I went out several times with my friend, Xiulan , though she does not speak English and my Chinese is rusty. Those times were challenging to both of us but she was always amiable and patient and we tried hard to communicate with each other. When we came upon this cat, I tried to touch him, but he would not let me. Xiulan started to call out to him and she sounded like a real cat. He let her touch him. She is normally so serious that I was surprised to see this woman so playful and childlike. I am glad I got to see her having fun with this cat. I wish I could speak Chinese well enough, and spend more time with her so we could get to know each other better. I really enjoyed those times I spent with Xiulan.
