Today, as it's Wordless, we thought we'd celebrate the beauty of silence. Mum and I (and I'm sure all my furry pals) think this world is far too loud, and it's humans and all their inventions that make it so. Sometimes it can be really overwhelming for sensitive types like us cats and my mum.
This morning she was ranting on about how she is fed up with being told she is far too quiet and shy when in actual fact the truth of the matter is she likes to think before engaging her mouth, which means she doesn't ramble on unnecessarily.
This is mostly because she worries about saying the wrong thing or upsetting someone. But she also suffers from social anxiety, and maybe it's her starsign too. She's a Cancerian, likes to test the waters a bit before learning whom to trust. But I think it's because she is so much like a cat, and feline friends, are we not like that too?
And like a cat, Mum does most of her communication by thoughts and telepathy. That's why she gets on so well with the animal kingdom, especially cats. In fact, if Mum ate meat and liked to hunt she'd make a great cat! But she's a vegan and doesn't believe in hurting living things.
