Daily Photo Reprise: I’ll Give You Three Seconds to Get Your Paw Off of Me…2012

two black cats
Get your filthy paw off of me.

“I’ll give you three seconds to get your filthy paw off of me.”

“Oh, come on, little brother, I don’t mean anything by it. Ha, ha, ha.”


“You’re so touchy, you need to chill, lil’ bubba.”


“So what are you going to do to me little guy? You can’t take me down…”

A wrestling match ensues

“You keep your dirty paws off me!”

“You’re cute when you’re mad!”

“Look out you big showoff! I’m taking you down!”

It didn’t turn out well for JB.

A few other posts showing the boys at their stuff: Two Cats Wrestling. And for more elucidation into what I think my cats are thinking when I see they are conversing with each other, read through the Cat Conversations and the most fun of all, a video entitled “Brotherly Love”

  • so you were a real estate agent in a former life. . . .

    • No, a writer trying to think of the best word for the situation, and settling for the first one that comes to mind!

  • “Published on April 12, 2013 in black cats, cat conversations, cat photographs, daily photo, giuseppe, jelly bean.”

    Hi Bernadette,
    I might suggest another category, since this undoubtedly recurs: provocation.

    We saw it coming from the first frame! Sometimes I wish humans could scrap the way cats do.

    • Meg, that’s a great idea! I drew up initial categories, but most of them arose organically out of what my cats do. I go back though posts to find similar incidents–and then try to figure what the heck to call it! All the ones of the black cats in the bathroom are called “bathroom”, how imaginative…
