DeborahGayhart, do you not see her daddy’s arms under the cat? I have a two year old and she does similar things to our kitten, Mr. Skipito. She doesn’t mean to hurt the kitten and believe it or not, my daughter and Skippy are the best of friends. Humiliatin from the make-up? That cat obviously thinks he looks pretty darn good… does he looks humiliated or scared?
Kathy you ar absolutly correct. If the cat was traumatized he would have the claws out.
The 80s style? My sister’s did similar things to me.
Small children and cats do not belong together in the same household! Look at poor kitty – in addition to the humiliation he has endured by being ‘made up’, she’s got him in a death grip around the neck!
There should be an escape cat door to the outside, assuming the outside is any safer
