Lemur is the sassiest cat I know. She saunters around like queen of all things. She loves to rub your leg and beg for attention. Almost 100% of the time, at some point during your petting session, she has had enough and without any warning either slashes you or takes a mighty bite. There's no "dealing" with her either. She WILL NOT back down. It's a terrible thing when you're afraid of your own cat! Actually, that's part of the problem. She's my husbands cat. She totally loves him. As a matter of fact, she thinks she owns him. Far be it from me to disagree.
