As you may have gathered over the last few hundred posts, both Julie and myself enjoy the company of animals. We've visited any number of zoological parks and sat and watched wildlife in woodlands and the like. Mostly though, we will make a fuss of almost any four-legged mammalian creature that passes. Julie specialises in cats, while I prefer the company of dogs - and we both like hedgehogs.
However, not all animals are responsive.
Obviously, you need to approach any unfamiliar animal with caution and allow them time to get used to you. Julie, however, seems to find that many of the animals we tend to meet will ignore her for some reason or another. I'm sure it's just coincidence or a case of being a little too eager, but Julie has another explanation.
