Man is a mom-cat The
famous anthropozoologist John Bradshaw, who studied cats for 30 years, is convinced that even though cats are used to living near humans, they are so and remained wild. Despite this, the cat perceives the man as his mom-cat. Therefore, the kitten seeks to snuggle up to the owner or hostess, itself can jump on its knees, lamentably meows when it wants to get food, toy or other life benefits.
When the cat grows up, it continues to consider itself a cub of the host, and therefore still behaves like a child. He can ask for pens and directly demand that he be paid attention. Food on a platter is also taken for granted, but its absence is puzzling and even indignant. “What’s the big deal? Mom forgot about me? What is she thinking about now?!” – resents the cat. Of course, he immediately starts actively drawing attention to himself.
The cat can caress, rub against the mistress’s feet, allow to pat itself, and then, at the earliest opportunity, tend to the kitchen, expecting the host to head in the trail. If all the cat’s wiles are left unheeded, he begins to meow loudly, expressing his outrage at the careless host.
Who is the true master?
In general, people often surprise cats. First, it amazes that they have so little wool and, in order to keep warm, they have to go into some rags. It is surprising that people for some reason so often strive to dip into the bath with this terrible water that frightens the cat, because it is possible to drown there! And it’s not clear why a person constantly walks on his back paws – it’s so uncomfortable!
Perhaps the strangest seems to the cat is the fact that a man considers himself to be his master. After all, it is quite obvious who is the true master in the house It is the man who opens the door in front of the cat, extracts food for him, takes care of him. And the cat in response only favorably allows you to love yourself.
Cats in literature
True, as imperfect as humans are, many of them are well aware of how sentient cats living next to them. No wonder so many cunning, intelligent and enterprising cats are found in the pages of works of world literature. Puss in Charles Perrault’s boots helps his completely passive master get out of poverty and marry a princess (interestingly, in one of the Russian staged tales, the princess prefers Cat, after all he is much smarter, more enterprising and cuter than the host). The gothmanian cat Murr is presented to the reader by a wise philosopher condescending on people’s lives. The Cheshire Cat in Lewis Carroll’s tale helps the errant Alice get out of the woods, constantly supporting her, while ironising both over the days and over all those around her, including the Queen. Well, the Bulgakov cat Hippo is just a fireworks display of wit and endless charm!
So it is worth taking a close look at your cat and perhaps learn from him the everyday wisdom.
