My partner recently brought home a new 4 month old female moggie.
I have given her time to settle in and she is really affectionate. There is one problem however.....When I attempt to pick her up she pushes her paws (with force) against my chest and turns her head as far away from mine as possible.........All of our cats have done it at some stage & we all know what it means.....PUT ME DOWN NOW!!!
My question is this: Is there any way that I can make my kitten enjoy being picked up and held close or is this just her personality that can't be changed? I don't want kitty to do anything she doesn't want to do, so if it means no cuddles then no cuddles it is.
