Our cat at home has been following me wherever I go. I noticed that she’s naggy today. Since I have day off today, I’m happy to play with her. She loves to play fetch with her favorite toy, earplugs. Then I got tired so I took a break and sat on the couch when she suddenly jumped to the table and stared at me for like 2 minutes. She looked like she was examining me (Probably wondering when I’m gonna toss her toy again.). So I tossed the earplug again, but this time she won’t go after it. She just remained on the table. Just as I started going back to my room, she followed me again but I just ignored her. I heard scratches from the door and because of that I yelled at her. I think she took the hint because she stopped scratching.
I felt bad because I yelled at her but I still remained in my room because I was busy doing some paper works. However she came back to my door which is unusual because she only do it once in a while and easily gives up. This time it’s different.
I let her in after a minute of whining. I talked to her in a very possible human way (I asked her what’s the matter with her). She stared at me, purred and she gave me a serious stare. Her eyes were talking to me. I could see it and I could feel her thoughts.
Then I started to wipe off the tears…
And that’s when I realized that there’s nothing wrong with Aki (the cat) today. It was me. I was lonely today and the cat knew before I did because I was busy overthinking about things around me.
