Re: What Does this Behaviour Mean?
oh, this is simple, my lil gal does this all the time when she feels Ive ignored her when she wants to play. Her final resort is to act as cute as possible to lure me over to cuddle her tummy (cuddling and playfighting aren't that far off after all) and when I do, she rushes over to her favorite pouncing spot on the bed expecting/demanding a game. If I still dont play, she may attack my leg or something (no claws), because if I was to react as she expects, as a kitten, I'd start chasing her for that. She's only trying to provoke you into a game, first politely then more physically. I wouldnt let her use the hands as toys though, they should be for cuddling and toy mice etc for biting and kicking. If she learns that the hands are sometimes ok to bite, she wont understand that sometimes they're not.
Edit: I find a better way to show you wont play is to yawn very visibly. My gal seems to get that the chances of a game are slim if Im tired. I dont know if Im imagining that it works but it seems feasible that thats body language she could understand.
