My Personal Space

No, you may NOT touch me!

I’m gonna take a poll: how many of you like your personal space invaded?

I’m gonna vote a resounding NO, especially when the invader is TW. She’s been getting all touchy-feely. Suddenly she thinks she can take liberties with me. She even picked me up the other day! None of this meets with my approval. She might have even touched me funny, I’m not sure.

All this to take a selfie of her grubby hands pawing my feline body.


Look, she’s getting her germans all over me! Won’t someone make it stop?

Well, I like being handled, although I know not every cat does! But I think it is fun to be worshipped that way. I mean, if we kitties were icky, humans wouldn't want to touch us, right?

Truffles loves to be petted and kissed, but HATES being picked up!

She can come invade my purrsonal space, I'll even roll over for a belly rub.

Purrsonal space is impawtant. We have our human trained that WE will let her know when it is ok to touch us. Yes, you never know where humans have had their grubby hands.
MOL!

Best wishes Molly

CK, it's because we smell so good! If we stank like woofies, they wouldn't come near!! I DO like to have my belleh rubbed, though. It makes me go a bit dopey. Better than nip ..... well, maybe not!

Tamago said...

Oh no, space invader! But I can understand why TW wants to paw you. You are so irresistible :-)

None of my 15 mind me invading their space, but if another kitty gets to close- look out.

Brian said...

Kruse Kats said...

Those are adorable pictures. Don't you like someone scratching behind your ears? I think it's feels good.

Flynn said...

I have to admit I do like head scritches, and tummy rubs are even better.

Maxwell, Faraday and Allie said...

well the hands DO have some redeeming qualities. Like scritches. At OUR convenience.

Sometimes, Cats Herd You said...

Scritches are one thing, but picking up? No way, girlfriend! -Ashton

The Island Cats said...

Darling, I can see in that very first picture the HATRED flashing from your eyes. . . or, wait, maybe that's really just a lvoing, come-hither look. But in the second picture, the Woman has clearly crossed a boundary, and I can see the agony of distress and you calmly and peacefully our your window . . . .oh wait, maybe not. But it is in that third photo we can truly understand and feel the great misery that gentle hand is lovingly inflicting upon your sweet little headfurs as the horror, um, I mean the ecstasy of scritches finds expression in your terrified, wait I mean sleepy and satisfied posture.

Oh stop it already. My head's gonna 'splode and then no one will want to rest her sweet head on my tum.

meowmeowmans said...

Hmm. It may be time to open up a can of bitey, CK. Just sayin'.

The Indulged Furries said...

I hope you were able to make it go away!

Patty Woodland said...

So what happens when Sherpa just up and sits in my lap. Isn't that an invasion of MY personal space?

Clooney said...

CK, you are so funny, you crack us up? You meant to say you didn't put the bitey on TW? Interesting...

Katie Isabella said...

BEAUTIFULS pitcher of you CK! I'm afraid aI do allow invasion of my purrsonal space. I loves it.

Derby, Ducky said...

Put the bitey on her!

Marty the Manx said...

Well I am laying in Mom's lap now, I love being picked up and carried around, love to have my face stroked. Ralphie loves to have his face stroked and head scritched. He even lets Mom carry him around some and lies on her head at night. Sorry CK, we are a let down.

I love to be carried, but Pixie is like a wild monkey : she climbs on the human's shoulders and tries to escape ! She likes to be petted, but not hold ! Purrs

Kjelle Bus aka Charlie Rascal said...

Mom says that she is tired of all of us invading her personal space, especially when she is trying to sleep. We figure what is hers is ours even if it is just "space." probably how TW feels about your space. Ho, ho, ho, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
