Are they in love?
Psychologists use the term 'mirroring' to describe something we do unconsciously when we're attracted to someone, which is that we copy their movements. When they cross their legs, fold their arms or cup their chin in their hand, so do we. Look at these two cats, Flad and Chimimi. Is this is an example of mirroring? Or are their washing routines exactly the same?!
Chimimi is an elegant cat. She poses and seems to choose places to sit that naturally make for a good photograph. She should be in Cat Vogue. I'm sure she knows that by sitting on the stepping stone, she is beautifully camouflaged against the pebbles.
As for Flad... Elegant? Not!
