The little girl came to play with patches. Patches is scared of her so I go to make sure she is calm. The little girl sees that patches is scared of her and keeps running. I guess she gets upset and she makes this oud roar to scare patches. I had to let her know if she does not listen she will have to leave. i said patches is afraid of you. She is moving to be alone. so now I feel better she is playing with toys alone. It's nice now. I gave her a yogurt treat.

You did a great job in teaching her how to be around pets. A good lesson for her.

Who knows? Maybe the kid didn't understand or maybe she has behavioral problems. Personally, I wouldn't let some strange child play with one of my pets for fear of the liability issues. Cats can be unpredictable especially with young children who aren't used to living with them and when the cat isn't used to living with a young child. My sister's kids and other close friends' children are welcome to play with the 2 cats who will stay out in the open when we have guests over. They are calm and confident cats. One wouldn't care about being smothered or having his tail pulled. The other is my old man cat who would tolerate a lot of manhandling and then would just walk away when he had enough. The other 3 hide when company comes over and I'd never force them out. But people that I don't really know? Nope. Stay away from my pets.

I would not allow anyone to pull on patches tail either. They are only allowed to rub her head. she is so sweet the little thing will ease up to you fr that sweet rub. anyone tugging in any way would not be around my cat let alone in my home. So I guess I am good with her playing with patches. she was trying to toss a ball at her and her toys. I said no only rub her. But sh e had to leave because she does not listen well. I am not up for that.

Kids are only cruel if you let them be that way.

Children sometimes see animals as a toy with no emotion at all. I have always had a pet in my home even before I had my son. So when he was growing up I taught him how to treat our pets well. He was never cruel to any of them and he treated them like his siblings.
