The Small Human was only 3 when I was adopted and therefore the rules don’t apply to them.
If you pick me up I will send Hate Thoughts in your general direction and also might deploy TEETH if you ignore my Hate Thoughts.
Once you understand that, I will allow between 4-6 pets under my chin or on my back.
Every creature gets to make their own rules for touch. No one gets to touch me without my permission. No one gets to touch you without your permission. That includes Aunt Gertrude and Granny Sue. You can fist bump. You can shake hands. You can give hugs and kisses if you want to. You probably shouldn’t bite people since you are a human and not a cat.
