Is it possible for cats to "mind meld" like Vulcans?

Posted Monday, June 23, 2008, at 6:13 PM

Kit Kat is on the right and Cooper on the left.
It is the strangest thing, but ever since Cooper got sick, one of my other favorites started acting like him. Kit Kat would never think of chasing birds because he injured his hip somehow several years ago, yet now he sits under the bird feeder like Cooper did, even while Cooper was still at the vet and before he passed.

He could never jump like the master, but he sits there anyway and we have even seen him trying to get on the patio table to get to another bird feeder, just like someone else.

Now he is chasing one of our inside cats, again like Cooper and stalking butterflies in the grass. Kit Kat was always closer to me than anyone else, but he now stays with me longer. Not just on my lap but in a chair next to me. Even Deb asked today, "What is Kit Kat doing up there?"

Except for the "Vulcan mind-meld", I am stumped.

Kit Kat lost his best friend. Now you are his substitute. Animals are very perceptive, no matter what people think. I have a story about my Grandfather and a Horse at the Cornell Experimental farm, back in the 30's, I'll tell you sometime.

Nice spam site Sharu, would be nice if you had relevant content on the site too. Oh and the pictures would work on with RSS feeds.

Did Cooper have a weird upper lip thing? Kinda puffy? or were they normal looking? Because I swear Cooper looks exactly like a cat we had about 2 years ago.

He did not have any unique look to his lips but he loved to rub his chin on ours when we were holding him. Good thing we don't share common diseases or we would all be sick.

Would it not be great to truly understand how intelligent and perceptive animals are? I know they are communicating in some fashion, but to actually understand that communication would probably teach us something fabulous.
