How did that happen? That's one thing a housecat can never do.
You know how they find their pecking order among themselves: They fight. That can get quite fierce when none of them gives up. A housecat would never attack you when they question your rank, just because of your size and strength.
That's also the reason why only very stupid men would have a big cat running around in their house. It's a big kitten until the moment comes when it tries out how strong it really is.
Don't you really know who they think you are? They think you are their mother and allow themselves the luxury of playing the little playful kitten when they are with you. Mother protects them and cares for them. They can be very demanding when you spoil them rotten, but it's still only baby behavior.
The good thing is that cats, contrary to common belief, learn very quickly when they want to. If you do it right, you will soon have them purring you to death, because that usually is their next strategy when nagging does not work anymore.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.
