It seems that we can learn quite a lot about how we can get along with each other, and our relationships, from those of our dog’s and cat’s liaisons. Even though it’s a common misconception that dogs and cats don’t get on, these pictures prove that it isn’t always the case.
Making new friends can be can be a bit of a ‘wuff’ experience, but if you observe how our dear pets go about it, then your understanding of other people will turn out to be ‘purrfect’.
Don’t Be Afraid, Just Copy Your Dog
Don’t feel threatened by anyone, just because you think someone is better or bigger than you. Quite often they are just as uncertain as you are.
There again, if you’re the sort that likes to embrace, then why not?
Always maintain eye contact to show that you are interested in their conversation.
Be prepared with some basic chat. Talk about the weather, the state of the country, or maybe the decor at the party you are attending. For example: “Have you seen that lampshade, isn’t it dreadful?”
Don’t come on too strong, if you are to forward the may be overpowered.
Never turn your back on someone that you are hoping to be friends with.
Introduce them to your friends and suggest a group get together.
Suggest that you might keep them company when they are left home alone.
Do not suggest a sleepover until you have known each other a little better.
Definitely do not look bored when they are telling you their life story.
If you scratch their back, then they will scratch yours.
Follow this advice, then before you know it you will become bosom buddies.
If cats can do it, so can you! 🙂
So, if you’re at all concerned about making new friends, don’t be, just remember, if cats and dogs can do it, then so can you.
