So I noticed this story today, which got me thinking about our cat, Jules.
This quote in particular spurred my curiosity:
Left-limbed animals, which tend to be right-hemisphere dominant, show stronger fear responses than right-limbed animals, which tend to be left-hemisphere dominant. Left-sided biases of aggression, reactivity to fear-inducing stimuli and vigilance behavior have also been noted in numerous species. Animals that are ambilateral tend to show poorer processing between the two hemispheres, which, in turn, can augment stress reactions.
Obviously, I wanted to confirm that my antisocial cat is a lefty. … Too bad she’s been laying down since I got home.
Maybe tomorrow …
