how to approach a cat.

With cats, I usually put my closed hand, first face down, partially open, lower than their head, and just far enough away where they have to reach a little, maybe take a step forward, but close enough to smell.

Then I slowly turn my half closed/half open first to the other side. I let them sniff, lick, whatever.

Then I go sideways and near the cheek. I wait to see if they rub. If they do, I’m pretty much in the clear.
