What to do?

I need some advice....as I'm sure most of you have figured out, I'm a real push-over and am pretty easy going. I mean, don't get me wrong, I'm TOUGH but I'm easy going until pushed to a point. I put up with a lot of crap from the young ones and let the people do anything they want to me.

So I have a dilema... What on earth do I do with Kaze? I mean, I've never really loved the girl. Sure she's fun to chase around and wrestle with but I'm not into snuggling with her or doing any mutual grooming. If she comes up to snuggle I'll wait until I'm completely awake and then leave.

The problem is in the way she greets me. She whacks me upside the head! Always! She comes up to me, whacks me on the head, then walks away. I know its rude, and its not like I enjoy it but I don't want to be mean to her. I'm much bigger than she is and I don't want to hurt her...so I just squeeze my eyes shut and ignore it.

Should I keep ignoring her? Should I throw her to the ground? What should I do my friends? I'm just about the friendliest cat around, so why is she so weird?

Oh I would hate that. I would have to swat back sometimes. A love pat is a love pat but a swat is a swat. You need to know which it is! Then swat or pat back...

Chase, that is a delima. Everyone here gives swats, but thats because they are in your napping spot.i finks you should do like Gemini said, try and figure out if it is a love pat or a swt. Then take action as needed.-Pounce

Hmmmm. Well, Kaze is still pretty young. I used to swat Pixie all the time when I was younger. Maybe when she gets a little older, she will stop. But, I think she only does it because she loves ya!

Bubbles here - Well, when the Little Terror lived with us he would constantly pounce me. I did not want to pounce him back since I'm a wild gladiator cat and I could snap his neck in an instant. He was too tiny and I did not want to hurt him. - So I just gave my Mom sad looks as if to say "Mom how can you allow this to happen? Look what he is doing to me and see how nice I'm being? I also gave a pitiful little meow every time he jumped me" Well, my plan worked! Mom felt sorry for me and now the little terror lives with Merlin and drives him crazy! He, he.

I like your plan best Bubbles! But since the Woman is so in love with the wite rat I'm not sure I could ship her off that easily...

Oh, and its a swat, not a love pat. She walks up to me, flattens her ears, and thwacks me. Then runs away. I'm pretty sure its not affection but I do play with her so maybe its a request to play?

Purrsonally I would just whack her back!

Grr, Midnight & Cocoa said...

I whap Cocoa when I feel like it, but not all the time. Usually I'd rather just keep to myself, so I asked the Lady what she thought. She said that all the elementary school aged little humans whap each other with stuff all the time to show that they like each other. If you wait a while, maybe she'll grow out of it. If not, you're gonna hafta be tough and whap her a good one.

I'm pretty young, so I'm not really sure, but I flatten my ears when I feel threatened or I want to dominate. I think Kaze is trying to take over your alpha spot, so I would definetly swat her back! Tara

The Meezers said...

ya know what? We agree wif Derby. We would swat her. Maybe she's testing you to see if you would fight back, and if you do, maybe she would not do it anymore.

Lux said...

Keep us posted on this situation - we may have to schedule an intervention!

Junior said...

I have no idea what to tell you! I would probably end up swatting her back...and then be in trouble.
