5 thoughts on “Caturday felids: athletic kittehs

  1. My dog used to play on the slide in the playground here, but he did it the right way – up the steps and down the slide.

  2. There is no “right” way to play with toys.

    There may be a conformational way. But we already knew that about (easily boring) dogs vs (easily bored) cats. 😀

  3. i was thinking the other day, why are cats more athletic than dogs? My best guess would be that since dogs are pack animals and rely on strategic and organized group movements to catch prey that individual ability is less of a necessity. On the other hand, cats mostly hunt individually and in order to be successful must be more capable athletically. So if that is the case (which very well may not be the case), were dogs hindered athletically by the formation of the pack or did dogs’ lack of individual athletic ability result in the formation of packs?
