Mommy You Should Know Better

No, I do not WANT you to touch me. Mommy, My long pretty furs are not for your fingers to run through. Every day I jump up on your bed so that you can admire me and talk sweet talk to me. I do NOT jump up here so that you will reach out and touch me. Every day I have to jump away after you try to pet me. When will you learn?

Mommy: Sophie, Honey, honestly I forget. I've never had a cat with such floofy fur before nor a cat who didn't want to be touched. I want to honor you and make you feel comfortable, but I can't help it. I think that maybe today will be the day you'll let me caress you. I will try much harder to let you be.

Sophie: That would be much better for me. I like it when you play with me, when you give me yummy treats, clean out the dirty litter box and feed me that stinky stuff. I just don't want you to touch me. I just want my kitty sister and brothers to groom me. I trust them and they know how to clean me just the way I like.

Mommy: Well, if you ever want me to scritch or scratch I'll be here waiting. I just want so much to pet your floofiness.

Sophie: I know Mommy. My furs are quite beautiful. I take very good care of them. Who knows someday maybe...

Mommy: At least I have hope, You Silly Girl.
