    Because cats dumped endurance for agility and perception.
    They want to conserve as much energy as possible and only burn it if it means getting prey or running from trouble.
    They also tend to be really lean since their bodies aren't great at burning fat stores (its hard on their kidneys).
    If you've ever played with a cat, even one that is in shape they get winded pretty quickly.

      maybe that explains why my cat will stop playing with me after a few minutes

        Sometimes they'll get frustrated and give up if they realize that they can't catch and eat the toy, or that you're behind it.
        Honestly the best cat toy I've found over the years is letting a couple moths in the house every now and then.

          is it a good idea to buy mice just to let the cat kill them?

            No, because you can't ensure the cat is going to catch it before it gets in the walls and now you have mice.
            I live in texas though, so when its warm out we get plenty of geckobros and I have definitely him with a lizard tail in the corner of his mouth.
            I like moths because I just don't feel bad about it, they fly but aren't fast, bright white so they stand out, and it lets the cat get some airtime jumping after them, and if the cat doesn't catch it, add another dead bug to the light cover of my ceiling fan in the living room.

          Lol what? All of my cats have brought their favorite toys to me to play. They fricking know we're controlling it, what the frick lol. They even go crazy if you so much as touch or look at the laser pointer.

          Where do people get this idea that cats are pure instinct? They even problem solve and my calico is constantly trying to find new ways to get into or out of whatever she wants but isn't allowed. They also carefully watch humans all the time and mimic behaviors.

            Same, I had a cat who would lose her shit the moment I opened the drawer containing the laser pointer. Animals are so much more intelligent than people give them credit for.

              A lot of games we play tap into our natural instincts but nevertheless are fun. Likewise a lot of games cats,dogs,parrots, corvids and other smart animals tap into instincts (foraging puzzles, laser pointers) but they see them as a means of having fun.
              I remember seeing a video of crocodiles at a zoo go down a waterfall slide for fun.

    Cats are ambush hunters, they need to be comfortable sitting around and watching things.

      This. My cat will enter a half-asleep trance like state and wait around for hours. Then when a rat appears she boots online and murders the shit out of it. Cats don't need intelligence because their instincts are plenty good enough.

      I've actually wondered whether there's something /x/ going on in there. Cats seem quite intelligent, at least intelligent enough that they shouldn't be content sitting or pacing for hours.

        They aren’t intelligent, they can’t associate pulling a string with its result, but they have very good memories for their overall intelligence level and a human-like facial configuration which makes humaNPCs assume higher intelligence

          They are like humanity was split into two species as punishment for something. Maybe the real ancestor of all carnivora was something more than a tree shrew and the fossil record was tampered with… by aliens.

        They aren't really "intelligent" in the usual sense. They do "know" things though, and they are naturally able to traverse the astral plane.

          "astral" and "hylic" are words that automatically mark someone as a servant of the archons. Your entire world view was carefully constructed by the forces of evil to distract you from the reality God created. The very belief in planes is demonic. The belief in classes of being is demonic - you fool, it does not refer to a practical hierarchy in any sense, but to which beings are best suited to being harvested, and which ones refuse to allow their essence to bleed into the void. Hylic is strength, and psychic is weakness. Only the most superficial and gullible could go through their days thinking otherwise.

          All is one and one is all. To separate it is to sunder it and tear apart creation to forcibly extract energies that were meant to remain in place.

          Don't fall for the reptilians memes of ascensions and afterlives and better worlds. If they are allowed to impose their order and cut up this world, the slice you will be allotted will be called hell.

    Almost every animal spends more time "doing nothing" than you'd expect. homosexual Sapiens are the only species dumb enough to create a something as absurd as hustle culture in an age of absolute abundance.

      Not him but we have cats with a very large mature garden they are free to visit and quite often they will pick a spot (outdoors if sunny, indoors if cold) and sleep or stare at the horizon for hours.
