As usual, when I went upstairs to get ready for work this morning, the cat ran up ahead of me. She jumped up onto the ledge around the top of the stairs like usual and when I walked by I ran my hand over her back, petting her. Well, little Miss In-A-Snit turned around and grabbed my wrist in both claws and bit my hand!
I turned it around and grabbed the back of her neck, like a mother cat, which made her stop and I told her, "No bitting!" I let her go and she tried to swat me but I was too far away for her to reach without falling off the ledge. She jumped down and pounced! It was like a fake-out. She pounced towards me so hard that I heard the thump on the floor, then she ran into my office.
I shut the office door with her in there while I got ready. Fifteen minutes later when I was ready to leave I opened the door and let her out. Now little Miss Nice was all meowing and rubbing against me.
That's more like it!
(no cats were harmed in this story) :lol:
