Have you ever noticed how you make up stories around your pets behaviour? A friend told us recently how she would sit and watch her animals interact only to notice that she explains their behaviour to whomever she is around. It is quite typical to note animal behavioural patterns and then to try and decode these actions and reactions into little neat boxes that for us, forms part of the characteristics of our pets. When we see two cats playing in the garden with a bug, and chasing it around, we immediately note that one is more successful and always in the lead while the other tries to get a hold of the prey, and as such we connotate personality to our furry friends, for then we can relate which means we can love.
