Mika: Hellooo!!!

Guest: Agh!

Kit: What's the matter?

Guest: Oh, nothing, nothing. Um ... your cat just jumped up and it kind of startled me.

Kit: Oh dear, are you uncomfortable with cats?

Guest: Er - yes, just a bit.

Mika: Wanna be friends? Let us sniff each other.

Kit: Mika honey, come over here and stop bothering the nice guest.

Mika: But is interestin. New person. Have to get acquainted!

Kit: Okay, I'm scooping you up.

Mika: You is distractin Mika! Put down!

Kit: Look, a catnip toy! Sorry, she's just kind of curious.

Mika: Ooh, catnip! Kickity kickity kick! Groovy.

Guest: That's okay. It's just ... well, cats move kind of suddenly, don't they? I mean, one minute they're on the other side of the room, and them boom, there they are on the arm of your - aaagh!

Mika: Hellooo! Mika is back. Let us resume our acquaintance.

Donalbain: Know how guest feels. Me want to be friends with guest.
 
Mika's brave - my Manny doesn't like strangers in the house ;-)

Have a lovely day! :-)
 
My cat panics and flees whenever anyone enters the house... regardless of whether he knows them.
 
You have let the poor darling out by now, haven't you? Oh, the prisoner, the prisonerrrr...! Woooooooe!

My daughter had four cats and a sign posted for all guests: "The cats live here. You don't. Deal."

But perhaps you're a nicer hostess....
 
Cute Overload on "Sniper Kitty". Cute!
 
I think if I didn't accommodate my guests' fear of cats, I'd have no right to hope that any hosts might work around my deep fear of dogs. People can't help having phobias, and the way I see it, if you invite someone to your house, you have a responsibility to see that they're comfortable there. I mean, I live there and the guests don't, but I don't see that as giving me the right to scare them.

But yes, I only shut her in the kitchen for five or ten minutes.

Wait, you mean you don't invite people over expressly so you can scare them?

Right, maybe that's just me...
