This has happened quite a few times…well all of the time whenever Luna (3 months old) and I play. I either chase her or sneak up to her and scare her in which she’ll runaway and climb up the door frame…she gets up there pretty high. She does that all the time whenever I chase after her or she’ll jump off the wall which is quite funny.

I just wanted to know what this behaviour is. What is she trying to say or do?

Also the other night I accidentally stepped on her leg and she hissed at me…she’s black so it’s pretty hard to see her in the dark. My husband also has stepped on her by mistake a few times, she also likes to attack our feet so that could be why it’s happened a few times. But the thing is that the times my husband has stepped on her she meows.

Why did she hiss at me?? :?

Thx

I believe it is quite normal to step on something that small - but only right after you get them. For when you walk at night, drag your feet a little so you can 'bump' into her instead of steping. I have a black&white kitty, and that's what I do. You may be stepping on kitty harder than Hubby is. Some people have faster reflexes to things like that.
Seems like your also playing a game with kitty. Kind of like the 'hunting' game some of us play. Hint: never look a cat in the eyes, lol...
I've had kitties who LOVED trying to climb the door.. Maybe its the challenge? I don't really know, can anyone tell me also?? lol

It is a mystery to watch our cats chasing something only they can see. Mine do it very often. They end up climbing very high too. I guess it is play and also some sort of exercise to hone their hunting instincts. :)
I also agree with Aonir about walking in the dark with a cat around. I also like to add that they do learn w/ time how to get out of harm's way! :D

Its funny I have a cat Twinkie and he is a real scaredy cat but when I accidentally step on his tail he usually never hisses at me but when my bf does it, he hisses. Im thinking maybe because my bf is twice my weight or b/c my bf always plays rough with him and tries to scare him too that he may feel a little bit more threatened. His style is just hissing to say he's hurting but my other cat always meows, rarely hisses :lol: Dont fret, cats have different ways of saying ouch :p
