What TV Looks Like to Dogs and Cats

Have you ever wondered why fluffy doesn't like to watch "Doctor Who" or "Game of Thrones"?

Why don't our pets have a favorite TV show like we do? Well, to put it simply... TV shows and movies don't make any sense to them.

Pets can't visually make sense of the programs we love. To them, everything looks like one big blur -- but dogs and cats see different things.

Grumpy Cat hates TV because, well, Grumpy Cat hates everything:

According to scientists from Trinity College Dublin, dogs see in slow motion. That's what makes them so good at chasing rabbits and fetching balls, but it also means those pretty graphics on a TV just smear together.

For them, it'd be like watching like that one slow motion scene from "Inception" over and over and over again.

Cats, on the other hand, process visual information much faster than we do ... which is why you may have a clumsy cat that constantly dashes into things. (Can you blame them? It's a lot harder to dodge things if they're moving super fast.

To a cat, a show literally just looks like never-ending, mind numbing flickers of light.

Some pets do like to watch these weird, garbled images, though. If you've got a couch potato pooch, check out services like DogTV. DogTV creates special shows made for your pets because they tweak the frame rate and color spectrum.
