I was scratching my suddenly very itchy leg today, when Prince decided to help me.

:!:

If your cat offers help, decline it politely.

He still doesn't understand why my lukewarm show of gratitude. :-o8-O:yikes

Just imagine how cute it'd be if your cat decides to help you pull your glove off with the teeth as we usually do... :yikes

Ouch!! :)

I repeatedly ask Dagny to wash up the dishes while I'm at work to no avail. This would not be painful for me though.......

I guess Prince figured since I always help him scratch his itchy spots, he'd show the same good will...

I always scratch my strays' itchy ears. I sincerely hope they don't decide to return the favor!

Yeah, I had assistance putting my tights on this morning. Guy at work looked at my laddered legs and said "you have cats?".

LOL Coyote, your cat was just trying to straighten them.

Don't have them help with sewing, either!
(or knitting, crocheting, weaving, lace-making, etc.)

At least if I mess up a project, I can blame it on the cat's "help"! LOL

That must have been great fun. How did you stop the helper? Stopping cats from doing things, as I think most members know, is not the easiest thing in the world to do.

On top of that, I have a feeling that scratching has some sort of significance for cats. When I had Zenobi I wanted to encourage her to scratch at a sheet of plywood that a previous stray had used for that purpose. The method I tried was to demonstrate by scratching on it with my fingers. Zenobi, who was sitting on the open back stairs leading up to the sundeck, went crazy. When I put my hand out to her as I asked what was up, I was subjected to frantic lovebites. I ran indoors for five minutes.

So I'm wondering if Prince got some sort of message from your scratching.

Yes, indeed I was just joking about the "helping". I think Prince mistook my leg for a toy in that moment and, seeing as I scratched the toy, he did the same.

How do you interpret Zenobi's reaction?
