I haven't had too much time to work on this project because I have been spending most of my time at the beach, looking for dolphins. I played a bit with Emma at my house. She seemed intrigued, for a while, and I felt like I was collaborating with her on her level. After a while she started hunting and lost interest in what I was doing or trying to do. [Write Comment]

Recently I worked with Emma, our pseudo house cat. The result was a semi-success. While I definetly was able to interact with her and in this way able to collaborate with her, she didn't react to my actions how I had originally intended. I believe this further emphasizes the importance being flexible with your project goals, as well as evaluting your goals to see they are something the animal will acutually want to do.
