OMC! Did I *say* you could creep up on little cat feet and pet me without purrmission? You startled me, and Kitties do not like to be startled. Sometimes, it causes us to leap up, battle-ready and draw bloods. Lucky for you, I was feeling calm and tolerant this morning when you snapped this unflattering photo. Doubly lucky, because sometimes when you take unflattering photos, you cause us to leap up, battle-ready and . . . well, you know the rest.
