Apologies are useless to a cat as they go in one ear and out another , I apologise for going away , I apologise for having ice cream . I apologise I want to walk up my own stairs without a cat ensnaring me ..
I apologise for taking a picture of the cat in the garden , life is one constant apology with a cat.
An apology to a cat is as useful as a chocolate fireguard but they’ll still expect it, change their cat food then apologise.
A cat will quiz you in your apology to make sure it’s heartfelt, they know if your not being sincere.
A cat will let you know that they’re listening out for an apology, if you’re thinking you can eat fruit and not apologise then think again.
But is all this standoffish behaviour just a reaction to the call of the wild perhaps?
