A few weeks ago I saw this article that raised my attention. It was about a photographer taking pictures of men with their cats in order to reclaim the figure of the crazy cat dude. Since it couldn’t be more real in our case, Dani is definitely the mad in love cat guy, I thought we could add our bit to the claim of boys being as affected by cats cuteness as we ladies are – although maybe less effusive in their words and manners.
Juno and Dani have a very different relationship from the one she has with me. While I like to hug her and pet her around my arms, sometimes more than she can possibly stand (poor one!), Dani carefully respects her own space. He knows how Juno loves to inspect corners she can’t reach on her own, so they play with the box, the spaceship (remember from here?), travelling around the house and flying up high where she can prospect “new” lands. I like that we have our own different games with her, the box is Dani’s thing.
Another of Dani’s rituals with Juno is to open our bedroom door. Every time Dani arrives at home the same thing happens, Juno runs to the door to greet him for a minute and then goes to the bedroom door (usually closed) and demands him to open it for her. She jumps to the bed so Dani can pet her and then they both leave the bedroom closing the door. It’s funny how she almost never asks me to open that door, she knows it’s part of what she and Dani share together daily.
Which rituals do you have with your little furry one? Do they differ from the ones from your partner? What do you think about crazy cat dudes, maybe more hidden than us girls but definitely as big cat fous as we are?
