Ok this is what happened.... Found out st the last minute the night before that my grandson was graduating the next morning. Regular routine for the next day was kaputt! Kitty did not get her 30 to 40 min morning walk and our morning playtime 25 to 30 mins also didn't happen as I needed to get going to graduation. I was gone for 4 hours. Which I have been before but made sure I get at least her walk in, before I leave. But today NO TIME. When I arrive home 4 hours later Kitty is in her bed and did not come out. usually the minute I get home she will jump out of her bed, not always will she come down to greet me but will watch me from her upper landing and most times talk to me. Today I was being ignored. So I proceeded to change clothes, Kitty has a favorite place in my walk in closet that she likes to climb up to. Behind a rack of clothing it's dark and she enjoys sitting behind there. Sometimes she takes a short snooze. My closet is off limits it has always had doors closed so Kitty can't get in unless I open it up. Well today, kitty comes in and sits down staring in the direction of the rack where she likes to hide out. Then kitty stretches to the spot where she usually jumps up to get to that favorite spot. And holds the pose. So I decided to separate my clothes and lift her up. Well to my astonishment Kitty flipped..... She immediately turned around starting hissing, showing her teeth and all nails were out on front paws, which were trying to get to me and scratch me. I was SHOCKED, and scared me! I left her in the closet she eventually came out on her own. I ignored her and would not have eye contact with her for about an hour. I gave her her space and went about my business. It has taken about 3 hours for her to come around, not 100 %. Is this Really because I was gone? Just Attitude ? Has anyone else had this happen? This happened 6 hours ago she has played with me but still somewhat reserved. Could this really be angry because I was gone and she didn't get her daily walk? Would love to hear from you all!
