I've noticed this in some pets and some people - the first time something unpleasant is done to/with them, they're stoic about the affair. When it happens again, though, is when the real negative reaction kicks in.
Not sure exactly what it is. Possibly a "hey, I _remember_ this, get that away from me" reaction. Or maybe it's more "I thought you were just going to do this the one time!"
Best of luck with Ocras, and I hope it's acute.
