Mary has some pretty severe self confidence issues, but she is also quite a mystery. When I go to pick her up she will often stand her ground, hiss and give me the paw o'doom. She could just run away in most cases, but she doesn't unless she has all four feet on the ground and can quickly slip under the couch (which is also a self confidence issue, she often thinks she can't make it before I pick her off and eat her first)
She will play with me, or should I say the toy I am using to entice her to play, but not if her sisters come out and attack it. She will wrestle with her sisters, sometimes even instigating it, but often will be found sitting isolated, like in the basket photo above.
I wonder how many times I have to tell her I am not going to eat her before she figures it out.
Sarah is much more interested in the toy then she is afraid of me, well as long as my hand aren't going in a grabby type motion.. I even have her climbing up on top of myself and my husband in play
keep those grabby hands to yourself lady ~Sarah
Winifred has almost come around, she still starts when I try to touch her, but if I can do it when she isn't paying attention, she is okay with my patting her. She also purrs constantly.. it really is sweet but yet heartbreaking for me because I want her up in my neck purring away in my ear..
