Now I know some cats don't approve of biting the hand that feeds (and mum would like it known she never bites us) but I had really had enough.
Everything started companionably enough. Mum watching TV, me playing with my Pokey Paw box and then settling down for a happy snuggle by hjer side. But what was she watching? A programme about dogs?! And she was liking it.
She kept saying, "Look at that cute puppy. How gorgeous is that dog?!" On and on so I just grabbed her arm and bit it. Not hard of course. I was going for the gentle rebuke. I think she was more surprised than anything else.
"Why aren't you watching a programme about cats?" I demanded to know.
"They didn't make one" she seemed to think that settled it.
She considered this.
"If you look at those dogs they do lots of stuff - they protect people and they fetch things and they follow instructions. Cats not so much"
I drew myself up. "When you look this good you do not do, you are. I would make a TV programme that would be us gorgeous cats all day long."
Mum thought fast and I think redeemed herself.
"But then no-one would go to work as we would all be watching it and then no-one would be making the kitty food and the toys and warm cushions and all the things cats love."
Good answer so we are back on good terms and I let her finish watching the dogs.

I think she deserved that bite - MOL!
MOL! However, one should never bite the pawrents unless it's a love bite.
Oh, I go a bit further: anytime my Mom watches Cats 101 on Animal Planet channel, I stand in front of the screen and block her view of any breed except us Tonks, which I seem to approve of. Can't get her thinking about any other breed being quite so wonderful! MOL
MOL! MOL! MOL! Your mamma sounds like quite the quick thinker to explain her way out of that one! But you could'a just stuck your rear in her face or something.
