I was clipping Miu's nails today. She's usually blase and docile about it. She'll be especially accepting of the front paws, only struggling a bit with the back ones. If she does, I'm usually able to just tell her stop and she does.
Today was different. She was annoyed when I started to do the back ones and was telling me to stop by sinking her teeth into my hand. I figured she's usually okay and I could still push her a bit since I had 2 more left. I checked the 2nd last one, she increased the pressure. I ignored the pain and went on to check the last one ...and boy did she let me have it. She further increased the pressure and I could almost hear my bones/tendons making this cracking noise. By that time, I was done and also it had finally occurred to me to just quit. I let her go, but SHE did not let go of my hand. Perhaps she was mad that I ignored her earlier warnings and was telling me off. I had to shake my hand before she finally let go.
After that, she just walked off to the mesh hamper she was playing with before and continued playing like nothing happened. She didn't even look at me as I walked by her to the bathroom to rinse my throbbing hand off.
I came back and she still ignored me. My hand feels a bit better, there's one part where she broke skin. Anyways, after a bit, she just got up and sauntered off without a care in the world.
. Sometimes, cats are so unpredictable. Maybe I just chose the wrong moment. She's usually sits in my lap docilely when I do it, even going limp and relaxed while she lazily gazes around. Anyways, I failed to acknowledge that she'll forever be the master and I'm the slave. Never defy your master or she'll put you in your place.
