An old man has really bonded with their family cat since his grand daughter left for college. “When I left for college my gramp and my cat bonded. Now they’re inseparable and she tries to sit next to him at dinner,” the grand daughter wrote via reddit.

“He definitely ended up loving that cat more than he planned and the two of them sit in his leather chair at night and watch the news.”

Flip is the first cat we adopted when we moved to this area. He is a gentleman with a heart that is as sweet as pie. Whenever I call his name, he responds in elation. He loves my attention and often stands by my feet or with his paws on my legs, looking up at me, waiting for me to pet him.

Flip never had any issue with me, but he was a little afraid of my husband when he moved in. In fact, he was so timid with men that even a slight movement from my hubby could startle him.

Why are some cats so afraid of men?

  1. The way men talk – Cats like many other animals such as dogs, love a high-pitched human voice or “baby talk”. In fact, it is referred to as a Minnie Mouse voice at many animal shelters where people find that speaking in a soft, gentle, “puss puss” voice can relax an animal and let down the guard even for a disgruntled, distrusting cat. Cats communicate with each other in their high-pitched meows because their hearing is tuned to a higher range. They only start growling when they feel unease and the need for self-defense. Naturally, men speak in a deeper, lower, and more stern tone that is sometimes equated with growls by many shy cats. My husband failed miserably when he attempted to raise his tone and only found himself talking like a pirate, frightening the cat further away from him.
