Gracee, the eldest of the cat authors, can only be described as an anxious cat. She grooms herself more than the other cats, never cuddles with the other cats and tries to control her siblings sometimes with hisses and swats. One week Gracee had a daily and nightly hissing and swatting episode with at least one of her siblings. She was swatting so much that week that Spirit, when he walked by her, closed his eyes anticipating her swats. And she is lightning fast....ten swats in a half-second with the same paw. Fortunately, she doesn't use her claws.
