Do Cats Change Their Mind?


My guess is that lots of us cats, lady cats or man cats, change our minds about lots of things and we do it lots of times…even in a short amount of time…na’mean???

Personally, I find that I can keep Mom L dancing around on her toes trying to keep up with me IF I change my mind frequently. This works especially well when she is trying to make sure I have my fitness time aka ‘play time’.

Wait a minute, I wasn't ready yet

Sometimes a distraction comes along and as a certified cat, I must give it some attention.

Did you see that over there??

Did you see that over there??

Then the quandary is “Do I inspect the new element?” or “Do I continue to play?”

Yup Mom, I'm watching you out of the corner of my eye, but let me see what that is...

Yup Mom, I’m watching you out of the corner of my eye, but let me see what that is…

Well, what are you waiting for? I have been like this for the last at least 10 nanoseconds…

Heellloo up there! Let's get this game going

Heellloo up there! Let’s get this game going

Then you all know how it goes; there is that tickle that tells you something on your body needs attention…and you simply can’t wait.

Ah yes, I knew this paw was just filthy and in need of a few good slurps and chomps

By now, Mom L is sure I am ready to get into a full on hard playing work out. Guess again Mom L.

I'm all done now. Got some squirrel TV to watch

If we don’t change our minds often, in a split second, how ever will we keep our humans entertained? They are so needy and it is our duty to see to it that their smaller brains are kept in top working order so that they can meet our every need and whim.

And that, my pals, is all I am going to say on the topic of “Do Cats Change Their Minds?”

As If They Care: An Update

I am stranded here with The Kid Sage and the human cat sitter who cares not one whit about getting my second breakfast to me, in bed, slightly warmed…*deep sigh with a sniffle*

  1. Savvy that was an excellent article!! We are all so very very sorry that you are suffering so. Hope your Mom and Dad come home soon so that your neglect can come to an end!

  2. Savvy, you are looking particularly lovely today!!! … and it’s a girlcat’s prerogative to change her mind. We’ve got to keep those mancats guessing. ; )


  3. Love those white toes on your paws, like fingerless gloves. I love to keep ‘em guessing.

  4. Thank Savannah that might just be the ‘purrfect’ solution to our ‘mutual’ problem….
    Life w/out your BFF is very very quiet; too quiet. Trying to do Xmas cards & having to sign “angel” on them just makes me so sad…
    Love you Savannah…
    here is a gentle (((hug))) from em to you!
    Sherri-Ellen ❤ ❤
    P.S.: Come here Sage I wanna cuddle you too…..

  5. Savannah you have me laughing…oh thank you sweet girl 🙂
    That felt good!! Nylablue used to change her mind on me alot too. I used to anticipate her but she anticipated me…so she was always one step ahead of me, lol…
    I am sorry the cat sitter is such a ‘slacker’….you poor girl how you are suffering…
    Love you, Sherri-Ellen xxx

    Well, they do say that variety is the spice of life, so why not do something when the fancy hits you? Have a super weekend, Savannah and Sage.

  7. Changing our minds is very important. We have to keep the humans on their toes.

  8. S & S…we wuz gonna answer bout changin oh de mindz, but then we dee sided knot two 🙂

    heerz two a channel bass kinda week oh end ♥

  9. Savvy, my favorite thing to do is to keep the mom guessing as to my foods. Like one day I will scarf a can of food down like there’s no tomorrow and the mom says, “good, Ernie really likes that food.” But the next day the mom will open a can of the same food for me and I take on look and walk away. It drives her mad! ~Ernie

  10. We use that tactic, too! Amazing how it works! Bo and Kobi

    If we stop eating our favourite noms (always when the cupboard is full of that particular favourite as they were on offer) Mum tries to tempt us – does it work you may ask – it doesn’t!!
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  15. Aww I love seeing photos of you playing!
    It’s funny because i’m pretty sure the huskies do things just to amuse me rather than them actually wanting to do it.
    ღ husky hugz ღ frum our pack at Love is being owned by a husky!

  16. That’s hard work too to change our mind within seconds… we should ponder about a collective agreement :o)

  17. I think it’s definitely part of our job to keep our humans occupied trying to figure out what we’re thinking 24/7. It’s OUR job to make sure they NEVER figure it out! HAHAHA

    Hugs, sammy

  18. Humans get bored very quickly. What would they do without us?? Maybe they’d chase squirrels….

    Love and licks,

  19. Oh yes, we know this changing minds phenomenon quite well! Certainly, it’s not distraction as anywhere the kitty focuses is exactly where focus needs to be!

  20. What great pics Savvy! boy these new photos really show your real self! I think a girl has a right to change her mind…so a female feline is….well all about the change of mind! and I am sorry the substitute staffs are lacking your esteem..not long sweet one 🙂 hugs Fozziemum xxx

  21. Well, it is important to keep humans on their toes!

  22. its good to do a little exercise …little and often then you don’t get too tired ,xx Speedy

  23. We kittehz MUST keep the humans on their toes by changing our minds often. We like to change ours just as our dinner is served. Our favorite flavor of chicken you say? No, we want salmon this time. Makes our Mommy crazy. MOL!

  24. Wow! Looks like BOTH you and your mum have a good workout thing goin’ there.


Waving paw...HI!...what'd 'cha think...??
