I walked up the street, Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" playing in my iPod, when who trots in my direction but a tabby resembling Puss in Boots from Shrek 2. Shocked that a cat took interest in me, I stopped and kneeled down, put my hand out. The cat moved faster, sniffed me, then walked to the left of me.
Which of these do you think explains the cat's sudden loss of interest in me?:
a) I smelled evil or just... bad.
3) The cat really was Puss and Boots and thought I was Shrek at first.
c) The cat was just trying to trick me into thinking it liked me, but really was thinking "Sucka!" as it walked away.
In other animal news, my poor dog is hiding out beside the bathtub, scared of the Victoria Day fireworks. At least he wanted to be with me. But then he decided the bathtub is more comforting.
I don't know what the behaviour of these animals says about me.
