Pussy Cat, Pussy Cat!!

There's this lovely light brown pussy cat that comes around my house every now and then. I've seen her around but she's normally fairly shy and doesn't let me get too close.

Anyway tonight she was around again and seemed to be crying alot. I happened to be having fish for dinner and (stupidly probably) thought that maybe she smelt the fish and was hungry.

So I took the left overs of the fish and went outside and tried to feed her.

When I went ouf first she seemed to run away to a safe distance; not sure of me; sizing me up.

So I left some fish sitting on the ground, close to the back door. I peeped out and sure enough as soon as she thought I'd gone she came up and ate the fish.

When I wen out the next time she started to cry immediately, letting me know she was there, still hungry, but still not confident enough to get too close.

So next time I left the fish a little closer to the door. Again she came out of hiding and ate like she'd been starved for a month (though she didn't look as though she'd been starved!).

Gradually and after a very short while she was eating from my hand. She realised that I was friendly, wasn't going to hurt her and was happy to let me get as close as I wanted.

It struck me that in someways our interactions with each other (I mean human to human) is a bit like that. We can sometimes be a little suspicious (and ofen with good reason) of each other. Then we eventually and often gradually get comfortable with each other until eventually we place all our trust in each other.

So "Pussy Cat, Pussy Cat" is perhaps a good policy. My pussy cat sized me up and after a short while reckoned I was safe enough and began to trust me.

Have you ever played "Pussy Cat, Pussy Cat" with someone you weren't sure of?

Nice comparison and I believe it is true of most interactions with people.

Yes.. trust is the main word here.. and I have noticed that the older I get the longer it takes before I trust enough to eat the fish out of one's hand..
