The Social Life of Animals

Postby Don Schaeffer » Thu May 19, 2016 6:16 pm

My cat and I play trust games.
She wants nothing better than to bite my hand.
She purrs when I permit her to put my hand in her mouth.
She is merely gentle with her teeth.
She wants me brave giving my face to her paws,
gentle with her claws.
I am gentle reaching for her head
to scratch behind her ears.
We are mammals.
Don
