Pet Stories: In Your Own Words
My story is very simple, I love cats. I always had a cat and most of the time they were cats that I found or they found me. This story is about a cat that found me.
GrisetteOne afternoon 11 years ago, I was outside on the balcony. Suddenly on the other side of the street I saw a small grey cat running like crazy from one side to the other. I knew I had to make the sound of calling an animal; I'm sure you know the sound I'm talking about. As soon as the cat heard the noise, it came running into my house, and she has been with me ever since that day.
I named her Grisette because of her color as you can see with the picture. She is very intelligent and I can say that all the cats I have had in my life were very intelligent. I could make them do tricks and things that I thought cats couldn't do. I was wrong. I know now how to communicate with cats. You just send the mental image to the cats and they will get it; that's how they did the tricks, not by giving them food, but by showing them the image. That's why today Grisette can sit when I ask her to, and I just taught her to do a high five with her paw! That's right - she does a high five. When she sits on me, I just ask her to give me five and she lifts her right paw and I give her a high five and then I caress her and tell her that she is such a good little cat.
So, this is my story. This is a very simple one but it means a lot to me because I know that I have something special with cats and dogs and all the animals on earth. I feel like I can communicate with them and I think this is a special gift that I wouldn't change for all the world.
