Have you ever witnessed a cat performing a trust fall? We’ve seen trust decline in dogs, and now we’re seeing it in cats.
Cats are naturally distrustful of humans and will never be as trusting as dogs. Despite the fact that we feed, shelter, play with, and attempt to pet them, they remain distant, autonomous, unaffectionate, and untrainable.
As a result, when a cat does trust you, it is a watershed event in cat ownership history.
Meet Didga, an extraordinary cat who enjoys performing trust falls with her person. Didga the cat can be seen repeatedly sliding back into her owner’s arms in a video released on Didga’s YouTube website Catmantoo.
With her father’s mild encouragement, she voluntarily executes “trust falls” for him. It’s incredible because this is entirely contrary to a cat’s nature.
Didga (cat) overcomes the temptation to twist to point her feet in the direction she is falling (cats always land on their feet remember) and “trusts” me to catch her as she falls straight back into my hands, according to Didga’s owner.
And if you’re having a rough day, here’s something to brighten your day right away. Watch Didga the cat fall backward into the arms of her father, whom she adores.
