Caturday: Can Cat’s Be Proud?

01 Feb

“I AM NINE, HEAR ME ROAR!”

Mr. Nine has decided that, at least for today, he will be king of the castle. I do think that Queen Noel will not let him bask in that status for too long. Ah, the fur that is flying around this tree is so amusing. There is a lot of good-hearted gymnastics and batting going on, but no cats have been harmed in the process (except maybe someone’s pride).

Which brings up the question ‘do cats feel pride?’ It is funny because when one of the cats pushes everyone else off the tree, or on to a lower level, there seems to be a kind of gloating that goes on, but maybe that is my anthropomorphizing what is happening. I’ve read a bunch of articles about dog emotions, but very little about cats. What do you think? Do cats feel things like pride, shame, and guilt?

I cannot imagine a life without cats!

Just another CATDogDaz morning at the zoo ❤

    I think cats are always very aware of their status or position in the pride group. Even if that group contains dogs. So fun to watch in our homes where food and survival aren’t what they are fighting for. They are smart and calculating.

      So you do think they feel the emotion of pride?

        Of course. They feel a lot of emotions.
