Starting running/walking again today
My friend Amy and I will be running/walking twice a week on Mon/Thurs. I’m excited to have a running buddy again. :D
Warrior Dash is tomorrow!
I’m excited and terrified at the same time.
Piano playing cats
An Animal Planet segment ponders how and why this cat seems to be playing the piano. Animal behaviorist and UC Davis alumna Dr. Sophia Lin says that cats can hear and understand different tones played on instruments such as the piano. Additionally these animals are born imitators and so this cat could very well be trying to communicate to her piano teacher owner.
Sophia researches animal behavior as a way for humans to better understand their pets:
“Pets don’t understand spoken language, they rely on body language plus desired or undesired consequences in order to learn. This means that humans must be aware of their movement and actions because every move they make while interacting with the pet influences the animal’s behavior and perception of them.”
This is how I play the piano too!
