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.
The lil’ bite’s also just to remind you that he who owns you, the house and everything in it. Tee hee hee.
LOL! Yes, I try to respect that.
I know what this means.. ah lovely cats… Beautiful dear Doug, Thank you, Love, nia
The gentle paw followed by the bite. It is the kitty way! 🙂
I learned that the hard way!
Andy is letting you know who is Boss.
That’s funny because my cat sometimes shows the exact same behaviour 🙂 I definitely know when it is enough, when I need to let her alone 😀
I can tell Andy’s level of irritation, too, by how much pressure he uses when he bites or puts his paw down.
984 PAWS UP !!! 🙂 ♥♥
Ever tried stroking the paw then … softly, petting, not beating … My cat then withdraws her paw …
Yes, and Andy usually pulls his paw back, then puts it back on top on my finger! That’s the point where he bites. I can tell if he’s irritated, though, because he’ll bite harder or add claws to his reaction.
Andy has no problem letting me know how he feels!
This is so wonderful and sweet, Doug. Best buddies! ❤️
Andy lets me know where he stands on any attempt to “wuv” him!
