My two cats give every evidence of not hating me.

That's what they WANT you to think, Ron.  : )

Yes, and they give you nightmares...

Squeaky, who is just 9 months old hates me now and then. Mostly, when she wants to play but I am working or wasting my time on TA. Then, after guilt-tripping me by sitting on the floor under me staring at me with a pleading expression on her face, she will stand on her hind legs, grip my arm with her claws, and give me a little bite. Not a killing bite but a "do I have your attention NOW?" bite. 

While she trust me enough to sleep with me, sometimes crawling under the covers, she still does not trust me with her tummy. Any attempt to touch her tummy will bring out her big guns. Forget teeth and foreclaws, the big guns are the rear claws. One thing a cat does with, say, a mouse, is to grip it in her mouth and hold it with her foreclaws while raking the shit out of it with her rear claws. You do not want to experience a cat's rear claws used in anger. I'd rather be bitten.

Cat's were worshipped by ancient civilizations.No-one told them we stopped.

“Owners of dogs will have noticed that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they will think you are god. Whereas owners of cats are compelled to realize that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they draw the conclusion that they are gods.”

Cats providing people with perspective since ancient egypt.

@unseen not sure which is worse actually. teeth or razor sharp kitten claws.

@angela  I have permanent scars on my legs from her kitten hind claws. I tend to get dressed to go out of my apartment or to receive guests. Otherwise I'm in my underwear or shorts (sorry about that mental image). She would get pissed at me for wanting to get up while she was curled up in my lap and would fly out of my lap with her hind claws exposed. One particular scar on my right inner calf is about 5" long. Cat bites and scratches tend to infect easily. Mine always have pink around the edges until they are fully healed, indicating a low level infection. Cat mouths are far dirtier than dogs. If you get a serious cat bite, go to the ER.
