Dougy just wanted me to pay attention to him. He put his paws up on my knee and had a bit too much claw out. It hurt! I yelled at him, something I don’t do to the kitty boys because I know they don’t like loud noises. Besides he didn’t know why I yelled at him. I hurt his feelings, something you can see in this photo. Awww! I felt bad. I scritched his ears and rubbed his head. I talked quietly to him and let him know he was a good kitty (mostly). He soon was back to his usual self. (He also got my attention!)
Those claws can hurt. My Joanie gets me a lot.
Indeed! I am cautiously hopeful that Dougy’s recent bahavior – softly patting my knee with claws fully retracted – is the result of getting religion about that claw thing!
Poor Dougy! Sometimes Nod takes a flying leap and lands on my back. It happens. I know how you feel. 🙂
When tghe kitty boys were kittens, they did that chase game thing where Andy would escape his brother by climbing up me! Those claws hurt! I was greatly relieved once he got the hint that that was unacceptable.
Poor kitty, got yelled at! He looks so upset! I am sure you apologized properly and made him feel better, Doug,
I had to. He did seem to learn that wasn’t acceptable, though, because since then he’s got my attnetion by patting my knee softly, no claws.
The Adorables are so sweet!
Actually, they are pretty good natured.
hog great that our pets can forgive us our small humaoid mistakes… eggs-cept Phenny he is a male-diva LOL
Andy and Dougy respond well to loving, fortunately, and get over upsets fairly easily.
