Klaw was lying here between me and the keyboard, facing toward the monitors. The window is behind me.  From some angles, you can clearly see outside via the reflection in the monitors.  Someone jogged past my house.  Klaw saw it in the monitor and immediately got up and looked over my shoulder out the window! :)  I'm a proud Meowmy. :wub:

Cats, generally speaking, do understand about reflections. If you place a mirror in front of a cat, tap on it and say "who's that in there?" the cat will take no notice. I have seen youtube videos where a cat mistakes its own reflection for another cat, but I've never known a cat to do it in real life.

Yes, but I was very surprised that he picked it up in the monitor - where he's watched videos before - and he's always ignored reflections in the mirror.  I had one cat that would admire herself in the mirror.  All the others ignored reflections, but seemed to understand - like if I moved my hand to touch them, they would look back and up at my hand after seeing the hand move in the mirror.

Anywho, I was proud of my little boy for figuring out that he was seeing out the window in reflection. :)
