It is very tempting to ascribe human thought processes to them when they so often display human-like traits.
The sideways head tilt for instance, when you teasingly offer something of great interest to them. What is that about?
It's hard to imagine that as being a purely instinctive behaviour with no embedded meaning or message to the teaser.

But they make the same head tilt motion when they have a rat, cat or rabbit cornered.
