We all use mind-talk with our cats. If you don’t believe it, consider this: How often do you just think about getting up and fixing your cat’s supper or offering a treat and all of a sudden your cat becomes alert. She might look at you from across the room—anticipation in her eyes. Or she runs from another room and sits in front of you staring or rubs against your legs. It’s possible that she heard your thought.
They say that cats read mind pictures. I have to saythat I’ve experienced this many times over the years—most succinctly when I managed to talk a very uncooperative cat out from under a deep corner table and into a cat carrier—yes, using only mind-pictures.
I wonder sometimes if my cats use mind-talk with me.
