Step 1: Only do it if you are confident and have NO fear.
Step 2: Scoop him up without hesitation, and in a quick semi-circular movement of both arms, from behind. Never attempt to carry him from the front (that would be suicide).
Step 3: Hold him in a such a way that his head is close to yours (pressing on your head or hair is wise) and his jaws are facing AWAY from any biteable parts on your face.
This is a safe pose: Hug him tightly and ensure his face his away from your face.
This is also permissible.
This is not advisable. Do so at your own risk.
(Note: The Cow-cat might bite off your nose in a moment of psychotic frenzy.)
A Cow-Cuddle should not last for more than 2 minutes. This is non-negotiable. Anything above 2 minutes is considered "over-petting" and any self-respecting Cow will retaliate by first giving a warning hiss or sometimes, if one is unlucky, there is no warning hiss. One would then have to quickly wash the bitten area with clean water and rush to the vet's for a tetanus jab.
Just before the 2-minute period is up, gently but confidently put the Cow-cat down on the floor, again, with his/her back towards you. Never face a Cow frontwards.
Are all black-and-white cats slightly psychotic?
I seriously don't know!
