I don't know, but looks normal to me
. My Dad had a Burmese (died and gone to kitty heaven 2 years ago) that would look and do worse than that if you got between her and her Daddy. She absolutely despised my sister and me, but tolerated Mom because she fed her. She is the only cat that we've had that I've seen throw a major temper tantrum if she didn't get her way. She absolutely hated my younger brothers step-kids. Every time they would come over she would go hide under our parents bed and hiss and growl the whole time they were there (and I'm talking about well behaved kids who knew the difference between acting up and being polite. They were some of the most behaved kids I'd seen in quite some time). She had Dad wrapped around her little claw. It's taken Dad a while to get over her death, and he's now talking about getting another Burmese. I just hope the next one will allow family members close. If I had a picture I would post it to show you one of her famous hissing poses.
