Older kitties are apparently not as alert as younger ones are. As years went by, mean kitty let her guard down around Mr. Panda. This is clearly evidenced by Mr. Panda being finally allowed to touch her.
Who would have thought that the well-behaved kitty which never jumped on the table when I or my parents were near would actually be such a busybody? Normally she would not bother us while eating, she would just sit next
