Andy can be a moody little cat. I scratched his neck and he put out his “Paw With Four Pointed Early Warnings You’d Better Stop It ~ NOW”!
Seems rubbing his ear today is a no-no, too!
Let’s take a closer look… Touchy! Touchy! The pointy warning tips are flexing in their sheaths.
Oh ! this eye ! always lovely ! amitiés
Yes, it gives me hints: “That’s Andy’s killer look! Better leave him alone just now!” Ha!
His Majesty is not in the mood! I love the photo where only one eye and one “horn” could be seen. Such a royal demeanor!
Yes, he lets me know in subtle ways when he’s tired of my attention!
Yea, by unsheathing The Vicious Claws of Doom.
Yeah, you quickly get the point~!
I should, right? Even though we don’t have vicious claws around here, but once a month we have to administer Revolution drops to the gang, and it takes 2 – 3 days to catch Pyshka and hold her in place for a couple of seconds. She is heavier than I and definitely much faster! So this week my manicurist will see scratched up hands.
That’s a problem here, too. They act like you are putting sulfuric acid on them!
The little imp got so mad at me that she disappeared for several hours! I thought I would have a heart attack looking for her; I feared that she managed to sneak outside when I was taking trash out. My husband came home, and she nonchalantly climbed from under the bed and walked to greet him.
LOL! I had an episode like that once when I couldn’t find Dougy to take him to the groomer’s. I took Andy, then returned home and looked all over the house for Dougy. I eventually found him hiding in one of the stacked carriers! I barely got him to the groomer’s in time for his spa day.
I’ve had cat disappearances twice in the past (not Pyshka, though), and I get totally frantic. Indoors cats do not have street survival skills, and I fear for their safety.
That’s exactly how I felt when Dougy got out almost a year ago! I even had a panicky feeling when Louie the ginger cat stayed out longer than I was used to, and he had lots of street cred before I got him at the shelter!
Exactly! And mine are strictly indoor, since they were rescued as babies. Nobody goes out.
He has extended the Paw of Doom! 🙂
And how! Andy has no compunctions about ravaging my hand if I ignore his body language.
He’s gonna tear you up!
He would, too, John! I learned years ago not to ignore Andy’s body language.
He feels he was being very gracious warming you before attacking
Actually, I appreciate the warning! Poor kitty needs his time to just be a cat, not a pet. Dougy is the opposite. He will pester me till I pay attention to him if he wants attention. He’s recently decided he likes being a lap cat, which is nice.
