Daisy is our 6yr. old female cat. We got her when she was approx. 3 months old. As a kitten she showed pretty normal behaviors. As she got older, she just became...ummm...weird? LOL...She will not allow anyone who does not live in the house to touch her. She will bat at people and hiss, but these people aren't strangers to her, most are relatives she has know forever. She will accept food from them and then growl and bat at them with her paws. She doesn't seem frightened by anyone because she will not run and hide, but rather sit right in the middle of a group of family or friends and stare, wait until someone comes near her and then start batting and hissing...She HATES our other cats with a passion! But she doesn't seem to mind the dogs...She is always startled by the littlest sound or motion and ready to attack if she hears something. She is affectionate only when SHE wants to be, which is rare. She will jump up on your lap to be pet. She allows this for a few minutes, then will suddenly start to bite your fingers(not really hard, but very unexpectedly)......I just accept that that is her personality however strange it may be(my kids call her evil cat..lol).......Anyone out there ever deal with this kind of behavior before?
