I find cats have a very similar emotional range as humans. They feel all the same basic emotions as humans. Love. Hate. Jealousy. Happiness. Fear. Annoyance. And so forth.
Case in point. While I was feeding, and hanging out, with Moo Cat this morning, Mini Scaredy — Moo Cat’s arch-enemy — sat about 10 yards away from us the whole time. Staring at me with a hurt and woeful expression on her face. Like she’s thinking: “So!! I see that you’ve been feeding OTHER cats!!”
Mini Scaredy feels very possessive towards me. Doesn’t like to share me with the other cats. Ha ha.
