This is how I imagine a cat would examine something before it becomes lunch . Look at the concentration, the intensity of the gaze...and at any moment.....pounce!
This is my cat Ohana, she was intriqued by one of my bird creations. Ohana was puzzled as she whacked the faux bird with her paws, hoping for a reaction. Nothing. She grabbed it in her paws and turned her back as if to play with it, then dropped it waiting for a reaction. Nothing. She whisked it across the floor hoping for a sign of life. Nothing. Then as quickly as she became interested she was disinterested. My bird suffered very little damage from the interaction.
I hope you find many a feathered friend at Confectionique's "Feather Your Nest" Market beginning Thursday, April 12th at 5:00pm!
