Hersh has become my protector
Its kind of cute but I don't want to encourage the behavior. Hersheys has claimed me as her own and doesn't want to share me with anyone. If we are laying in bed watching tv she will chase the other cats away from me. What I didn't like was that I was cuddling with my old man Tiger a different time and she jumped on the bed, came to me for pets and then proceeded to stare down Tiger then batted him on the head till he got up and left. She then took his spot and started to purr quite contently. Keep in mind that she is convinced that she is Tigers girlfriend but he normally doesn't give her the time of day.
She is becoming quite the stinker. Just when I think she has come completely out of her shell(its been over a year since we got her), she suprises me with a new quirky habit. The last one was scaling all of the bedroom furniture and knocking all of the pictures off of the dressers when she want to be fed. If body slamming them doesn't work she bats them off with her paws. I love her to death but at times I want to strangle her. Sigh. She is my silly sweet heart.
