There is no better feeling than when a cat you don’t know sees you, assesses you in a few seconds, and decides you’re good and worthy of friendship
@checkervest this happens to me sometimes and it's terrifying if you're highly allergic, you end up holding your foot out, trying to stop them from getting close
@Louisa cats always know who’s allergic and who hates cats and they will flock to that person! My dog does not like cats and every cat in the area is obsessed with her
@checkervest @Louisa part of the problem is that the body language you use to summon cats is basically opposite to that of dogs, so people who are used to dogs can have difficulty communicating. Basically dogs (like humans) consider eye contact friendly, and cats find it hostile. The politest thing in cat society is to pretend to ignore someone. If you want a cat to stay away, stare them down.
