Thank you for posting that, very interesting behavior wise, as science thought monkeys were the only ones who recognized themselves in mirrors- obviously not as this kitty is not jumping at image or running from it but checking - yes! the ears. So cute!

I cannot recall ever seeing a cat so obviously aware of its own image in a mirror. I often wonder how our cats can walk back and forth before a mirror and not show any sign at all that they are aware of the presence of an image.

That's pretty cool. It does seem like the cat's curious about it's ears.

Ah ha! Thanks for looking that up. She passed the mirror test- but we all knew our cats & dogs were smart.
Cats rule, monkeys drool! :hugegrin:

That's an interesting video, I didn't know either that a cat could understand a mirror reflection but she sure does. I too think she was admiring herself and wonder how much time she spends each day there.
