I find remarks like, 'Look at your beautiful soft fluffy thighs,' far too personal.
Cats are not toys for the amusement of humans.
Now if it was more like, 'What is your opinion, Sasha,' on a piece of news we have just heard, that would be respectful.
Even a remark about the intelligent expression in my eyes would be offensive. Of course I have an intelligent expression!!! Why is that not just assumed?
Humans have a lot to learn. Animals are expected to learn how to communicate with humans, but humans seem to expect to get away with not learning our languages. Perhaps they aren't smart enough?
Mostly humans just want to train you so you will obey their orders. They aren't interested in your opinion about anything.
