People talk about cats being aloof, but in our experience that hasn’t been the case. CCL recently adopted two cats and immediately they began to trust her and her partner. There was no awkward period. No downtime before all they wanted to do was snuggle or be next to their humans.
How do we learn to trust? I’ve heard the saying consistent actions over time. But some of us grow up in environments where we are quick to trust others. Some of us doubt people repeatedly until it becomes so hard to trust people as to limit our opportunities.
Trust is a balancing act as precarious as CCL’s new kitten Bailey (pictured here in her all black, making sue her brother Braithwaite is resting well) when she walks behind the TV.
