Have you ever watched a cat? Have you ever watched the gracefulness stretch from its paw to its whiskers? I have always found cats fascinating, however, as with any other fascination of mine it’s got something to do with how I don’t fully understand these creatures. Because dogs and rabbits have been part of my whole life my understanding for their language has come naturally, but for some strange reason I have always been able to communicate well with cats too. I am definitely not saying that I’m a sexy cat woman (even though I wish I could borrow her outfit) that talks the cat tongue, though, I do believe that some people get along with certain animals better than others. Let’s take Toby as an example: The only animal he can understand and be on the same ‘social wave’ with are dogs. His whole body language is screaming “I’m a dog” for a cat, and that is also why Toby does not like cats, just like dogs and cats do not easily like each other. Toby will therefore not get the “I do not understand what you want, I do not know you, keep a distance” from a cat, and then he will answer with his strong dog vocabulary “I wanna play, you are funny, I’m just going to touch you so you know I like you”, which again actually means for a cat “I’m going to beat the crap out of you, bitch!”. So lost in translation is possibly a valid reason for miscommunication here. Therefore, it was about time to drag Toby on a lecture in graceful cat language. Seoul was perfect for such activities, as cafes around here are what we can call ‘furlicious’.
This was such a warming experience, and I think even Toby has gotten a softer heart for these elegant meow singers. Who knows, maybe we will end up with a little fluffy meow-meow in our house.
