The Gentle Admonition

Juni, our rescue cat, a gentle creature by nature, was on the floor alongside me as I did my stretching exercises. My eyes were closed when I repositioned my arms and accidentally bumped Juni’s head. In response, she put a soft mouth on my hand—a gentle warning that she did not approve. She then chirped her disapproval—a verbal admonition. Next Juni gently licked my hand, reassuring me of her love. What a kind way of conveying and holding boundaries in a loving way.
