Aaaw, a little fuzzy wuzzy!
My oldest does the same. (The one in the pic) I’ll get up just to grab something and in literally the less than 5 seconds it took me to do that I’ll turn around and she’ll have gotten up from her spot, only a couple feet away, and made herself comfy and gives me this smug look.
Difference is this happens so often I scootch her away, or threaten to sit on her. She complains, moves, then sits in my lap and gets in my way and demands full attention.
But I’ve had her since she was 3weeks old and she’s now 13 and she call her our first daughter. So she sasses us and probably thinks of herself as more human than cat. Our non-fuzzy kid even called the cats her siblings for a while!
Oh man, maybe make it a full on pet thread. But be sure to mention it because OT threads don’t show up unless you look there specifically. I never do…
