Well Jordan has been on a roll lately & 5 out of the last 6 days he has scratched me on my legs, or hands. Last night I lost my temper with him & yelled at him. Which may not seem like a big deal, but when I yell at him it scares Levi & then Levi wouldn't let me touch him the rest of the night. Most of the time when he scratches me it's an accident, but last night while I was clipping his claws he got mad & reached up & swated me across the face, claws extended. I've only got one small scratch to show for it, but I got mad. I even had a split second thought of, "maybe I should have him declawed.", but I would never do that to my baby. I'm very careful when clipping claws & have NEVER, over clipped. (I do keep a bottle of quick stop by my side just in case). I don't want him thinking that he can do that if he doesn't feel like having his claws clipped. I was so frustrated that when I went in the bathroom to take a shower, I colsed it all the way so they couldn't come in with me. I never do that. I'm not really mad at him anymore, but I just don't know what to do with him sometimes. I've never had a cat that would be aggresive towards me. I don't really have a question I just needed to vent a little.
