Today, I caught a cat, which is a first for me. Releasing him was a simple matter thankfully, because he was so tame. All I had to do was to talk to him and pet him, then I just reached down and let him go. However, when I let the cat go it did the opposite of what I expected it to do; instead of running away it just stood there and continued to let me pet it. The cat even let me examine its paw to see if it had any broken bones, which it did not. So, the cat went through the experience unharmed and hopefully a little wiser.
