What do animals think of human activities?

Do pets wonder what humans are doing sitting in front of a flat screen for hours?
How about when we go out, especially when it comes to pets that have never left the house - where do they think we're going? Do they have the concept of a greater world outdoors? Or would it be similar to humans trying to imagine where someone goes after crossing the edge of the Universe?
How about when you give them baths, put on silly clothes, make them do funny things and film to post on the Internet? They don't feel threatened, but they are also not aware of what's going on, so why do they passively accept being toyed with? Would it fit in the same category as being cuddled or something?
I'm sure they don't exactly get curious or ponder about this stuff, but they must have some pseudo-logical conclusion as to what its owners are doing/where they are so they can function inside a group.
Swollen tick mark on cat's skin

Yesterday, I spotted a tick on my cat's neck which was bigger than the size of a pea, so it has been sucking on her for two to three days. I removed it with a pincette, yet the skin area at the spot five hours later was so swollen that I thought that there's another tick at first.
Is this normal? When I remove a tick from my skin, it's nowhere near as swollen, disregarding of whether I get borreliosis, which I got.
Is this a peculiarity of cat skin or should I go to a pet doctor asap?
I don't want to visit pet doctors unless it's really necessary.
