I love my cats, but this news article came as no surprise to me: Feline Memories Found to Be Fleeting
A new study measured how long cats can remember information. The answer is 10 minutes.
Case in point: yesterday, my cat Troi was sitting staring at the baseboard that runs along the bottom of our living room wall. Apparently a bug had run under there at some point. She did seem to remember why she was there for a while and was looking quite attentive.
Until she started falling asleep that is. I guess it’s easy to forget stuff, when you have to sleep 16-20 hours a day.
In other feline news, I have finished Happy Tabby: Develop a Great Relationship with Your Adopted Cat or Kitten. It’s the “cat book” that corresponds to our “dog book” Happy Hound. Once I get my LCCN number from the Library of Congress, Happy Tabby is off to the printer!
