The Psychic Cat
We have always known that Tres is something of a "special" cat. He's especially good at empathy; he can catch on to a person's feelings long before that person even knows the feelings exist. If I get up to go to the bathroom, or to go to the kitchen for a snack, Tres knows where I am going and leads me there. I always figured that he had some sort of sense for subconscious signals, so he could detect a full bladder or a hunger signal, and anticipate what I was going to do.
But yesterday evening, he went totally beyond that. He pressed the keys on the computer keyboard to shut the system down. There was no way he could have picked up subconscious vibes to tell him that pressing those three keys in that order would do something that would get him attention from his humans. But those three keys, in that order, were what he pressed.
I have always taken pride in not believing in "unscientific" phenomena. I have fun with horoscopes and such, but more as an entertaining look at coincidences than as anything that really has an effect on people's lives. Still, I wonder, why DID Tres hit those three keys, instead of any others?
