having or showing keen mental discernment and good judgment...
1. See an object; ie: a moody cat.
2. Approach said object with much timidity and trepidation...
and then get much, much, too close.
Jump away wildly, in fear of your life -
blinkingly violently (and rather adorably, I must say.)
We've seen something similar out of this cat before...
(You can relive the moment Here.)
Poor Nickle really is a sweetie; she's just touchy. :)
