Have you ever had a cat who, when you pulled your hand away from a petting session or walked away from a petting session, smacked at you? It seems like most of the Little Guy kittens do that. (Little Guy was Katie and Mystie's littermate, who we were never able to trap, but we got her six kittens back in 2001.).
This afternoon, Sammy smacked out at my hand and got his claw stuck in the palm of my left hand. It was in there deep, he couldn't just pull it out and I couldn't pull away. I had to hold him still and extricate myself.
Guess who got his claws trimmed this afternoon?
