4. That stndoffish leopard is saying

"Lola, I'm telling you, don't mess around with that. It's a portal to another dimension"

"Does my spotted butt look big in the other dimension?"

7. I just think they are cute.



Oh and, no. Your spotted butt does not look big in the other dimension.

11. I think he eventually figured it out.

At one point he was moving his tale and watching it move in the mirror. Then he sat back with his front legs in front of him, sitting on his haunches. Later yet, he looked at the road as it went before him, behind him and how it looked in the mirror.

That was quite amazing.

He seemed to follow some sort of reasoning process, first looking into the mirror and trying to touch what he first thought was another cat, then looking behind the mirror and down into the mirror. Amazing.

5. Looked exactly like every cat confontation with a mirror I've ever seen.

Stare at it. Sneak up on it. Paw at it. Walk around the other side. Flop down and stare some more. Repeat. Thought balloon forms over cat's head: "WTF?"

I wonder if this whole thing came from somebody thinking, "You know, it would really be fun to mess with some leopards by putting a mirror in the forest. It'll really fuck up their heads! Har, Har."

13. Same here - I've watched our cats do that entire mirror dance several times.

A cat by any other name is still a cat. Especially when confronted by a strange thing called a mirror!

Cool video! I shared it to my Facebook page.

12. Reminds me of the opening of 2001: A Space Odyssey

When the black object first appears before the primates.

15. I think all cats are freaked out by mirrors at first. Reminded me of Lucy and Harpo.
