Pawtrauma – v. the sound of a cat’s scratching claws on your outside windowpane, which is not unlike “Chalktrauma“.
Tap, tap, tap…. scritch, scritch, scritch… you know what they want! Those cats want in for some noms, some fun, or maybe just for some snuggles. They are going to enter your house when you give into the sound of pawtrauma, and take you into their kawaii zone. From bathing in the sun all day to coming in with frosty paws on a winters’ night, they will make you give into the pawtrauma, because this sound is so annoying, you have no choice but to make it stop. The sound of one cat doing this will make the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end, but if you have multiple cats creating a pawtrauma chorus, just out of you chair and let those felines in now! They will not give up until they get what they want. Your dog might think he’s human, but your cat was once revered as a god, and cats never forget this, and they want to make sure you never forget it either. If you do, you might someday become the victim of Clawtrauma, but that’s a different sniglet for a different day.
