I stepped on Stormy today. :( I'm surprised it hasn't happened until now, but usually I can dodge her when she gets in my way. She let out the most awful loud cry when I stepped (I think) on one of her paws. With shoes on too.
However, within a minute she was playing, running after a toy mouse. She doesn't look like she has a limp or anything, but it's hard to tell. I guess she wouldn't be running and playing if she was really hurting?
The only difference is that she won't let me walk up to her. Poor thing. I crawled up and petted her for awhile and told her it was an accident and she purred at me. I gave her a once over, which she did not appreciate, I think one of her feet is just a little tender.
I think she is scared of my feet now, afraid I will step on her again. :(
I guess I should just watch her for a while and wait for her to get unscared of being stepped on? I will be gone for awhile today but I think she should be okay. I just want to make sure nothing is wrong.

it happens :(
ive stepped on my cats b4 now, they seem to have a thing about trying to trip us up! they do let out the most horrible cry, one of my cats limped for a while, but she was ok after about 10 minutes. She is now back to trying her best to trip me up. i think it just depends on the cat for how long before they trust your feet again!

It has happened to me, too. We feel so terrible about it! If I step on or otherwise cause a cat pain, I always give them lots of kisses and loves. So far, no damage done. I hope it stays that way. They don't seem to learn that winding around our legs when we walk is not a good idea!

Hehe well I'm glad Stormy is back to normal.

I had stepped on Twinkie and Sugar before and boy do they hate it when I walk around with shoes. Twinkie is especially chicken and he was scared of my feet for a looong time but got back to normal. I haven't done it for a long time but don't worry, stuff like that happens especially when they like to be in our way of walking, as long as they are walking ok after a while, I'm sure they're fine and of course you have to do extra kisses and petting too and some canned food will only help matters between you 2 . :p

glad to hear your stormy is ok!!!

another mom to a stormy here!! :D


but they do know how to get underfoot and then act like we step on their toes on purpose!! :lol:
oh well they get over it pretty fast.

now winnie on the other hand, i can't remember her being stepped on but she has the biggest fear of feet, but it's just a fear of feet that have shoes on!
with bare feet she's ok.....she's a strange one!!

I squashed Jimmy's paw under a door once. You know how they sit right up to the door, trying to open it with their paw while you're trying to open it for them? That's how it happened.
He still gives that particular door a wide berth, but he hasn't applied it to any other doors. I think he thinks that door bit him! At least he doesn't hold it against me :)

Cats do have a way of yowling very loudly when we step on them, however, they seldom are in any kind of lasting pain. I have found that when ever I accidently step on any of my furkids and they scream out, that one of the best things to do for them is to give the one that was hurt, something special to eat. This does wonders when it comes to healing hurt feelings. :)
