I wish to say that I am a cat lover as well.....
(Just lost my cat of 14 years, been two years ago now...)
(I said 'just lost', but even after two years, the pain is still there...hmmmm.)
However....not to rain on anyone's parade (and forgive if this has been mentioned, as I haven't read all pages of thread)....
The 'kneading' instinct is quite common. As an instinctive response, even if it originates as infantile (the kittens will 'knead' their mother's
breasts to stimulate milk flow) I don't think it is appropriate to anthorpormophize this behavior.
It is hard to conceive of the cat's ability to be conscious of his/her actions, in regards to attempting to rescuscitate the dead cat.
AND, I am not heartless. I see the short video, and appreciate its meaning, but ONLY in the context of how WE, as HUMANS, interpret it. It is best
viewed as an analogy, of sorts.
A 'commentary' on today, if you will.
Take that as you see fit.
(SPAY and NEUTER your pets, please!)
