What are cats, anyway? Balls of fluff with the occasional scratch and a bite, the love to cuddle and scream when the food in their bowls shows the bottom. What cat would like to eat from a bowl that looks empty, anyway?

But the most defining feature of every feline, anywhere in the world is their curiosity. It is what killed the cat in the ancient proverb, because when a cat gets into her hunting mode, everything looks like a good kill...until they miss the floor or fall down in a hole.

Cats will check out anything and everything that sparks their interest; doesn’t matter if it moves on the wind or by itself, or just sits in a clay pot on a shelf somewhere and “absorbs the negative energy". If it looks interesting enough, a cat will pounce it and then learn from the experience. Or not, because cats can behave like goldfish too, if it suits them.

Luna the toyger kitty was curious enough to approach this pear-y shaped <a href="" target="_blank">cactus</a> near a window in her owner Karin Mosseri’s home in San Francisco. The cactus doesn’t seem all too threatening, really; since it is still barely a succulent, its pricks and short and soft, making them an excellent brush for the cat!

We will take a guess and say that experience has taught Luna just how much pressure to apply to the plant to get just enough of a scratch, without ending up with cactus pricks all over her face!
