Does any other animal delight so openly in the sensual pleasures of physical contact? They?re so addicted to the hedonistic sensation of snuggling that if nobody is around they?ll rub up against a doorframe or table leg. If they have a willing volunteer, they?ll demand petting and caresses until they can hardly stand the pure, unadulterated joy, at which point they either fall into a stupor or start biting you. If you don?t have anyone to be tactile with, you can still take a leaf out of the cat rule book; relish every self-indulgent moment of feeling the wind in your hair and the sun on your skin.
Not only do they make lounging around into an elegant art form, they?re also outrageous flirts. With mesmerising eye contact and joyful frolicking, they can make a big pussycat out of even the most reluctant convert; any gruff man who claims he didn?t want a cat in the first place will be replaced with a soft-hearted guy who goes all silly when kitty wants to play. The velvety paws, come-hither gaze, and exuberant, coquettish prancing will melt even the hardest of hearts and in no time at all, little Mittens will have everyone under her (unopposable) thumb. Your cat?s behaviour is a masterclass in seduction (and just think, all this time you?ve been trying to copy Beyoncé).
