(From July 2014. My avatar used to be a cat – odd it’s now a bird! lol!)
Actually I’m a dog person, but it seemed appropriate, particularly as it is watching rather than participating. Apart from my Leo birth date I know myself well enough not to claim the endearing canine qualities of total dedication to one individual. My Chinese sign (a rabbit) apportions me the attribute of loyalty and I am loyal, but it’s a more complex than that.
Like the cat I tend to be a loner by nature, independent, fiercely protective of my “cubs” but not so romantic relationships etc. Catlike I’ll enjoy the comfort of a warm and loving hearth, be amiable and affectionate, drink my milk from a bowl, but underneath is the knowledge that I can hunt and make my own way when needed and under my soft padding feet are sheathed claws, razor sharp should they be required. Yes, I think a cat is apt.
