This adorable kitty lives in the apartment below mine. I call her “Madame Moustache”, or sometimes just “Madame”. All I know is that she’s female and quite old. She’s also a moody kitteh: one minute she’ll run up to greet me at my car and roll over onto her back for a belly rub, then she’ll suddenly start to “fight” me, scratching and hissing. As Professor Ceiling Cat pointed out to me, she most likely never learned to play in a non-aggressive manner, and thus doesn’t understand that her style of  playfulness can seem rather combative to teh humanz.

A few days ago, after giving her a belly rub, I decided to take a short film of she and I playing together. It’s cute and rather lolzy in places:


And some photos of Madame:
