Toddlers are cats

fb_img_1552696891627

  • Both have an insatiable curiosity.
  • Both rail about the indignity of being handled against their will.
  • Both like to knock things off tables.
  • Both give you betrayed looks when you take a photo before letting them out of a predicament.
  • Neither willingly allow you to inspect their face for whatever ended up on it.
  • Pet names.
  • Both look at you confused when you ask why they are making the crying sound.
  • They have the same entertainment. Things that rattle. String toys. Chase the red dot. Kitty TV (a window they can look out).
  • They enjoy the same food. Cheese, veggies, pretzels.
  • They both want to sleep on you.
  • And both want to establish their place above the other in the social pecking order.

With the Christmas tree getting put up, the toddler and cat are both fascinated with knocking off ornaments.

Also, cats were smart enough in their domestication of humans to adapt their pleas to use the baby frequencies. So, the cat causes my wife psychosocial pain in the wanting to be fed.

Which reminds me: Neither respect the Daylight Saving Time changes.
