Yeah, I've slipped and fallen, and if there's nobody around, it is easier to handle.
I've seen my cats slip and fall, and if I laugh, they act like their feelings are hurt. They turn their backs on me, and their ears go back, while
they blink their eyes as if they were trying to hold back tears. I know cats don't cry, but I've seen a full range of emotions with them. Then they
start cleaning themselves nonchalantly like, "I meant to do that". And yes, they do get embarrassed. They can get very jealous too.
I have a 7 year old tom cat who's mother birthed him in front of me and then ran off, leaving him encased in the birth sac. He would have suffocated
within a minute, so I tore the sac and blew on his little nose, and he gasped his first breath.
This cat thinks I'm his mama, and he doesn't like my husband. My husband cannot get near me without this tom cat yelling and running to get between
us. He's a cool cat, he likes everybody...except hubby.
All mammals have a limbic system within the brain, which is the seat of emotion. Therefore, they all have emotional responses. They may not have the
frontal lobe capacity to consider all the implications of their feelings, but they do have them.
