Is your cat guilty of hit and runs?

    Our siamese KiKi is a great cat who makes very few demands of us. She has one bad habit that annoys me. If she sees me headed to the kitchen she runs in there as fast as she can; often hitting me in the shins as she runs, no small thing considering KiKi weighs 18 lbs. and I have a neurological disorder that makes me unsteady on my feet. It doesn't matter if I filled the food dishes five minutes before; if she sees me headed that way she's there.

    Now our youngest feline family member Bug is doing the same thing, colliding with me in an effort to beat me to the kitchen. [​IMG]

    Anyone else have a hit and run cat?

    8 of them. the outside ones are worse, they crash into you and then lay on their backs so you can pet them while rubbing yoru shins.

    Yes, when I go downstairs to do laundry, whether I have a empty load or full load of clothes. The Siamese cat of mine has to stop and then you would trip over her!

    Now I have to make a "hiss" noise when I am going downstairs, her ears would get flat against her head and ran down as fast as she can to get away from me, the hissing owner!

    KC used to do hit and latches. She would fly down the hallway after you, wrap herself around your ankle, and mock attack your shoes or socks. [​IMG]

    My KiKi Bear does hit and runs on my head. She jumps onto my head to try and kiss me.

    No kitties in the house........but Buster does smack me in the head with his wing when he does a fly-by. He does it on purpose, usually when I am getting ready to go outside. He really thinks he is hot stuff if he can tag me twice - once on the way to the diningroom, which is past the front door and then back again to the livingroom.

    Buster is a wild caught Goffins Cockatoo who has lived with us since 2000.

    Glad to know I'm not alone.

    Ewe, you mentioned them stopping in front of you. Our two GSDs, Jax and Kane, are bad about that.

    I love my pets like children but sometimes they can be very frustrating.

    My original Imp does that when I'm headed for the bathroom. Then he watches to make sure I am doing everything right. [​IMG]
