    Well... I was about 10 feet away, with a zoom lens, so I dont think I was quite as close as you think. In any case, you are quite right on the nervy/grumpy/lashout approach - for the last while, she has regular trips in the car in the cat carrier, and she *hates* it. She associates me with the evil car monster so treats me with the utmost of suspicion at all times*

    *probably not a bad idea

    Heh. We inherited a cat once who was pretty much unvetted (my parents take a Darwinian approach to pet care) so she had never been in a cat carrier or even a car for that matter when we got her. Noah tried putting her into a carrier one time, and only one time. The lacerations he got on his arms all the way up to his shirtsleeves discouraged him from repeating the attempt. It was much easier to lure her into the car with some food and then drive quickly to wherever we were going, with her panting in the floorboards.

    She kicked my ass so bad I'm not sure it even qualifies as an attempt. I picked her up just fine, pet her some, then moved to put her in...her face was a good foot from the door when she realized what was up. Over the next several minutes, the only time I got her in the crate at all, I grabbed the back of her neck in my left hand, her back legs in my right hand and stuffed them in...she promptly sank her front leg claws into my right arm and pulled herself out of my grip, and the carrier. She then twisted around and attacked my left arm with fangs and all four paws. She had a ninja-like sense of leverage and balance, of lightning strikes and strength power moves...it was uncanny.

    Except that time I took her in the truck, and she crawled up into the back window on top of the seat. She forced herself behind my head, then got claustrophobic or something, freaked, and did her Scrambling Claw Frenzy of Death to get out. Nearly killed us both, the biyatch.

    *sniff* I miss her... Sylvia's just not the same. (I'm sure after Sylvia's gone we'll be saying the same thing about her in relation to the next cat.)

    She sounds great. Like a crazy windmill of death.

    I am surprised it doesn't happen more often; a cat realising it has more than enough weaponry to outgun us...

    That's a great cat shot. And I do believe the conservative term for your peppers is "excited". Well, they ARE hot, right...LOL
