Is it Live, or is it HD?

Here is Charlie, our younger cat, watching the nature documentary Winged Migration, which features a lot of eye-croggling footage of birds on the wing.
Our cats normally ignore the TV, but Charlie found the film irresistible. He sat in front of the set and watched it for at least twenty minutes.
Of course during his excursions outside he sees a lot of birds, including sandhill cranes, snow geese, and ducks, all of which winter in this area. (He also thinks birds are tasty and eats them whenever possible.) So maybe he thinks he's seeing old friends.
Score another success for HDTV.

My (now deceased) cat, Amaryllis used to watch bird documentaries on the TV. She never seemed to be particularly excited, or attempt to spring at the TV, or anything like that; she would just sit in front of the set watching very intently. I used to imagine that she was thinking, "At last! A programme for cats!"

My big cat is obsessed with Jamie Hyneman from "Mythbusters".
