I am so mad at my cat right now.

Occasionally he gets full of beans and acts like we're chasing him around the house, even if we don't know it. Today, apparently that wasn't enough for him. There I was, minding my own business, doing my WiiFit, when I feel the cat jump up and drag his paws down my leg. Thankfully, his claws were in. But I gave in and chased him into the bedroom, where I jumped on the bed. Mecrutio then gave me the evil eye and jumped up. I was laying on my tummy, so he landed on my shoulder. With all of his claws and teeth out in full force.

The next few minutes are a little hazy, but I'm sure Jay heard a stream of expletives, and then more crashing around as I tackled the cat, who then had the audacity to hiss at me. Hiss! This cat has hissed maybe 5 times in his life. More expletives. Somehow I got the cat in a chokehold and dragged him to the kitchen sink, fighting and yelling the whole way. I doused his face with water and threw him on the ground. He ran back in the bedroom and I slammed the door after him. Then I stormed out to show Jay the carnage.

This little sweetiekins:

gave me this:

It hurts a lot more than the pictures make look like it should, I promise you.

Eventually the cat and I made up, just because I happen to know that Mecrutio is certainly one to hold a grudge. So I approached him slowly with my hands out, speaking softly, saying things like "hey buddy - truce?" When he let me pet him, I knew tonight would bring kitty cuddles instead of kitty surprises in my shoe or something.

But my shoulder still hurts like a monkey funker.

ouch...did he want playtime or pain-time?

I think he started out wanting playtime, and changed his mind when I wouldn't give it to him.

Yee-owch! I'm sorry that happened to you, but glad you two made up.
