I think I am on my way to getting my PhD in human behavior but need a little bit more help. Yeah, some people may say there is no such thing but bear with me. When I originally came in, I was really scared of people and didn't want anything to do with them. After all, being outside on your own so early in life was tough. Over years of observations, I started getting some understanding of the human species and concluded that people were actually not really bad. For ex. at dinner time, I jump up on top of a condo so they can see me and have set up a ritual: meow, meow, meow...and they bring me a plate of wet food. I love food so it never takes me long to clean it up and then be ready for some fun. I'm quite playful and can be quite fast, chasing and pouncing on the red dot. I have also discovered the joy of gentle petting when things are quiet. I won't lie, it is still somewhat scary but I've been making progress. At this point, in order to pursue my studies, I really need to find a thesis advisor, someone that already has a cat (no I won't cheat) to help me get comfortable while I can continue making progress but this time in a compassionate home environment. Upon graduation, we can then have a big party with wet food all day long for the kitties! Deal?
