Cat Dreams might just be the perfect Christmas gift for your little furry ones. I know my cats love to watch the TV and the computer too whenever there are wildlife shots. Dolcippi has her own particular favourite bird video on Youtube and often insists on watching it. (Thus putting a stop to all of my creative endeavours!) The advert for Foxy Bingo is interesting enough to entice Max away from his food. (Though why a cartoon fox should so fascinate a hungry Persian cat is beyond me.) Bugs on TV always catch Amberleigh's attention, so anything with crickets, butterflies and grasshoppers is very welcome in our house. So what about Cat Dreams a new cat movie with eight layers of sound and plenty of cool garden action?
The nicest thing about this video is that it covers all regions. So whether you buy it for your Canadian KittyPie, your British Pussykins or your Aussie Moggy, you won't have to worry about whether it will play. If you have a cat that sleeps all day long and howls and bounces off the furniture for half the night (hello Oliver, I am talking about you sweetie!) this video might help. Mr Olly Purr could watch it with you in the daytime and it will keep him awake at least, rushing around at best. Then, Hey Presto, mummy's first decent night's sleep in a year!
The only thing that has me really worried is the idea that people might leave it on loop while they are out. Knowing that cats will hit the screen, try and go behind the TV or even hop on top of it actually frightens me. Imagine leaving it on loop while you go shopping only to return and find the house on fire or an electrocuted cat behind the TV set? No way! My cats watch their wildlife videos under supervision. I get to laugh at their antics and if things get too frantic I can switch it off.
Cat safety is really important, would you leave your toddler alone watching TV? No? Then consider very carefully whether it is safe to leave your cats home alone with such a stimulating video! Of course, if you have a wall mounted set and an RCD device that will cut out in the event of something unforeseen, then go for it by all means. Make sure the area underneath your TV is safe, nothing that might hurt a leaping cat, and it should be fine.
