VIDEO: Find Out Why Your Cat Acts So Weird


Published at 10:36am 19th May 2016.

We all know that the internet loves cats but now an online video reveals exactly why your cat acts so weird.

The TED-Ed Project posts lessons made in an engaging way to be shared across the web.

The video description says: “They’re cute, they’re lovable, and judging by the 26 billion views on over 2 million YouTube videos of them, one thing is certain: cats are very entertaining.

“But their strange feline behaviours, both amusing and baffling, leave many of us asking: Why do cats do that? Tony Buffington explains the science behind some of your cat’s strangest behaviours.”

The cute and amusing cartoon shows ‘Grizmo’ the house cat kitty. Tony Buffington narrates the video as he explains exactly why this cat acts the way he does.

He explains that cats retain the many instincts which made them survive in the wild from millions of years ago.

Back then cats were both solitary predators of smaller animals and prey for larger carnivores. Today, cats grasp these instinctual behaviours to protect themselves while also looking for their next mission.

They include hiding in tiny spaces, climbing high to observe the home and scratching their claws. They all come from how they evolved and survived in the wild.

But did you know that your cat’s purr might have magical healing powers?
