Allergic indeed! I know when people get the sniffles when I’m around. I can sense from my whiskers down to my toes. It’s something in the air. There is something about it, when your know others avoid you. A cat does not like to be avoided, we may avoid you, but it is never the other way around. So when you think you are doing a good job at keeping your head down and eyes averted that’s when I will be there. Rubbing along your leg, it is only one of things I will do if you think you can escape me.
