Do cats and introverts share some common traits? Both possess a quiet strength. They can be quiet leaders of the pact. Both are selective with whom they show love and affection. Both have a coolness about them that can be mistaken for being aloof. Both have simple needs. They are quite happy to stay at home and curl up in a warm corner. Both can be indecisive – should I go out, should I stay in – weighing their pros and cons. Both have been described as loners…not wanting to follow a group. Engaging with others for a short time then moving on to be alone. Sound familiar to anyone?
