The big catch
Wednesday, January 13, 2021
Funny things come into my head. I made some pork sausages. I gave half a sausage to Spooky (our cat) and she loved it. I'm thinking ... in the wild ... when could she, a small cat, possibly "take down" a pig? Lucky her.
I noticed that before she eats she consistently looks left and right before eating. Hmmm. I mentioned this behaviour to my wife, and she says that this is instinct. Before eating she checks if there are other predators about to come and steal her catch, even in a house with only one cat ... instinct.
I am a rational human. Not an instinct driven cat. After feeding Spooky I made my coffee this morning, and I had an urge to look left and right ... I don't know why.
