11Aug20: “Respect my authority!”


Andy has a way of letting me know he’s through with me. It starts with a paw on my hand. If I try to top his paw with my hand, he reasserts his desire to be left alone by putting his paw back on top of my hand. If I ignore his wishes, he’ll add a little bite to my hand. It has just enough pressure to let me know “I AM NOT KIDDING, BUB!” What can I say? Petting a kitty is very satisfying business if the kitty boy agrees to the attention.
