If you hate cats then it always transpires that every cat in your immediate area will make a bee line for you.
Cats delight in torturing people
There is a touch of a sociopath about a cat
Dogs on the other hand seem to go all goo-goo eyed at the prospect of being all supportive
There is nothing subtle about them
They instinctively know if something is hurting inside you and will try every trick in the book to redress the balance of things .
Mental pain seems to bring out the " dog" in a dog...if you see what I mean
This afternoon Mrs Trellis called by to drop off her unused dog food.
It must have been somewhat of a difficult visit given the fact that everywhere you look in the cottage there seems to be a dog draped over something, but Mrs Trellis was putting on a brave face as she sat down for a chat.
Mrs Trellis couldn't help herself and lost herself in a fit of laughing. And the more she laughed the more Winnie performed .
I have never seen her act in this way with visitors..... Her usual behaviour is to stand , look, snort, sniff and ignore.
She seemed intent on brightening Mrs Trellis' day.
Animal behaviour never ceases to surprise me.
