“At some point you realize that there are more flavors of pain than coffee. There’s the little empty pain of leaving something behind graduating, taking the next step forward, walking out of something familiar and safe into the unknown. There’s the big, whirling pain of life upending all of your plans and expectations. There’s the sharp little pains of failure, and the more obscure aches of successes that didn’t give you what you thought they would. There are the vicious, stabbing pains of hopes being torn up. The sweet little pains of finding others, giving them your love, and taking joy in their life as they grow and learn. There’s the steady pain of empathy that you shrug off so you can stand beside a wounded friend and help them bear their burdens.And if you are very, very lucky, there are few blazing hot little pains you feel when you realize that you are standing in a moment of utter perfection, an instant of triumph, or happiness, or mirth which at the same time cannot possibly last and yet will remain with you for life.Everyone is down on pain, because they forget something important about it: Pain is for the living. Only the dead don’t feel it.” -Jim Butcher
move your finger back and forth so it looks like the cat is following it
Kittens meow to their mothers to request something. When they grow up and become adults they do not meow to each other anymore! Scientists believe that the reason adult cats meow is an extension of their baby behavior and that the cat is trying to communicate a need to it’s owner!
Adult cats use many other methods to communicate. They use hissing, purring and growling with their vocal cords. However, a lot of their communication is with body language; for example, they arch their backs to signify fear or aggression. The positioning of their tail usually expresses their level of happiness: the higher up it’s held, the happier the cat is. Finally, cats also use scent to communicate! They pee on their territory and they rub off against people and objects to imprint their scent onto them to communicate to other cats that those things are theirs.
