Cat/Dog Dichotomy

The two most loved pets in the world are like the yin and yang of animal domestication. They both offer up companionship, laughs, and astronomical vet bills. At the same time, they are quite different from each other, as is well-known. Having owned a number of both, and cataloging their unique dispositions to varying circumstances, I found the following contrast both unsurprising and fascinating.

What kind of reaction could be expected of the furry friends when introduced to a shiny new iPad? This cat, named Iggy, digs it.

Could be the second coming of Keyboard Cat, but that’s another story. Okay. So, how about a doggy demo? What’s Chloe the Corgi think of this pinnacle of societal evolution?

I knew it. Apple is Skynet and the iPad is a Terminator.

    I’m impressed. That’s a lot more intellectual curiosity than my dog would show.

    Yeah, and those barks had meaning. I can’t play this video without my cats freaking out, and they’re hard to phase. Also: at 2:27 the iPad looks like it’s responding to the barking dog in a most explosive manner. Granted, I know next to nothing about the iPad, except that some people think it lacks in many ways, and some people think it’s a Divination.
