Terrific advice from a cat
Here’s a fun (a little crazy) experiment that you should definitely try out.
Sneak up on a cat, as quietly as you can, and try to pick it up.
I’m being completely serious here. Sneak up on that cat as quietly as a cat sneaks up on mice, and scoop it up like it’s a fumbled football.
You might call this crazy, and you’re not wrong if you do, but I prefer the word “educational”.
9 times out of 10, that cat’s going to take off like it’s on bath salts. You’ll probably also get a few claw scratch beauty marks for your trouble.
There are few things to take away from this experiment.
Number one, don’t ever do it again.
Number two, the cat ran away because cats hate any kind of sneakiness that isn’t their own sneakiness.
Number three, men aren’t cats, but you shouldn’t get sneaky with them either.
A lot of women try to get their man to commit like trying to snatch up a cat, and the rate of success is just about the same.
Oh by the way, I am not saying it’s your fault. In most cases, it’s never the woman’s fault because she basically doesn’t understand the weirdness of the male mind (more on this later).
Now, let’s try an experiment that actually isn’t impulsive.
Instead of stalking the cat, let’s try approaching from the front so that it knows we’re there. Cats, like men, are visual creatures. Cats prefer to see things coming.
By approaching from the front, we can actually get into its personal space without making the cat hate us.
After you accomplish the task of getting close to cat while it sees you, like a normal person, you can gently pet it and it might not hiss and take off like a bottle rocket.
Men are bigger than cats and not so great at slipping under the sofa at a moment’s notice, but it’s the principle here that counts.
At the first hint that a woman is trying to be sneaky with them, they’re going to make themselves scarce.
