I have one kitty that loves to sleep. Any time I go near my bed, she runs in the room.
She does NOT like my cell phone. I have it next to the bed and use it as an alarm clock. She bites it and tries to gnaw on corners.
This morning I picked up the phone to turn off the alarm. Sleepy kitty reached up with both paws and grabbed the phone. I thought I would play with her with the phone. I moved it and made her reach out more. Then I sleepily dropped the phone and her paws, with claws out, fell on my face.
Tonight I am thankful that I only got one scratch on my face. I really could have wound up with a lot more scratches. There are a lot more than just one claw on those two kitty paws!
And yes, I’ve learned my lesson . . no trying to out-muscle a kitty when I’m still half asleep!
