It’s time for Feline Friday, hosted by Sandee from Comedy Plus!
My hearing is very bad. I am deaf on the left ear since birth, and after a bad case of middle ear infection when I was five, I have to wear a hearing aid in my right ear as well. I don’t wear my hearing aid at night, so I won’t hear our pets barking or meowing then.
I am very sure Jackie knows when I can’t hear her. When she wants something and I don’t wear my hearing aid, she makes sure she is in my line of vision (like in the picture) and shows me what she wants me to do (feed her, let her in the garden, whatever 🙂 ). I don’t see her mouth moving in these situations, so my guess is she doesn’t meow. Usually she is very vocal, but she she seems to know exactly when this won’t work.
I don’t think Jackie is an exception. Guide dogs or therapy horses have to figure out different ways of communication with humans as well. I know I always say this, but our pets are so clever!
1. I wish I could tell my teenage self “Yes, your life won’t be easy, you’re right about that. But there will also be wonderful moments and lots of love, so don’t be afraid!”
2. I think the most romantic movie is Shakespeare in Love. Such a great cast, and such a strong female lead.
3. This afternoon was the last time I enjoyed the bright sunlight. It had been a while, and the days are becoming longer, it was wonderful.
4. People being mean to each other happens too often.
