Confessions of loving cat owner

Gunter I love my little cat Gunter, but sometimes I feel like he puts too much pressure on me. You see he's not an ordinary cat, but I suppose most people might say that about their pets. The thing that sets him apart from other cats is his utter devotion to me. He's really quite more like a dog: he follows me around, waits for me by the door, sits by my feet, etc.

The thing that has really been getting to me lately is that almost no matter what I am doing he always there just staring at me waiting for me to look at him. It's kind of creepy and it's a heavy burden know that his world really revolves around me. That he's just there waiting. Like right now if I look down he's going to be there looking at me.

Yep.

TeenyIt's lovely that we've bonded so, but, correct me if I am wrong, don't cats normally have a lot more going on in their inner lives? They're investigating, hiding, lording around the house. My other baby cat, Teeny seems to keep herself more than occupied: she creeps, she sleeps, she knocks things over. Gunter, He's just waiting, lurking, hoping..... Well...... he is a cat afterall so sometimes he forgets that he's waiting and falls asleep. But he's there. I just don't want to disappoint him, but I can't pay attention to him all the time.

for the love of cats... I too am a cat lover... ours just chase and play (and continue bringing the ball and dropping it at our feet.. they are wise beyond our understanding - and just kittens still!

Thanks, Teyani! Llamas are nothing to sweat over.

How funny to see similar *models* of our two cats here! Both of ours are boys, but the same colors as yours. Our kitties are very independent and I'm the one always trying to make them get cozy! Our orange tabby, Griffun, loves to cuddle once in awhile and only under the covers and when I was asleep already. Then he purrs like a huge machine! Who woulda thought he even cared judging by the rest of the time! Our black cat, Bobbie aka Batman, has a flatish face with big fangs that always show. No kidding, he is a bat! He sleeps upside down lying on the floor with his arms up on his chest and his fangs out! They know when we are even thinking about them, though, Bobbie came up onto my lap as I was typing this. I am now warm and cozy!! Love your panta, going to make DD one. Thanks

OM gosh, GAndyS. Your cats sound so cute! I've never seen a cat with fangs hanging out.
