everyone and just wants to wish them the happiest of birthdays.

Cat is definitely making the bird sound. It's a nearly universal sound made by cats when observing certain types of prey.

If the cat was trying to imitate her his focus would be on her, not whatever it was she had in front of her.

10

u/hfak_technician Oct 06 '22

Part of me wonders if it’s actually focused on her. Video recording on computer often shows you in a small frame in one corner what it’s recording. Might be focused on the mini screen

3

u/loondawg Oct 07 '22

Anything is possible. It just seems highly unlikely given the cat's behavior. If she is sitting right there singing it would be highly unusual for the cat to ignore her in deference to the image on screen. And the bird sounds combined with the cat's dilated eyes seems like classic prey watching behavior.

Who knows what cat's are really thinking though? They can be weird little nuggets.

or its staring at itself in the webcam image on the monitor, if the camera is below the monitor.

zooming into its eyes you can see the reflection of a white monitor screen, so its probably looking at "the other cat" on the screen.

u/loondawg Oct 06 '22

She probably has something on screen like a karaoke scroll with a symbol that moves to the to lyrics. That would explain both the cat's focus and it "singing" to the song.

When my cat wants me to play with him, he runs up to the back of my leg and smacks it while I’m walking, and then takes off running when i turn around lol. He especially does this when i stop playing with him and he’s not ready to stop playing. So he tries to tackle me as i walk off.

u/xombae Oct 06 '22

My cat used to hide around corners and jump out at me and run away, then I'd chase her and then when I got close I'd run away and she'd chase me. Sometimes I'd hide around a corner and then jump out at her, she loved it and definitely thought it was hilarious when I jumped
