"Birds For Cats to Watch" Video
If you've taken a peek at TikTok recently, you've probably noticed some pet parents are encourageing their cats to watch bird videos on YouTube. And while seeing snippets of kitties living their best lives is certainly adorable, there are actually tangible benefits of this behaviour.
Because cats are supremely visual creatures, it shouldn't surprise humans that they might actually be truly entertained by these clips. Additionally, allowing your indoor-outdoor kitties to watch their favourite prey on TV may have a positive impact on the environment.
"Predation by domestic cats is the number-one direct, human-caused threat to birds in the United States and Canada," reads the American Bird Conservatory website. "In the United States alone, outdoor cats kill approximately 2.4 billion birds every year."
