Yes exactly. A woman came to my house tonight to apologize to me for her behavior and I got mad and raised my voice and my cats come running and they looked scared. My neighbor was surprised at their manner. Like why is my Mom upset? They were very alarmed. I reassured them that I was ok.
Once I had split open my head and my cat Precious comes running and refuse to leave my lap. The neighbor was shocked at Precious demeanor and her refusal to leave. I tell everyone she is Dr. Precious.
She was lost the other day and when I went to retrieve her I called her from several hundred of feet away and she comes running a hundred miles an hour and jumps in my lap and kisses me on the mouth. She was so excited to see her mom. All the neighbors broke out in applause to see this helpless creature reunited with her mom. Now the neighbors ask for Precious all the time, she is a celebrity.
Cats will attack when they feel in danger and they will love when loved.
