Social or unsocial creatures?

Just a quickie, today.

Does your cat like having “strangers” in the house? By strangers, I mean real strangers, but also family and friends. Yeah, I know… but every cat owner should know it can be the (sad?) truth.

I had the ones who loved to have people in the house, who jumped onto their laps or rubbed against them – most of the time, the less the person liked cats, the friendlier they got. And I had the ones who went into hiding as soon as they heard a strange voice and couldn’t be found for the duration of the “invasion”.

Now, I have one who doesn’t mind having people in the house too much as long as they aren’t too noisy or rambunctious. He doesn’t mind being petted but I can see he would prefer being invisible. The other one hides in my room, preferably under the bed where she curls up on top of an Ikea pet – er, I mean clothes – organizer.

Easter is coming… a new game of hide and seek is about to begin! 😉

Un post court, pour une fois.

Est-ce que vos chats aiment la prĂ©sence d’Ă©trangers dans la maison? Et par Ă©trangers, je prends le terme au sens le plus large possible… incluant les vrais Ă©trangers aussi bien que la famille et les amis. Je sais, je sais… mais quiconque a un chat sait que c’est la (triste?) vĂ©ritĂ©.

J’en ai eu qui aimaient avoir de la visite, sautaient sur les genoux des gens et se frottaient Ă  eux – moins la personne aimait les chats, plus ils Ă©taient affectueux. Et j’en ai eu qui partaient se cacher dĂšs qu’ils entendaient une voix et restaient introuvables tout le temps de l'”invasion”.

Aujourd’hui, j’en ai un que ça n’embĂȘte pas trop aussi longtemps que nos visiteurs ne sont ni trop bruyants ni trop remuants. Ça ne l’ennuie pas trop non plus qu’ils le caressent, mais je vois bien qu’il prĂ©fĂ©rerait ĂȘtre invisible. Quant Ă  l’autre, elle se cache dans ma chambre, de prĂ©fĂ©rence sous le lit, et elle y reste, roulĂ©e en boule sur un organiseur de chat – euh, je veux dire de vĂȘtements – Ikea.

PĂąques arrive… une nouvelle partie de cache-cache va commencer. 😉
