Andy’s minding his own business…
…when I stick my hand under his paw.
You can’t tell but Andy added a little claw action to the moment.
Yeah, time to respect Andy’s space!
It is hard to resist Andy when he’s nearby! When I put my finger on top of a paw, he invariable pulls it out and places it on top of my finger. Initially, it’s just his soft little paw, digits flexing on top of my hand a warning of what’s to come if I don’t remove my hand…claws! Leave it in place, and his claws encircle a handy finger, slowly tightening. Andy doesn’t suffer boorish behavior lightly!
Sounds like Andy should be training humans. 🙂
Here is an article on another testy feline that left many scratches behind. And an actor to boot!
I recall many of those film and tv appearances, but didn’t realize it was just one kitty!
Happy Valentine’s Day to you and Andy, Doug! We had a total failure of Internet, phone and cellular here for almost 24 hrs yesterday. Just catching up. Must be one of those “balloons” hovering over my area. 🙂
LOL! Could be! Happy late Valentine’s to you, too.
I remember that old song, I think it was from the Byrds, “Please Mr. Spaceman”. 🙂
Happy Valentine’s Day to you both!
Meowy hugs and hearts to you a day late!
I don’t even pay attention to claw marks anymore. Beautiful photos!
Me either! Thanks!
You are very welcome, Doug.
He is such a beautiful boy.
Thank his Mommy and Daddy! LOL! Thanks! Andy sends you a meow.
Ouch! I’ve been clawed more than once.
My hands and legs are always in various stages of healing.
Such a sweet cat!
Actually, Andy is very sweet.
Claws are scary but I like the feel of the slowly enclosing pawpads! Cute Andy pics!
LOL! Yeah, when that happens, the question becomes one of can I remove my hand from danger before the tail starts whipping around and the ears fold back all the way!
My hand shows the scars and scabs of a human who never learns….
a handshake is a great gesture for a kitty… happy valentines day
As long as he isn’t on the verge of killing my hand, it is a sweet gesture!
