Nằm chờ cá rán
nghiên cứu cho thấy mèo (lười) chỉ thích ăn thức ăn có sẵn trong khay, chứ không phải làm gì thì mới được ăn...
When given the choice (lựa chọn) between a free meal (bữa ăn miễn phí) and performing a task (thực hiện nhiệm vụ) for a meal, cats would prefer the meal that doesn’t require (yêu cầu) much effort (nhiều nỗ lực). While that might not come as a surprise (ngạc nhiên) to some cat lovers, it does to cat behaviorists. Most animals prefer to work for their food — a behavior called contrafreeloading.
A new study from researchers at the University of California, Davis, School of Veterinary Medicine showed most domestic cats choose not to contrafreeload. The study found that cats would rather eat from a tray (khay) of easily available food rather than work out a simple puzzle to get their food.
“There is an entire body of research that shows that most species including birds, rodents (bộ gặm nhấm), wolves (chó sói), primates (linh trưởng) — even giraffes (hươu cao cổ) — prefer to work for their food,” said lead author Mikel Delgado, a cat behaviorist and research affiliate at UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine. “What’s surprising is out of all these species cats seem to be the only ones that showed no strong tendency (xu hướng) to contrafreeload.”
