Self-tutoring about animal behaviour: the tutor makes an observation connected with a long-ago memory.
Many years ago I overheard someone discussing various animals’ behaviour as they would cross the highway.
“Cats, if they see a car coming, always turn around and run back the way they came,” they related.
This morning, from a window, I noticed a large cat crossing the road. Three-quarters across, it heard a “toot” from a slow-moving car.
The cat is very large, and so its reversal was dramatic. It easily made it back; the car’s driver was moving gently so as to give it time. The point is that the cat, only a few feet from the side it had wanted to go, turned back and re-crossed to get out of the car’s way. It happened just as the person had described, so many years ago.Jack of Oracle Tutoring by Jack and Diane, Campbell River, BC.
