Many times, words are insufficient and you just have to hug it out. I love this shared experience, where we are both giving and receiving affection. It took me some time to learn dog language, as it is different from my feline dialect and this is the first dog that I ever got friendly with. Everyone gives off certain signs when they’re having a bad day and with this guy being man’s best friend and the person not being around, I have to step up and give him some of the attention that he is craving. Our owner went on a trip again and the walker will come to take this fellow out, but I have been here a lot longer than this newbie and basically, I don’t crave attention. I will let the human pet me from time to time, but I prefer my own smell, and I am very independent.
The pet sitter will change my water and clean my litter box and give me food to eat and that is all that I need. This little guy is not the brightest bulb on the tree, but as long as he doesn’t start peeing on everything, I am sure that he will be OK and we will make it till our owner gets back. This dog is in his own world and he doesn’t have a clue what is going on in life which makes me so glad that I was born a cat. I will never understand that barking thing that he does, dogs can be the most annoying animals on Earth and he never gives himself a bath, like hey what is up with that?
