The list author says: "indoor cats need to find ways to stay busy and keep learning. pop in a movie for them every so often; I find that these selections keep cats' attention. (not all felines respond to videos, but I find that most do :)"
"if you really want to get experimental with your enrichment, read your cat the "dogs" book by baby einstein before turning on this movie. many types of pets have been shown to be highly responsive to being read simple story books, they enjoy the interaction with you."
"another one my cats like is "frisky, furry, and fearsome" about animals in national parks - they don't take their eyes off it. it's not available on amazon, you have to get it at ambassador video, their url is: http://www.ambvideo.com/travel.htm"
"let me explain... my cat, apache, LOVES this video. he'll sit and watch a whole episode. i'm not kidding. he gets all excited and when the boys on the show run around he gets up and plays and runs around too. my point = watch your cats to see what they are interested in; everyone's different. try the kids dvd section of the public library and experiment to see what your own cats like and dislike."
"My cats cannot take their eyes off this movie when it's on. or at least they always keep an active ear glued to the screen :) in fact, i can't decide what's more adorable, the movie, or my cats' reaction to it when it's on. (available on netflix. usually out of stock here.)"
"cats enjoy music, laughter, and playful attitude on in the background (or to sit and watch). disney movies in particular seem to catch the eye of the cats I know. quick-paced, all colorful, bring "pleasant atmosphere" into the room to ease tension or relieve boredom. and the ones with music seem to perk them up, as well. try them out, every cat's different."
