It said in the newspaper that cats do not really like being stroked. Someone has tested a lot of cats while they are being patted and come to the definite conclusion that cats get stressed when stroked.
How do you feel? Lynettea didn't pat me all day after she read that. I wondered what was going on. Maybe I had been really naughty? I started to try to attract her attention by leaping into the sink and share her food (she is mean with it) and she tried to bark at me to frighten me.
We we both got pretty tired with all this different activity and before she went to bed, late as usual, I leaped onto her lap so she could give me a massage and brush. She kept wondering if she should touch me, as she thought I would be stressed and she is worried about that (she says), but I kept pawing at the brush on the table until she gave in.
