Some of you may remember a December thread where I vented about my new cat who was very needy, wouldn't leave me alone. Well I got her in December and we have worked out the watching TV thing for now. She sleeps on my chest sometimes, and other times snuggled up to my feet. (Apparently I move around too much for her to get a sound sleep...
Well now she wants up when I am on the computer. I type onehanded as we speak. she has one arm I can use the other and she wants her face on mine so there is some negotiating so I can see the screen with one eye. I've been online for an hour now and she has been up and down 5 times so far. I got one of those baby slings to cuddle her in, but....noooo.....it's not the same to her.
Plus she follows me room to room like a toddler. When I am on the phone to my mom I tend to pace and talk. Had to hang up once because after about 45 min the cat was getting tired (she's an old woman you know). Tripping over her creates a huge YOWL! and a dirty look.
I love her dearly but it's getting so I'm so tired and irritated that I can't enjoy her or the 4 others that are getting the short end of the stick because she is so possessive. Is this life with kitty, or can I do something to make her more secure?
PS I must admit I can't sleep anymore without her purrrring me to sleep.

Easy to find a cuddly cat- just go to www.petfinder.com
and look through the pets available in your area until you find a "people kitty" in the description. You'll also find the names of nearby shelters, and if you call or email them with the type of personality you you want they will be able to tell you which cats might suit. I've found that older cats are more sedate and willing to sit and love their person, but ask a shelter worker to be sure.
oh dear...you just had to post that petfinder url, didn't you???
Just curious so I looked for a polydactal kitten and there's a beauty in a nearby shelter. I had an orange male polydactal and just loved those big baseball mit feet to death and now I see a baby baby polydactal! arrrrgggh. Let's see...you think 6 cats would be a bit much???

The perfect cat...
Notes: You don't have to say it, I know I am not the most attractive cat in the world but I have personality that won't quit. OK that is a lie. I don't have the best personality but I really love people. OK that is a lie too. Well, I do like people but will take a bite every now and again. OK well maybe everyday. I guess you could say I am a feisty old hen that just wants a place to spend my golden years. If you are looking for a cat that just hangs out in your house and eats your food then I am the cat for you.
This cat is FIV/FeLV negative, current on vaccines, and microchipped.
This cat will be best in a home where he can live indoors.
If you are interested in this cat or any others from our shelter, you may contact us at (559)233-8554 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
The California Feline Foundation is open for adoption Monday - Saturday, 10:00am - 5:00pm.
...and her pic....awwwwww.
