The telephone repair man came to repair our phone, and my baby didn't like him at all! She hissed, arches her back and flatten her ears. She hid in the hallway and pounced his ankles as he walked to & fro from outside.
I picked her up to be cuddled and her little eyes were wide as she stared up at me...she started to purr from my cuddling her. I whispered in her ears and I could feel her little body relaxing.
Miss Kitty: "Man bad...he scarefied me mummy! Boots big...step hard and loud...not like daddy boots." Purr...purr...
Me: "It's ok...mummy's here...I love my baby!" I said as I nuzzled her neck and kissed her. "Let's go and get a nice treat...would you like that?"
Miss Kitty: "Mummy" ...Meow... then purring louder.
Note: As you can see, we do have some very good times together and she's not always Miss smarty pants...just a sweetie who needs Mummy!
