Kissing cranky boys

UPDATE POSTED BELOW

Even though I can act very cranky sometimes, mommy knows dat I love her with all of my little kitty heart. Dat’s why she can’t stop smooching me or snorgling me. She hugs me and harasses me, all to get my attention. I usually play it cool, like “Ick! Cooties!” but then I prance off and clean myself and secretly hope she’ll give me more lovin’. Sometimes I stand around in her general vicinity, waiting to be picked up and squeezed. But then when I can’t see her, I gets scared and call out her name (“Wow-wow?”) until she lets me know dat she’s nearby.
Well, today she surprised me. I walked into her office this morning and pretended to ignore her as my way of saying “Good Morning,” just hoping dat she’d come over and give me love. And, of course, she did; she went to pick me up by the armpits (which is one way that she slings me over her shoulder, and I love dat) so I even picked my paws off the ground to help her. I was thinking, “Oh boy, I get to put my head on her shoulder again.”
But she tricked me! Instead of hugging me close, she gave me a big kiss on my nose! I opened my eyes in surprise. I’m not supposed to like kisses! I gave her a dirty glare and pushed my back feet against her tummy so that she couldn’t give me any more kisses on the nose! As much as she tried to pull me towards her, my back legs just wouldn’t budge and she eventually put me down on the floor.
Ugh, kisses. It’s okay if I get kisses on my head or on my cheeks cuz I can just pretend not to like them, but right on the nose? Someone’s gonna think I like girl cooties. Sheesh, mom.
Do any of you boy (or girl) cats have to put up with an overly affectionate human?
(Loaded question, I know!)
UPDATE: I have discovered another way to get mommy's attention. There is a baby gate in the kitchen doorway to keep the woofies from going to their favorite chew-on-the-wall spots but it keeps me from moving through the whole house unless I want to LEAP over the dumb thing. So in the mornings, while mommy's still sleeping, I bang on it while calling for her. It sounds like this ("Wow-wow" is the name I call for mommy): BAM BAM! Woo-wow!! BAM! WOW-WOW! woo? BAM BAM BAM! Wow-wow? WOW-WOW! BAM BAM BAM!

Oh, kisses - yuck! I can handle a cuddle or a snorgle, but the sure way for me to do the "heisman" (you know the straight arm, like the trophy - well that's what daddy calls it) is to try and kiss me!

My Mommie is always trying to kiss my face. I do not enjoy it. I do like to be picked up and held on my back like a little baby.

Our pet human kisses Nubi's nose when he is napping. ... she knows better than to do that to me! She can over do it with all the kissing and poose-talk.

Humans are so silly.

My Food Lady kisses my nose all of the time. I don't like being picked up but I think that nose kissies are OK, unless she does it too much!

Purrrrrrs, Willow

The Cat Realm said...

Yes, kisses. Ugly topic. Happens here too. The butler is even worse than the maid!!!! All over the face, and the neck - we TRY to keep our noses out of harms way.... but you know how it goes..... We accepted it as part of life. Mrs. OZ hates to be held. And guess what: they do it nevertheless! Darn humans...

Nice work on the banging to wake your mom up! Yes, the female has tried to make out with me many times. Sometimes I permit it a little, sometimes I don't, just to keep her on her toes. We can't let our humans get too comfortable, now can we?
