CATS ON TUESDAY
Saturday my friend visited us together with her 3 year old grand daughter and was of course very intrigued by the cats ! She has a big dog at home, but cats she only had seen in Kindergarten on pictures. Now I don't have to explain how 3 year olds behave when they are happy and want to touch an animal. It doesn't work without noise of course.
Pookie and Kim got hysterical and disappeared to all points of the compass. Lisa just had a bored look on this strange mini human and vanished too. But Arthur stayed. He apparently loves children and probably had never had a bad experience either. It looked like if he had met her everyday.
The first approach
Arthur wonders who it is, never saw this mini human and
lay down to wash. Of course what else. Cats when they don't know how to behave they wash and think it over. It's more esthetic then digging with a finger in a nose and think !
That mini human is OK he thought
and asked her why she stopped petting him !
Finally as nothing new came up, he strolled away. But not very far, he even came back and followed her in the house. Do your cats behave like that with a 3 year old ?
As he is always tracking the neighborhood he must have met a lot of kids and because he is not afraid of them he apparently only had met nice once !
The rest of the cat family only showed up when there were no strange sounds around anymore.
The Unplugged mom has reminded me that we all have to do something for PEACE in the world. Maybe if politicians don't listen to people they may listen to their cats if they have any. Usually they are more "dog" because a cat is too independent and wouldn't do what they want ! so please lets all together Blog Blast For Peace and read this from Mimi's Blog !
