God, that sounds just like a cat. I play head games with my Six when he has a snit. Toonah is a once a week treat for the cats and they really love it, so when Six is in a particularly pissy snit, I will get out a can of toonah and sit it, with the can-opener propped on top, next to my reading chair. He has to be in my lap purring before I will open the can. I'm not really sure who wins that game but it is fun!!
