Which reminds me of the day I was watching "Nature" on PBS - something about bird migrations with lots of pretty pictures.

Both cats, I shit you not, were ENTRANCED by the TV. It was hysterical.
I remember reading once somewhere that dogs and cats had a tough time seeing the pictures on old CRT televisions due to the frame rate (think "squigglevision" back in the days of scrambled cable). Now with LCD and plasma TVs, they don't have this problem.

Not sure how true this is, but I have never seen cats riveted to the TV before. Luckily, they didn't hurl themselves at it in a hunting frenzy.
