You have a very social kitty!! That’s okay! I think that’s a good thing! I’d rather have a pet that likes interaction than one that I never see.

I have two cats and they are both very social but in different ways. Wallace is a cuddle bug. He always wants to be on the chair or bed that I am on and he is blissfully happy when I am petting him. Newton, on the other hand, wants you to play with him all. the. time. He brings me his toy and drops it in front of me so I will throw it (yep, a cat that plays fetch!). Every time I walk into a room he is in, he meows at me – not in a mean way. It’s more like he is acknowledging I just entered the room. It’s like a  “hello, mommy!” type thing.

Cherish it. 🙂 Sounds like you have a wonderful, happy kitty. 🙂

My black cat rules our house too! He knows how to open the bathroom door now so he will interupt at will. When he feels like it he will try to prank us. He always talks to me. Lately, when I pet him he has been petting me back haha.

It’s normal!

Don’t you know that humans are a cat’s pet and not the other way around? Laughing

I’m in a domestically disturbed relationship with our youngest cat. He’s super lovable, but he tricks you into thinking he wants to cuddle and instead will wrap himself around your arm and hold tight while he bites. He also once ran up the arm of the couch and bitch slapped me and ran away. I swear.

@MeghN:  My cat did something similar when he was younger. I was sitting at the far end of the couch. He jumped up and ran down the length of the back of the couch then kind of drop kicked me in the chest and sprung off of me and rocketed himself through the air. I was so shocked I couldn’t even be angry. Luckily he is 7 and now his pranks have subsided into jumping out at me around corners and barging into the bathroom, puffing up, and running away.

@MeghN:  Oh, thank God.  I have this cat!  

Last night, I was laying in bed, minding my own business, when my 14 year old cat LEAPT at me from the bedroom doorway, bit my shoulder, and was out of the room again before I could even blink.

I was in bed sputtering “What the hell…” and she was in the kitchen eating a snack.

This is the same cat that sleeps next to me every single night, putting her nose against my stomach and purring from under the covers.

Yes, I am owned by two kitties and they walk around like they own the place.  This week my girl, Penny, has been terrible!  On Tuesday she woke me up at 2 am and wouldn’t leave me alone until I got up at 6 (I tried to lock her out of the bedroom but she became hysterical), Tues and Wed she waited until 4 am before bugging me, and this morning she decided she would be kind and let me sleep.

Sheldon wants his breakfast by 6:30 am on the dot.  If I feed him before 6:30 he is fine, if I feed him after he will vomit it up immediately.  They say chronic vomiting in cats probably has underlying food allergy/IBD, but I feed him the same food and 6:30 is the magic cutoff time on if he will vomit or not.  So on weekends or when I work swing shift I still get up at 6 to feed him and then go back to sleep.

Not to ruin the cat-party here but both of our dogs talk back to us and give attitude.

Kopi, our boy, doesn’t like to be scolded or sent to his bed so whenever I tell him “Go lay down”, he sulks over to his bed, literally THROWS himself down onto it, then gives me the sink-eye, and growls, barks, or snaps at me (I’m usually about 15 feet away). 

DD, our little girl, has daddy (my husband) wrapped around her finger. When he’s cooking dinner, she’ll come into the kitchen and follow him around. He’ll turn around and tell her (very gently and politely) “Go lay down, sweetie” and she doesn’t move; instead, she talks back to him and sasses him. They have full-on conversations back and forth. She’ll even interrupt him when he’s talking to her and bark over him. 

These are our two fur-kids: Kopi is on the left, DD is on the right

@justagirlxo88:  @Quietserenity:  LMAO! It’s funny because I can totally see my little guy doing these things! He’s not even two yet, so I have a while before he calms himself.

I also have a 12-year-old cat who has a love/hate relationship with him. They fight a lot (he keeps her young!), but one day I walked out of the kitchen and he was standing over her on the couch and she was sniffing his butt. It was awkward for all involved. I swear there was a moment where we all looked at each other before they ran away.

My cat is three. She had a lot of health issues growing up (Severe dehydration, a persistent upper respiratory infection & a cyst that developed in her eye) so she has spent most of her life being tended to, because she was too sick or too weak to take care of herself. She was way too sick to ever “be a kitten”, so now that she’s healthy and the only cat in the house, she’s warped back about 2 years and has actually become a kitten, mischevious and a pain in my ass. I love seeing her act so silly, because I remember the days she was so sick I was afraid we were going to lose her.

 

She definitely rules the house. She has a snooty presence when compared to the big dumb dog. She doesn’t see well in the dark (She only has one functioning eye) and so she gets frightened when the lights are off and will howl until someone comes to get her or she finds her way to a bright spot. She will take up residence on my husband’s computer (that has two massive fans that get very warm) or just place herself in one of our laps. She has also stolen my husband’s brand new Sith Lord robe he got for Christmas, and will commonly overtake the fuzzy blanket on the couch.

She’s a pain in my ass, she’s a booger fountain (I wish I was exaggerating. She has snot oozing from her face 24/7) and she’s my baby. The husband thinks I baby her too much. I do, but I’ve seen her to hell and back and I worry about her.
