Today Norah and I were watching some stray cats.
She asks if she can pet one of the cats and I respond, “We can try, but sometimes stray cats aren’t very nice.”
She smiles and looks at me in her most sincere voice, “It’s okay Mommy, that kitty has a happy heart!”
“Really,” I say. “How do you know that?”
“Well, he has stripes. Striped cats are really happy because they’re lots of colors. Some are purple, some are yellow, some are green….Only black cats have nasty hearts”
Funny how natural intuition is! We don’t have a cat and have never taught her anything about black cats. Fortunately all the cats were to skiddish- no stray animal petting for Norah and Mommy today :).
