But the cat came back the very next day.
The cat came back, we thought he was a gonner.
The cat came back, he just wouldn’t stay away.
~Harry S. Miller

Head bumps, rubs along the legs, or pressed against the corner of anything (wall, computer screen, fridge), cats mark their space, claims territory, and shares their presence with us. Although not as obvious as dogs, felines anticipate our actions, particularly those related to food.

Just the presence of another living being can help us relax. Purring, elicited for reasons still unclear to science, remind us to slow down, appreciate the good things, and share them with others.

Subtle, obvious. Self-gratifying, connecting.

What is your cat’s favorite place to rub?

  1. Dogs adore, cats ignore .. we have two gingers Harry and Angie. Harry is standoffish though as he ages he is more amenable. Angie is just a sweetie. And yes re: food. Whenever I get up from my desk they materialise from thin air and trot ahead to the kitchen!
