My favourite part is when Oscar looks behind the mirror to see if the other kitty is there :)

  2. So cute. I have a similar story.
    Not an animal, but my nephew. lol.
    when he was like 9-10 months old and you held him up to a mirror he always went "heeeeey", very happily, and tried to look behind the mirror to see this other baby.

  5. I also like it when the cat tries to get the mirror people to play with him. ("My people are just sitting there reading. Maybe i can get mirror people to get up and play!")

  7. My cat doesn't pay any attention to mirrors...unless she figures out they're reflecting light on the wall or ceiling. I think she may be weird...

  13. My cats used to look behind the mirror too. I have a dog now (sorry), and he looks behind the TV when there's a dog barking in a movie. Animals are too funny.

  14. I wish my cats did this. I try to hold them up to the bathroom mirror but they just stare at it and then me, like, "Yeah, so? It's a freakin' mirror! PUT ME DOWN!"

  18. My cat used to dig at the mirrors to get into the room, but he more or less ignored the mirror cat.

  19. sitting like that on your couch can really mess up your back.

    and my cat will look in the mirror to stare at me even though I'm right next to her.....weird.

  22. I have a pretty princess kitty that will sit on my vanity and stare at herself out of the corner of her eyes, blinking her eyes like she's trying to mate with the beautiful kitty 'over there' or even sometimes she'll 'touch noses' with it and once I think she tried to sniff the 'other kitty' back side.

    Otherwise, I cannot figure out why my cats are mostly unimpressed with themselves in a mirror. Maybe it's because there is no different smell?

  23. My Eka also does that. Looks at herself in the mirror then hops at the back. :)))

  24. im pretty sure my kitty understood how a mirror works... it was kinda creepy how smart she was. i miss my little smarty cat so friggin much.

  25. You guys have such smart cats! It's actually a sign of intelligence in an animal if they're interested in their reflection. None of my cats have ever understood that there are people and objects in the mirror :) They never even look that way let alone understand their reflection looks like a living cat.

    My cat tries to get behind my laptop when I play cat sounds on youtube, though, so maybe he's not complitely stupid :) Also when I play bird sounds he sometimes tries to find the birds. Maybe he's just more audial than visual.

  26. Maybe some cats aren't interested because they've already seen a mirror in their previous home and aren't excited anymore because they know what the deal is. My cat is a stray and was over two years old when we saved him. He may have had a home before and maybe at that time he got excited about mirrors and hopped back like we've seen in so many cute videos when mirror is introduced to a kitten for the first time.
