stepping on cat

I would think after stepping on him so many times he would learn not to be behind me or too close in the kitchen. Nope. He's 19 but this started in 2001. Then I hear a MEOW. Then I say get out of my way. I'm surprised I haven't broken his paws or tail. It just doesn't sink. Oh mommy in kitchen stay out of her way or she might step on me.

He may have been doing this all this time but at 19 It's your turn to watch out for him. He may not see as well, move as fast, think so fast and since he is probable like an 80++ year old person, think of it that way. I am sure it upsets you to step on him but I bet you can adapt better than him at this point.

I have a 20 year old cat that is underfoot the MOMENT food is on the stove... I am constantly dodging his furry butt... I have just learned to expect it and do the "kitty shuffle" so as NOT to step on him and just nudge him away. fortunately he is half Siamese (unfortunate for nerves though) and lets me have at if I come withing 6 inches of stepping on him.. MAN can he make noise. you would think I actually have stepped on him!!

That's like blaming a kid for not getting out of Godzilla's way.

I've been doing the black cat shuffle for years.

Ditto here on 'The Cat shuffle' dance step routine! :p

LOL. I really, really want to see this "shuffle" by the trio: BB, marie and 10cats! I think I'll definitely need future lessons, since my unfortunate accident with G this week. My cats will turn 2 yrs in a few months, so I best be learning this now before they get lazy-ish.

OP: At least your cat's tail has been intact all these years, right?

It started because I couldn't see Cleo at night.

It's just walking without your feet leaving the floor. Shuffling through the house.

But the trio does it with style!

Specially great in the dark, if you have a Black cat like Jack... or if you have kittens rocketing around. Or stairs. or cats in general that insist on escorting yo everywhere. Not for the faint of heart..

I guess i'll have to learn the kitty shuffle and yes he is black. Yes at 19 I have to try to remember to watch out for him. I get caught up doing things in the kitchen so I'm not thinking then I hear MEOW. Sorry Geet's. I guess I look like Godzilla to my 10" cat

I have wood flooring and tile and must walk heavy because it even sounds loud to me. Both my cats run out of the way when they hear me coming.
