I live in a hotel/apartment complex (hotel in front apartment buildings in back) and there are some strays around here that i have finally started feeding and watering, well one of them was outside my door where the food is and i was petting him. There is little kids here that try to take care of them too and one of the little girls was up here petting the kitty and brought a carpeted kitty pad to my landing for them to lay on. well she wanted to see my little kitty squishy. so since she hasn't been outside at all I was holding her in the doorway so the girl could see her and Squishy caught a glimpse of the other cat. She got upset, I put her down and washed my hands thinking that it was cause she could smell the other cat on me. I picked her back up and cuddled her like a baby and tried talking to her and telling her i loved her, she started growling, hissing, and smacking me in the face. Her eyes were squinted and ears laid back.. She didnt try to get down or anything. I held her for about 10 minutes petting her and loving on her, put her down and left her alone for about 15 and she was fine.... This is the first time she has gotten totally ticked off at me. It was extremely funny really, i couldnt help but to laugh at her... I didnt let her see me laugh of course she would have prolly gotten more mad.. It was quite obvious tho she didnt like the other cat OR she just dont like meowmy petting another kitty... Sorry for her but we are eventually getting another kitten. She cant stay mad forever is all i can tell her she will just have to get use to another one cause i really want to rescue one of the outdoor kittys that are running around here. It going to be interesting to say the least.... Didnt know jealousy could be so bad.
