Seven Adorable Kittens Move In Sync. A Real Test Of Kitten Reflexes
These cattery kittens seem to have an uncanny knack for thinking alike. As you can see in this brief video, they react to stimuli exactly the same, in fact in a nearly coordinated manner. The video description does make it clear they were lined up for a photo opportunity, but this video was taken shortly after.
Their cute little kitty heads bob up, down, left and right. They nod and their heads turn almost in sync, until the trick is finally revealed: a water bottle tied to a string, moving to and fro like a pendulum.
Do you want to know what is really happening here? These little kittens are demonstrating the cat’s visual abilities. See, their eyes are hypersensitive to seeing movement. On the flipside, cats aren’t good at perceiving details.
And so this giant bobbing thing? They only see so much of it, and that’s why it fascinates them so much. And now, you’re fascinated watching these cats bob their heads too.
