most animals (and humans) have the instinct to look at something if it moves even if we didn't consciously notice it move

I believe it's because cats are very far sighted (maybe because it's more useful for them in terms of hunting to see prey?).    
When I drop treats in front of my cats, even if I make them move they cannot see them. However, when I drop the treats 5 or 6 feet away, they see it immediately and go for it.

Cats have very good vision at a distant, but poor vision up close. Partly why they use their whiskers for things up close.

Then they promptly sniff it, dont give a **** , and continue hopping up to try to get the food that you're eating.

my moms cat was an asshole that way.

Well, they can't see directly under their nose... So there's that o-o

Cat's have a majority of Cones and are sensitive to movement, their vision of detail (Rods) is extremely limited, therefore they cannot see an item unless they are practically 5 cm away from it.

Most of you will notice a cat will be extremely interested in an object until they view it up close and immediately seem disinterested. This is due to their inability to see that actual item.

I heard they have a blind spot where their nose is, and it causes them to miss things right in front of them.

Cats' sight is based on movement.

Then why can't they notice you flicking it around?

Distance. They are far sighted, so their observational skill lies in distance. Don't put it in front of them, throw it in front of them a few feet and they'll see.

cats vision works like that. with the way they hunt anything thats close up to them is possibly already dead or will soon be dead.

It's because animals can't understand that you are pointing at something, they focus on the finger.

My dogs understands pointing.
another reason dogs are the superior pet.
