Do your cats ever scare the crap out of you?

Miley just looooves to sneak up on me and scare me. One of her favorite spots is under the ottoman. She will hide under there and grab my foot when I walk by. Or I'll be sitting on the couch with my feet on the ottoman and as soon as I put them on the floor she will reach out and grab my toe! I've gotten used to that so it doesn't startle me too much anymore. Also I can be cleaning or digging through a drawer and she will sneak under the drawer or behind the tv stand or whatever and when I move around the corner or close the drawer she jumps out. About gives me a heart attack!

Yesterday I was doing laundry and went into my room to get the clothes out of my wicker hamper. There was just a little bit in the bottom of the basket and when I reached in, the "clothes" were furry and they moved! Omg. Lol, how is it they can anticipate your next move?

Oh no, I hope Figaro doesn't read this and get any ideas. ^_^ Right now he doesn't ever really bother doing any sneaking around; he's always bouncing around with the dogs or up on the couch in plain sight.

Only when they do the 'kitties of the corn' thing. I turn around to them staring intently at me.... freaks me out every time.

Cheshire cat used to scare me by hiding for 24+ hours at a time. I used to work myself into a state, convinced he must have gotten out of the house because there's no way 20+lbs of cat could be hiding anywhere. Then he would saunter out from wherever it was for dinner and I'd be so mad/relieved.

Io only scares/unnerves us during *that*. She does the 'kitty of the corn' face and yowls at the edge of the bed.

The only time Ritz scared me was entirely my fault: I didn't realize the hole in the screen was large enough for her to escape. Came home from work to see her looking at me from OUTSIDE on the balcony--three stories high. She couldn't figure how to get back in.
And yeah, not being able to find Ritz in a small one bedroom apartment would scare me.

Sophie does this when we put our hand on the back of the couch. If we move our fingers she will jump up and grab them(without claws). The first time she did this to bf he screamed and jumped up. Lol

Yes. Finn *zoooooom* pounces very fast when he decides he wants on a lap - he's so fast and quiet that it can surprise you. The only thing you hear is this little hummy purr sound that he makes the second he lands. lol

Yes, in the way that I think I've killed the cat. Blacky sleeps on my black computer chair sometimes... me flinging myself on it and thinking I've squished her to death? I've done that twice. If I wasn't skinny and didn't have fast reflexes, there would not have been positive outcomes...

And if you count the fact that she's brought earth worms in on her fur at least twice, and then I've gone to pet her and touched them... and those scared me when I had no idea what I was touching... then yes... definitely cats have scared me.

And Blaze... Blaze likes to viciously attacks sometimes. Afraid for my legs and arms and hands and feet... yup...
