In Captain Marvel we see that the cat hurts Nick Fury, but they were both on the same team. Was this an accident or did the cat think it is funny?

    The cat did it to teach Fury not to trust anyone. Commented Mar 11, 2019 at 0:28

    And now you've seen that go back and watch Winter Soldier, and when Fury says his trust line... no where near as cool sounding and kinda ruins the character a little bit if i'm honest, very disappointed in Marvel for their decision to do that to fury. But that's just personal opinion Commented Mar 12, 2019 at 13:39

He was acting like a cat.

Goose didn't like the way Nick was treating him and thus scratched him. (Goose is a Flerken, but has the body of a cat)

The man-cat love story goes smoothly - that is until the mission is over, when Fury, Maria Rambeau, Carol and Goose are all headed home. Apparently, Goose doesn't appreciate the way Fury is handling him at one point, because the Flerken reaches up and scratches Fury right across the eye!

So, the simple explanation was that Goose didn't like the way he was being treated and retaliated.
