Have you ever pet a cat?
really pet a cat?
I mean, yeah, sure, you’ve pet a dog.
But dogs are easy. Dogs, for the most part, will waltz up to strangers, tails wagging, eyes bright, and ready to be loved on. Anyone can pet a dog.
But cats are altogether different Beasts.
Cats are skeptical of strangers, always watching their loved ones from a high vantage point.
(I am certain that, should it come to it, cats would not only survive the apocalypse, but would thrive.)
Cats are not so eager to be cuddled and coddled by those who are not worthy.
Which is exactly what makes it such an incredible experience to be liked by a cat. And I don’t mean tolerated, but really, truly liked.
Perhaps it’s the human want for the unwantable, but no one can deny that there is a certain mysterious air that lends cats their desirability.
