After dropping Audrey off for surgery this morning, I got thinking about the connection we have with our cats.
Connecting with our Cats
I cringe when I hear people say that cats are aloof, cats are not friendly, cats don't care about their people, cats are all the same. Really? Boy, it is obvious that they don't know or care much for cats. They certainly have not taken the time to get to know and be drawn in by the magnetic personality of the feline.
Why is it that some people are so willing and ready to make a dog their bestie and yet will not give any time to bonding with a cat. They walk, talk to, play with and cuddle their dogs who in turn give it all back to them. Yes, man's best friend. Then they completely ignore the cat and expect the cat to be all over them with their charm. No..it doesn't work that way. They need the 'invitation' and the assurance of your respect and love just like the dog does.
Take a few moments each day to connect to your cat. Really connect.
Most cats love to be combed and brushed. They feel so good after.
Talking to your cat is something that they really do love. Try it. They will respond in their own personal way.
They love to listen to a familiar voice.
Learn to read your cat's body language. The tail position tells you many things.
I had a cat that loved to dance around the room with me. I would hold her up to my shoulder and we would dance in the kitchen. She would hang on and purr. She loved it.
Pamper your cat. It will make them feel the love and be happy to return it.
