Sometimes cats are associated with having hot tempers, but each and every one of their personalities are different. It may be a scratch, a bite, a slap or even some hissing when they are not in the mood to be messed with. They may be in some sort of physical pain or they may just be agitated for other reasons to provoke these type of reactions. In this case, it is the complete opposite! This guy shows his very reasonable personality by simply asking his dog friend to stop pawing at his face. Poor dog, he really wanted to play!
If they are not in the mood, it’s best to just let them be!
