Despite their reputation for aloofness and independence cats are really highly social creatures. To the uninitiated they may appear cool, indifferent and disdainful of humans. They don’t run up to you like dogs, or wag their tails and take off the contents of the coffee table but their love and affection are obvious. Especially to their human family. Come home at the end of a long day away and Slasher and Fluffy will often rise, casually, and saunter over to you to greet you.
Or they will ignore you completely as part of the punishment for leaving them all day.
Or, they will race up to you, tail in the air and look lovingly in your direction (possibly with full purr), circling your ankles, while eyeing their empty food bowl.
No matter what they do they will inflict their unhappiness that you were absent. Like an archer’s arrow you will get the point.
So, what do they do all day while you are out?
Have you ever wondered?
Do you think they sleep?
Help is at hand with this very with this very informative video by Cole and Marmalade that will give you a little idea as how they pass the time.
