The present objective was to find further evidence of cat's use of abstracted geometrical patterns while navigating. It was expected that within a 4 x 4 food tower matrix, the one naive male Felis silvestris catus would make more moves to towers that would conform to the abstracted 2 x 2 post pattern, than to those that would not conform to this pattern. The results revealed that the cat's moves were not more likely to conform to the abstracted 2 x 2 pattern. Such findings may help reveal how different situational demands require different navigational strategies.
