    I noticed some people posting short videos. I tried this without success. I tried a simple copy and paste. Nothing happened. The 'upload file' had no video file extensions.allowed, only picture or text formats. I downloaded a program that could reduce video file size. The format I chose was mp4. The file came out as m4v extension but under the stated file size limit. I don't know what I'm doing.

    Do you mean a video that you made? Upload it to Youtube then link it here.

    I did make it myself. I'll try. I've never uploaded anything to YouTube. Thanks, Smarty Pants.

    It's fairly simple to upload to Youtube, even I could do it. (Of course my single attempt at being a Youtube "star" was nipped in the bud, so youtube can place their content where the sun don't shine.)

    The video is here. Video Removed
    I'm wondering if people will misunderstand it. Amber was an odd cat. She only had a somewhat normal relationship with Pat.
    With me she wanted to play this way. I could pet her if she was facing away from me and could pretend it wasn't me. If I spoke to her, though, she would turn around and hiss at me. If I tried to pet her face to face she would hiss and bat at me. Like I said - an odd cat.
    When I would come into Pat's apartment Amber would run up and sit close to me, ready to play in her strange way.

    OK, I'm no cat expert, but the growling seems to be a "tell" that Amber wants you to get lost. :D And I must have missed part of the story because I have no idea who Pat is.

    I trust your take. I'll remove it. You'd have to have known the cat. I can see how some might misunderstand.

    Pat was my friend, since passed away. We all loved the cat and would not have abused her. Amber treated Pat's sisters the same way as me, hissing at them if they tried to pet her. They're cat lovers and they think the video is funny.

    Oh good heavens; you didn't need to take the video down. Like I said, I'm no cat expert but I excel in wise-assery. :p

    Sorry about your friend. I'm sure you didn't abuse the cat; she looks well cared for. Animals are like people; they have their own personalities.

    Cats are adorable little sociopaths, in some ways. They might love you one moment, but if they're in a bad mood, they'll lash out at whoever is convenient. They won't necessarily do that physically, but they're not overly concerned about anyone's feelings. Ella is mad because we got Bubba, so she hisses and growls at me a lot, and she's threatened to slap me a few times, but hasn't quite gotten up the courage for that. In between, she loves me, and when she wants something from me, she loves me a lot.

    People don't credit cats with enough intelligence to have a sense of humor. My friend Pat's Amber had just such a sense of humor. She knew she was well cared for but pretended she was abused. She was teasing her humans.

    It could be that Amber misses Pat and it does seem as though she prefers female company as you mentioned Pat's sister too

    Dwight, what you said to Beth was a little rude...you should have said "intelligent trousers" instead of "smarty pants"!
