my vudes is so silly, she has what I call her patting spots in the house. The arm of my chair is number one, then the front window sill window (she also wants to be picked up there), on a little shelf between the main door and garage door and a new one just popped up...on top of one of my tower speakers in my bedroom.

Today I was in my room, I called her and tapped on top of the speaker (first time I tried that but it works at the window) but she didn't show up. About a half hour later I go into my room and she's sitting on my speaker looking at me like she had been waiting, I go over and start patting her, she stands up and because we were then on the same level she put her nose to mine :love:

My cats also have their very specific places they want to be in to get attention. In the “wrong” place, girl kitty will act like she’s being bothered. In the right place... SHE IS the bother. She can yell like crazy for what she wants, where she wants it, but is a lousy communicator about what she actually wants.

It can be really bizarre how deeply entrenched my cats are in their routines. I think NOT following routines is the thing that most bothers girl kitty. Boy kitty mostly doesn’t care (he’s also very dog-like), but he does like to hang out in the warm bathroom with me (wintertime, running the heater).

I can actually see very definite differences in their behavior patterns based on the season. Girl kitty is a bag of bones and fur, since she doesn’t seem to be very food motivated (had to get mertazepine cream to make her eat more)... so she’s obsessed with being on laps ... and on my bed (preferably with me in it, but she’ll take it without... which is forbidden, because she’s a frequent puker :puke:).

A new routine is that I have to let her jump up onto the couch, onto a quilt I normally use to protect my clothes and lap from cat filth when I watch videos (it’s a donated leather couch; sucks heat off in the winter). I then have to wrap or cover her with the half of the quilt she’s not laying on. This might take three or four tries before she’s satisfied, and just PUTTING her there is a huge no-no. Sigh. Sometimes when she leaves it, it’s still possible for her to curl up in it again later, but usually I have to manually adjust it.

I’ve considered getting one of those covered clamshell style cat beds, but they have a history of ignoring every product I buy for them. The cat condo would be a good place to curl up and be warm, but girl kitty seems to use that only in summer (“shade”? Boy kitty finds “shade” under a desk). Boy kitty is a huge beast and doesn’t need the extra insulation of a clamshell bed; the regular cat beds on carpeted floor seems to work for him.

Yeah, the message was that it was too large. Why don't forums (or iOS) offer resizing options for uploaded images?

They're only allowed out under supervision atm. They both managed to get through the fence to the neighbours garden last week. It took a lot of coaxing to get them to come back home.
