This morning, and a little last night, I feel rejected by my cat. (Remember this: You have no more control of any human than a cat.) I make the same eyes at the cat, sweetly speak his name, but he's not interested in getting close to me, snuggling at my neck and purring, as before. Then I find myself retreating, ignoring his initiatives to play, dropping his mouse by my foot. I think maybe he'll miss my affections and try to make amends by doing what I want. Oh, the simple habits of manipulation! Even with a cat! Non acceptance!
