The rain is here so I am spending more time in the house again, I was enjoying being out during the day to get away from the kitten. Now I have to put up with him looking at me and waiting for a chance to pounce. Luckily he is still small and leggy so he is easily beaten, there are also lots of places that I can go and he cannot.
I have also worked out that just before he is about to pounce he wiggles his back-end so I wait for him to start his wiggle and then I jump at him, crying as I do. It scares him to bits and he runs away.
If he sits still I let him look at me but I know he is just waiting for his moment so I do not relax when he is near. Luckily he gets shut in the living room and my housemate either sits with him or comes upstairs with me.
My housemate and I still cuddle and play at about 5am so I know I am still the boss and that I am loved so there is hope.
