You know how cats can seem to sense who’s not a cat person? And then bug them?
My mom came over tonight. She hates cats. She’s learned to put up with my cats, but they make her nervous. Mom is standing next to me looking at the computer screen to make sure the updates I’ve made to her website are okay. I’m concentrating on the screen and then hear mom let out a bit of a yelp. I look up and Mishka has jumped up onto Mom’s shoulder! The look on her face? Hee! He was standing there sniffing her hair. Mom looks at me and says, “what happens if I stand up?” (She was stooped over looking at the computer screen.) I say, “you get cat scratches down your back. Trust me.” I manage to coax him off her shoulder without any scratching going on.
I can’t help it, but every time I think of the look on her face, I laugh.
