Rebel and I had a little discussion tonight. Why did we have a discussion? 

RebelI could no longer resist the temptation to pick her up and cuddle her so I went ahead and held her for a few seconds and kissed her and told her how much I loved her.... and then she gave me a rather disgusted look and spat in my face.

So we discussed the purpose of her being cute and fuzzy. It seems she did not understand that since she was (through no fault of her own) born a cat she was born for the soul purpose of being loved and cuddled and stroked and pampered and generally getting royal treatment - hence the reason God made her cute and fuzzy.

But she is not satisfied with her place in the world and insists that she is bristly and terrifying rather than cute and fuzzy. Nothing I say or do can convince her otherwise. I'm sorry to say we didn't make any headway. She said she will continue to spit at me if I pick her up and kiss her - and I told her I'll do my best but I can’t guarantee not to ever pick her up again BECAUSE she is so cute and fuzzy!!! Vicious cycle eh?

The Very Best Toy for Cats

"Of all the [cat] toys available, none is better designed than the owner himself. A large multipurpose plaything, its parts can be made to move in almost any direction. It comes completely assembled, and it makes a noise when you jump on it."
