I think that this is a risky thing to do, but I have no doubt at all that these people are aware of the risks. That guy that was eaten by those bears
knew perfectly well that they were dangerous too, he just lost out in the end. I don't think that he would have given it up even if he knew how it
would end though. I will say, not a choice I would make myself. Also, I think that we as a society are so far removed from nature and animals that
we don't remember that we are built to interact between species. I think it is in our DNA, it is intrinsic to us. I won't speculate here on a
spiritual purpose for that because I think that debate may derail the thread.
On a personal note, we have a little kitty here. She is feral and I think she is the only survivor from her mamma's litter. Mamma cat hid those
babies and I couldn't find them for nothing and one day... here's this little kitty. We've tried and tried and I can get very close to her but I
haven't been able to touch her. Her mamma has basically rejected her; she hisses and beats her up. For the last two weeks this kitty has been losing
ground and she is just a rack of bones. I thought the other cats were keeping her off the food but today made me think different.
She is so thin and skittish and clearly fading, but today while I was doing yard work she let me touch her a little bit. I laid down on the ground
beside her and all the other kitties were flopping around beside and licking me and she climbed up onto my back (I was on my belly) and laid down
between my should blades. I stayed there "napping" with that little cat for about an hour. When she woke up and hopped off, I tried to pet her again
and no-go, so I went inside.
I came back out a little later and she approached me seeking attention and I pet her and rubbed her just like any other cat for a few minutes and then
she went over to the food and even pushed some of the other cats out of the way to get some. That is the first time I had seen her eat in over a week
and that is definitely the first time I have seen her assert herself with the other kitties ever.
It was like she had given up. I think that little cat is dying of a broken heart, but when she got some love she started to try again. I hope that
it isn't too late for her. I don't know if I can pick her up yet and bring her in the house. I will try tomorrow and give her some "super food" that
we got from the vet. I hope that she makes it.
