16 Cats Wore Video Cameras for Science

Behavioral ecologist Maren Huck rigged 16 cats with video cameras and followed their everyday cat lives. For four years. Huck and animal behaviorist Samantha Watson recently published their study in the journal Applied Animal Behaviour Science. The project was actually a test of the technology, and the paper is about the use of cameras in animal studies, but you can learn an awful lot about cats from seeing the world through their eyes for years at a time.

When they were in their homes, the cats spent a lot of time following their humans around. They liked to be in the same room. A lot of my students were surprised at how attached cats were to people.

Read more of the interview with Huck and see a sampling of video clips from the cat cameras at Science magazine. -via Metafilter
