Interestingly, Beth (who is a wonderful caretaker of rescue cats) is taking full blame for the incident — warning fans and followers to read the warning signs of your animals so accidents like this don’t happen.
“Note to self: listen to Pebble and allow her to communicate by her warning signs. Pebble was noticeably agitated by me cleaning her poopy bum (growling and hissing), and after I finished, I tried giving her a kiss on her head. This was my fault. And I learned. #listentoyourpets ♥️, she captioned the picture on IG.

Several fans responded to the pictures with stories of their own, with one writing, “This is good advice Beth! I had to learn this with my temperamental cat Murphy. I look at his body language and let him cool down on his own instead of trying to kiss and cuddle him as I want. hope your scratch is ok ?.”
