Can You See What I See?

Have you ever caught your cat looking frantically around the room for something that seemingly wasn’t even there? I know I have – pretty frequently, too. But don’t worry, your cat isn’t seeing things. He’s just reacting to what’s going on around him.
Our cat’s incredible senses allow them to pick up on sounds, sights and smells that our senses aren’t keen enough to detect. For example, Wellington can tell when my husband is about to come in the front door long before I hear anything at all. He’ll run over to greet him a few seconds before his keys even hit the lock. Pretty amazing! And sometimes he’ll be calm one second, and the next he’s chasing down a shadow that’s barely visible. I usually take this behavior as a hint that it’s time to play and burn off some of that extra energy. Gotta keep those superhero senses sharp!
Do you have any stories to share about how your cat’s amazing senses really surprised you?
