Cat Uses Sign Language to Ask for Food

My friend, Dr. Kim in Australia sent this video....for people who don't think cats can learn very much, this kitty knows sign language. Of course, when it comes to food, even amazing what I might learn.

  • As Pavlov's dog (and Bill Murray in the Cracker sketch) will tell you, it works only because the cat gets fed each time.

  • actually, more effective is intermittent reinforcement - when the cat is first likely to receive a reward...but then the reward, over time, becomes random. Works on people too - we call that a slot machine.

  • In reply to Steve Dale:

    True, but unlike Steve Martin, this guy didn't stop feeding the cat.
