My hands are decidely manky at the moment I look like I have some sort of weird skin condition. Can you guess who's responsible?
Not that cute itty bitty kitty? Who should be featuring on greetings cards and chocolate boxes surely not.
I've tried everything I can think of to impress upon her that throwing herself at me and biting as hard as she can while holding on with all her claws is not fun. She begs to differ. I don't know if this is because she's a feral kitten or she's just a little b******
I've tried stopping the game (bit tricky this when you didn't start it in the first place)
Putting her on the floor and shunning her.
Distracting her with toys
Making hissy spitty noises at her.
Holding her down by the scruff of her neck till she squeaks (it used to work for our cat Walter when we introduced pesky kittens into the household)
The latest is a squirty bottle of water. This at least has made a slight impression so I have had no fresh wounds for a day now. She bites gently and taps my fingers with claws in. Success? I don't know. She does it with one eye on the bottle and a look that says Mr Squirty won't always be here.
Petty revenge today. We took her to the vets for jabs.
She yowled and carried on all the way there. We warned the vet she can be a bit wild.
"Moi?" says Mimo gently patting the vet on the tip of her nose. "I'm just an ickle bitty chocolate box kitten"
