How to decipher a few of your cat’s sounds and gestures:
A particular cat’s human knows her or him intimately in a way no other creature can, except maybe if there is another cat in the house said cat is bonded to and lives with. I am glad I have two cats: just now they are both in one cat bed my workroom, where I am typing this from. They are folded into one another’s bodies and arms and legs (as I call them sometimes); he is licking her and she is murmuring. They can give more continuously to one another than I can.
If man could be crossed with the cat, it would improve man but deteriorate the cat. –Mark Twain
