Monday Mischief: Another Mirror

I caught another moment of mirroring from these two. I actually think it is Charles mirroring Sofie. The act of mirroring another’s position “is a sign of comfort, trust, and rapport.” I think it is the way that Charles shows Sofie that he is in sync with her. I don’t notice Charles doing it with Louise or the cats, but I do notice Sofie and Louise with each other and them with the cats.

I have often talked about mirroring, even between the cats and dogs. It happens way to often for it to be random. What do you think?

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Wonderful Wednesday: Moments of Mirroring

This is one of my favorite shots of the animals mirroring. Here is little Mini Cooper with Louise laying together on the bed under the blanket (I did the blanket thing, they didn’t). Humans mirror too.

Mirroring is a social phenomenon where animals mimic another’s posture. In humans, we may not only mimic posture but gestures and words. It is an unconscious behavior but it is a sign of being attuned and in sync with the other being. “It shows that there is comfort, trust, and rapport among them.”

Do you mirror?
