Majority of the cat owners are aware that when a cat brings gifts to them, it’s a sign of love and affection they show to their owners.
These cute little (live) gifts are often rejected by these thankless human beings. This doubtlessly makes perplexity and hurt our poor cat companions who can’t comprehend why such beautiful gifts are always dismissed.
However, we are going to tell you a story about Ben, who had a cat named Baloo. Ben said, “She always looked so confused and sad, which made me feel pretty bad”.
Baloo is a smart cat, immediately figured out that her owner has a different taste and she must change her idea of bringing live gifts into the house and bring something…less alive.
Ben explains, “It took a couple of months of me rejecting her gifts for her to start bringing me leaves. They were always big, nice looking leaves,” Ben said. “It was such a relief from the live mice every morning that I would show my gratitude by taking the leaf and playing with it while she sat on my chest. She knew she was doing something right now.”
Moreover, Ben said, “She’s not a lap cat by any means, but when I’m upset or nervous she will hop up onto me, push me back so I lay down and then she’ll just sit on my chest purring like mad and nuzzling my face with her nose. She’s a very loving cat.”
So, we are gonna share some pictures of Baloo now.
Meet, Baloo. The confused cat.
Here she looks pretty confused, assuming that her owner didn’t like the gift.
So she decided to do something else for her owner.
Since catching something alive and getting dropped on the chest, isn’t really pleasing for the owner, she figured.
What could it be, that Ben might appreciate? Hmm
It took a while for her to understand that bringing leaves might be a good option.
“They were always big, nice looking leaves.”
So this time, she brought a twig instead of a leaf. Smart.
That’s the cutest expression I’ve seen in a while.
Ben states, “While I’m being nervous or upset, Baloo will hop onto me and push me to the bed, so that I lay down and relax”.
And then she’d just start purring upon my chest, says Ben.
