    My cat is obsessed with me and is more or less indifferent to my husband. He sits with him when he wants to be petted (I’m not much of a petter. More of a companion/cuddler/playmate), but other than that he’s following me, looking at me, sitting by me, playing with me, etc. Even when he is staring out the window his ears are always pointed in my direction listening to me lol. If my husband says his name he twitches his tail slightly as acknowledgment, but if I say his name his tail goes up and he usually meows in reponse. Darling Husband finds it “annoying”, but that’s only because he’s jelous of our relationship haha!

    Here is an example of what I’m talking about. I was on the recliner texting my husband and I look down and he’s staring at me like this:

    Kinda. Our dog is a momma’s boy for me for general snuggling, but he won’t play with me. He prefers to play with “dad” – it makes both of us sad! Sometimes I want to play and sometimes hubby wants to snuggle! But dumb dog has kind of compartmentalized us, lol.

    My dog is my absolute baby. Fiance gets annoyed. When he opens his crate, Theo runs right to me (and eventually runs back to see Fiance lol). When I come home, Theo goes crazy. And in general, he’s attached to me 24/7.

    Our puppy definitely prefers me over my husband.  He squirms right out of my husband’s arms & will coming running to me haha.  We don’t know why & definitely makes my husband sad sometimes, but I think he also knows that I’m the cuddle buddy & main care taker where as my husband rough-houses & feeds him from time to time ;).  

    Obligatory picture..

    OMG your kitty is so cute!!

    We adopted out dog Dodger after we moved in together. He is techincally “our dog” but he is definetly much more attached to me. He follows me al over the house, waits by the door when he hears me pull in the driveway, sleeps with me, and just seems very responsive to me. I think it’s because I sepnd more time playing with him and I talk to him all the time. I also do agility training with him, so I think he is just used to working with me more.

    Pinkmoon:  Thanks! Reading the other replies… it’s good to know I am not the only one who’s pet follows them to the bathroom or when they go for a shower or dry their hair. He hates water and the hair dryer but always lurks as nearby as he deems possible haha!

    Does anyone’s pet try to eat their bath bubbles? Totally ruins the moment if you’re taking a relaxing bubble bath and you open your eyes and a giant fluffy head is leaning on the the edge of the tub

    All of our pets prefer me… Lol we have a dog and two cats (the cats were DH’s before I moved in) and they all follow me around, sleep on my side of the bed, sit on the couch with me. Darling Husband gets so mad if he’s trying to get one of them to come cuddle or let him pet them and I so much as breathe in their direction or move at all they will ditch him and sit with me. Lol although they do love that Darling Husband always has a cup of water next to the bed, the cats always drink out of them… so he’s got that going for him. 😉

    We have two cats. One I’ve had for almost nine years! He is my child. Loves me and adores me. We adopted another cat a few years back and she is very much DH’s cat. She snuggles him anytime he sits on the couch. I get love from her too, but it’s nice we each have “our” cat.

    All of these animals are so cute! Our cat loves us both, just depends on what we’re doing. At night, he’s a daddy’s boy. He will meow until my husband plays with him and loves to play rough. Early in the morning and when he is in a cuddle mood, it’s all about me. He will curl up next to me in the morning so we can sleep together. He’s a cutie!

    ETA: My cat loves baths, but only my husband can wash him. It’s their special time and he will look at me like I’m crazy if I’m in the bathroom while he’s getting a bath.
