The secret life of cats

Yeah, they pretty much look at porn just like everybody else.

Fifty house cats were given collar cameras that took a photo every 15 minutes. Based on the photos, about 22 percent of the cats' time was spent looking out of windows, 12 percent was used to interact with other family pets and 8 percent was spent climbing on chairs or kitty condos. Just 6 percent of their hours were spent sleeping.

The 777 photos studied by [animal behavior scientist Jill] Villarreal showed the cats looking at a television, computer, DVDs or other media 6 percent of the time and hiding under tables 6 percent of the time.
LOL: hiding under tables. Pussies. Not mentioned in the study: how much time Ceiling Cat spent watching them ‘clean themselves’.
