I have to remind MYSELF of this rule everyday. It is a hard one. Sometimes I forget and I run from my Mama. What can I say? I like to reap the benefits from humans on my own terms. Mama blames herself because she didn't "socialize" me properly when I was a baby. I think it all turned out OK though. Because of me, Mama read and read about how to socialize cats. Now she helps other cats. I think she is getting pretty good at it. Of course, she couldn't do it without me, Gus and Jaq!
You'll notice I said most humans are good. Unfortunately, there are some bad ones. Gus knows about bad people first hand. He had a "traumatic accident" that took off 2/3rd of his tail before he came to live with Mama. Gus has blocked it out, but Mama and I think a bad man hurt him because he is afraid of men.
Overall, humans are good. They give us good food and treats. They play with us. They cuddle with us. They have nice warm laps. They give great massages. I love my human! I think everyone should have one.
Mama, will you turn on the heating pad for me now? Aaaahhh, humans are good!
