Whisky !

Hadn’t it been for the possibility of adoption, I do not know where I would have got a 2 month old kitten from! Something which initially started with my wanting for a pet pup has now ended with a kitten. I am not complaining as I am quite happy with her pranks and climbing on me too. I would have been more comfortable with a pup as I would have known what he would expect but here it’s a study which I will also be partaking to understand the feline species in greater detail. They are said to be very socializing and receptive to human beings ( as I have extensively read ), till now I do stand by this as the way I have seen her interacting with people around has been quite impressive.

One thing I do realize now is that cats are very intelligent; I have always been a very strong believer that dogs are the most intelligent, but now I suppose I can differ a little from that. My 2 month old kitten, Whisky has been very easily house broken, and she understands what’s the right and wrong. Having experience with dogs and rabbits, I had strong reasons to believe that dogs would certainly rule the intelligence category and I guess to an extend, I do believe that even now. Whisky is certainly quite intelligent but it’s yet to be seen with age how she develops in comparison to a pup. I somehow believe that I shall be right in my assumption that dogs do rule the intelligence cadre, but I am certainly ready to keep an open mind to see how Whisky grows up to be !

Something has got me thinking, at times it is said that work should be work; play should be kept part for the well being of both, and there are also other times when play and work should be mixed as a few say. I am sure there are many reasons that either of the sides have, to stand by what they believe to be the right methodology of handling matter. I sometimes think whether we tend to misuse the liberty we get, is it that something which human beings are bound to do. Or is it that the liberty that we wish to hold in our hands will never reach our hands; the very concept of work will not enable us to have these things in our purview. It results in a conflict when its said that there will be a freedom of work style and yet there are some boundaries which are defined within which alone this freedom is allowed to open its wings to the fullest.

At one end I feel, I should maybe try to maintain a different style in work and play. I believe that alone maybe the result which may solve the issue at hand. That way I shall always be not looking to have the freedom. Then why give the pretence of freedom and then follow it by not living up to the expectation! So, all in all I believe having low expectation is the key to having your way, you way being a small one is easily met with also. This may even be seen as a non solving methodology which I have employed so that I shall be not left with a situation without an answer to my query.
