From personal experience, I can say that there are times when you may just need to shrug and say: "Look, I have a deranged cat, okay?"

I have a 6 month old Rabbit, and on one occasion I was lifting him up to carry him back downstairs, after playing with him, and he decided he thought it'd be fun to jump from my arms back onto my bed. Well, as he did this his back claws (which were very long and are hard to trim) caught my wrist on the way down. I had 4 scratch marks on my wrists, but only one bled and scabbed over, which now is a scar.
After that another incident occurred and I ended up getting scratched again, (he's quite moody for such a young bunny, but I haven't had him long, so it's not his fault, he's getting use to us) this time while I was putting food in his cage, and this scratch went across the old one.
Now I have a scar in the shape of an 'X' on my wrist. It's not super noticable, but the thought is in the back of my mind that someone could think that I was a self-injurer.
So I'm in your position. It doesn't really bother me because I know how I got the scars (which are fading) and if anyone asks, I can tell them what happened. If they don't believe me, they can meet my rabbit. LOL!
