How To Approach

An open hand, palm up, no sudden moves,

Show no fear,

Eyes cast down, head bowed and a gentle aspect

Disarming initial fears with a universal gesture

That says “I am no threat”.

A hushed and gentle voice

Offering low and calming assurances

Conveying intention by tone alone.

Always alert for signs of mistrust,

Signs that mark aggression.

Watch especially the ears and tail.

Approach with utmost caution

In slow and measured steps.

Allow for retreat, a graceful exit.

Never assume this will work

In all cases.
