We're currently fostering a young tortie (spayed, less than a year old), who was rescued from a hoarding situation by the local SPCA. She's a sweet girl who obviously wants to interact with humans, but doesn't quite know how. She was raised around humans, but didn't get a lot of attention because of all the other cats. She loves to play feather games and will roll around and purr when spoken to. We've been able to pet her a little on her back, which she seems to enjoy. We have noticed her tendency to swat at your hand with her paw to get your attention while playing. There's no aggression on her part, but her claws can get you! Any ideas on how to curb this behavior? We've tried ignoring it and directing her attention to a toy instead, but no luck so far. Thanks!
