♥ Cats

Nine Videos of Cats Meeting Wildlife. I haven't watched all of them, but of the ones I watched, the very last video on the list is my favorite.

All three of our cats are very interested in other animals. (Except mice, who I regret to say are dispatched immediately upon arrival, unless it is daytime and I can rescue and relocate them.) Matilda will observe visiting creatures distantly from the balcony, making her assessments from afar before venturing a greeting. Sophie will tuck herself away in a corner, watching with interest until she feels ready to make an introduction with a gentle head-butt. Olivia just plows right in. "Hey, whuzzup?!" She flops down beside any new animal visitor, risking life and limb—trusting that they mean her no harm and confident in both her fight and flight capacities, in case they do.
