hi, well, i have a calico cat named snickers. she is almost 2 years old now, but my problem is that she ALWAYS growls. Whenever anybody picks her up she will lay in your hands, growl, and wag her tail. if i come over and sit on the same couch that she sits on she will start growling. after you hold her long enough she will turn "possessed" and she starts clawing and hissing. Also when i pick her up she usually hisses. sometimes it is just one, other times it can be three or four in a row. all my friends are afraid to hold her and i am the only one that does. How can I make my cat to be nicer?
