How special we humans areI have a cat
The weather has become reasonable again and it is time for us to negotiate going out (on a harness). Over several hours now the cat has come down, sniffed at the back door, and then, as I reached for the harness, run back upstairs. Now after several repetitions of this charade, I have attached the harness and he is out exploring his universe.
We have spent this time establishing the price, and now he has agreed to pay. The more I live, the less I see the difference between these creatures and us humans.
