Sometimes Sybilla says threateningly, "A scarf will always be around my neck." How come?

Is she trying to intimidate someone?
Is she responding aggressively to some offence against her?
Does she actually have a scarf around her neck when she says this? does she always have a scarf around her neck? is the particular scarf that she wears relevant?
Does someone feel threatened by the possibility of Sybilla wearing a scarf around her neck?
Relevant that she says the scarf will be around her neck, as opposed to, e.g. "I will always be wearing a scarf"?

When she says this, is it a threat to hurt someone? to hurt herself? Is someone threatening to hurt her, and this is said in self-defence?
Autoerotic asphyxiation relevant?
Is her scarf hiding something on her neck? A tatoo? A scar? Does she not want someone to see it?
Story of the girl whose head fell off when the ribbon around her neck was removed relevant?

is her age relevant? is she an adult?
child? less than 5? less than 10? less than 15?
old woman? middle aged?

could she achieve the same effect by saying she will always wear a high necked jumper? or some other piece of clothing that covers her neck? is the threat concerned with her neck being covered? could she acive the same effect by saying a scarf will always be around my arm? or some other part of her body? is the threat concerned with the presence of the scarf? could another piece of clothing be substituted for scarf?

is the colur of the scarf relevant? the pattern? does it show allegiance to some academic organisation? to some other group?

is wearing a scarf a signifier of something else?

are any of these relevant: her politics? her religion? her job? her hobbies? her romantic relationships? her family relationships? her pets? her physical appearance? her health? her place of residence? her race?

relevant where she lives? the country relevant? the US?

any laws relevant? any crime relevant?

Is the statement addressed to the cat? Does this scarf belong to you? to the cat? Will your cat be afraid when it sees you with the scarf? Will it be afraid when it sees the scarf hanging over a chair, with no one else in the vicinity?
Age is sort of relevant, but Sybilla could be anywhere between 5 and 90, so.. is it relevant that she is older now than she used to be? are you saying this on your birthday? when it is approaching?

is this said in response to something the cat does? something you think the cat will do?

are any of these relevant: cat scratches? bites? cat sitting on something you want? cat otherwise being in the way? cat food? cat not eating? cat pooping? cat grooming?

does the scarf protect you in some way? stop the cat doing something? are you trying to train the cat? (daft question - cats train humans)

does anyone else hear you say this? relevant?

(Sorry, slightly stupid last question, the cat would be unlikely to understand (or care about) a threat, but you know what I mean)

Had the cat done something to anger the woman?

Had the cat done something to the woman? To her neck?
Or done something to the woman's property?
Or to another animal?
Was the mention of the scarf because of protection for the woman?
Or a suggestion that she'd - strangle? Tie up? the cat?

would the scarf be used in any way as a barrier between the cat and something it might hurt or damage? would the scarf come into contact with the cat at all?

you said the colour was yopishly relevant..
are there some colours that wouldn't work? is it relevant whether the scarf is light or dark in colour? are there some patterns that wouldn't work?

you said another piece of clothing would also work? any piece of clothing? would it have to be a similar shape to a scarf? a similar size? a similar colour? made of similar material?

was the threat that, if the cat did something, you would use the scarf in some sort of response? or you would somehow use the scarf to prevent the cat doing something? or would make it less appealing to the cat to do whatever it was going to do?

Is the scarf made of yarn? Did you knit it yourself?
Relevant that cats like to play with balls of yarn? Do you perhaps take the yarn away from the cat when it misbehaves and use it to make a scarf? And you say you'll always havea scarf around your neck because the cat wont ever stop misbehaving? (I know my cat certainly wont)

is it relevant what kind of material the scarf is made of? is it some sort of slippery material? are you trying to dissuade the cat from jumping up on you?

is there a part of the cat that is relevant? fur? tail? head? claws? teeth?

is the shedding of cat hair relevant? coughing up fur balls? (we had a cat that vomited at least three times a week for 16 years - there's devotion for you!)

does the scarf protect anything?

the thing the cat does - does it actually enjoy it? or is it just normal cat behaviour that has a negative side effect?

does the cat do this every day? did it just do it once?

does some item of yours get damged when the cat does this? or dirtied?

is taking the cat to the vet relevant? having vaccinations? taking pills?

Are you threatening to tie the scarf to the cat's tail?
Is the scarf material particularly heavy?
Or made of some material which would attract static electricity?

P.S. Minor plug for my own puzzle posting, which currently seems to be a two-person effort. Interest appreciated :-)

It looks as though most are. But as long as there were enough people for each role, that would work well, too

Trying to think of more feline behaviour..
are any of these relevant- catching mice? hunting? catching birds? bringing in live animals? bringing in dead ones? jumping up high? jumping down onto you? taking your place? sitting on the newspaper? yowling? purring? washing themselves? getting under your feet? curling around your leg? generally getting in the way? tripping over the cat? sleeping?

is the scarf made of wool? cotton? fur? nylon? is it stretchy? warm?

do you use a fur scarf to dissuade your cat from doing something? from sleeping on you? is it the presence of fur that stops him doing it? does he find another animal's fur repellent? does he think it's an animal? is it real fur? relevant?

At the present point, do you have a fur scarf?
Do you imply that your cat might become a fur scarf?
By fur scarf, do you mean a processed piece of clothing? or do you mean a dead(?) animal hanging around your neck?
Is the cat doing something dangerous? Does it sleep on your pillow? in your bed? ...so that you might roll onto it in the night and hurt it?

As in "there's more than one way to skin a cat" (I never understood why anyone would need even one in the first place)?

the relevant feline behaviour - ignoring you? remaining aloof when you want to pet him?

do you say - if you don't come here and make a fuss of me I shall have you made into a scarf and then I will always have a cat close to cuddle?

**SPOILER************
Clever Hannah triumphs again!!!!! My wonderful cat Palomides, whose picture is on my forum registration page, is usually very affectionate & particularly likes to curl up around my neck. BUT sometimes he refuses to do so. So then I point out that if he doesn't mend his ways, I can make him into a scarf--& a scarf will always be around my neck. Thanks for sticking with it, everyone, & for solving it, Hannah, & please check out my new puzzle at the bottom of the page.
