Purrunclaw is a naturally occurring condition that develops when a person is petting a cat, and the cat is enjoying it only to suddenly swipe at the owner with their claws in a definitive pronouncement, “That’s enough!”

In illustration:

“Nan, what happened to your hand? It’s all scratched up.”

“Oh, just some purrunclaw with Flash.”

  1. You know the little noises cats make, usually when they jump up onto a lap…meep, brip, raoul, burrup. Neither a meow nor a purr. I say to my cat “did you just merple?” Hubby said what’s merple? I explained it’s a homemade word for noises that are not purrs or meows and the reason behind ‘Merple’ well it rhymes with purple and I was told there is no word that rhymes with purple.. there is now, in our house at least.

  2. Two of my cats sometimes claw if the human STOPS petting. Una is especially bad about that: *swipe* ‘Where do you think you’re going? You stand there and pet me, or feel the wrath of my fluffy little paw again.’
