Makaton Monday ~ Cat

Bruiser loves animals to look at in books, on TV and even behind the fences at the local farms. Being up close though is something different all together.

I’ve previously blogged about his love of dogs, puppy’s to be precise. The small, cute and cuddly ones; nothing big, in your face or overly fussy. Well, he also likes Cats. A LOT!! Prioviding of course they play by his rules; nothing in your face or overly fussy! They bring out a different side to him we very rarely see. He interacts with it, like we do with each other. He uses them to interact with other people. They seem to have a huge calming effect on him. We don’t get meltdowns, he doesn’t get anxious. He smiles a lot!!

At his Auntie’s house at the weekend he played almost non stop with their cat. Chasing it around, talking to it, stroking it and cuddling up with it by the end of the day. I know I took him a little by surprise when I plonked the cat in his lap, but before he had chance to freak out he was already liking it. He even showed the cat how to sign ‘cat’ ๐Ÿ˜‰
