- Meow! Loudly!
- Raise whichever paw is closest to the canine offender
- Take a small step back, lifting the paw higher in the air
- Smackola! Right on the snout! (I sometimes pretend I'm going for his eyes, but I promise, I have never done it!) My parents would never let me do that, we're lovers, not haters!
- Resume snoozing, act as if nothing has happened
- Repeat, as necessary
I NEVER use my claws (that would just be rude!), it's more of a "Bap!" The D.O.G. exits, stage left, and I am left in peace. I think I was so cranky 'cause of Mommy leaving. Sometimes I actually think the D.O.G. is O.K. I think he wants to be pals with us felines - but most of the time I'm just not that "into" him!
