Yes, I got into trouble—-again. It all started when Mom was trying to “train” me to go on the couch with her. I really don’t like doing that. However, I went up to her on the couch and let her pet me for a minute. Then, I walked away from her and had fun by going just out of her reach behind the lamp. To entice me to come to her, Mom wiggled her fingers at me. I thought she wanted to play. So, I pounced on her arm and dug my claws in!
Well, you would have thought that I committed murder. Cries of “Bad cat!” and, “How could you do this to me!” resounded through the air. So, I hid under the bed. I did not appreciate it when she told me that I could stay under it—-forever. However, after a few minutes went by, I figured that she’d calmed down. So, I came out from under the bed and gave her my best, “What’s the big deal here,” look as I jumped up on the windowsill. That was a bad idea.
She followed me and scruffed me, while pointing at two tiny claw marks on her arm. Then she made it very clear to me that I was never to lift a paw to her again! I wanted to say, “Hey lady, if I’d really wanted to claw you, you wouldn’t have an arm left!” I knew that was a bad idea, though, so I walked away. Then, I had to endure her glares for the rest of the day.
Things are almost back to normal now. Mom is speaking to me again. I’m glad she is, but I still don’t see why she got so upset! I mean we are talking about two tiny claw marks here. If any of you cats can explain her behavior to me, I’d really appreciate it. Thanks!
