Daily Close Moment With Your Cat — 11 Comments

      • Dee, it is a pretty basic video but the point I want to make (but not to switched-on people like you) is that cat owners should spend some quiet, close time with their cat. The moment should be intimate and loving. I am not sure all cat owners do that. It is important.

        • All cat owners, certainly, don’t spend that kind of time with their cats. One of my neighbors has 2 cats that dart over here when they see me out on the deck. They’re not hungry; all they want is some attention and affection. So sad. I’m stretched pretty far and time is a hot comodity here, but there will always be time for pets, hugs, and kisses.

          • It can often come down to available time. Yet people should find the time and if they can’t they should adjust their lives 😉 Perhaps it could be a measure of a balanced life: If you can spend ten – fifteen minutes quietly with your cat daily you have balance in your life.

  1. Jeff and Monty have a moment together every morning. This morning Monty was completely relaxed on Jeff’s lap. Jeff kept saying, “I have to go to work. You have to get up.” Monty didn’t budge. He was completely limp (Jeff calls that “floppy cat”) and so relaxed I actually asked if he was ok, because he wasn’t responding at all, just laying there. Jeff finally had to gently lift him down from his lap and place him on the floor, because he really did have to leave for work. Monty loves that time in the morning between when my husband gets up and when he has to leave for work.

    • This sounds like the situation I have with Charlie. Monty and Jeff have that cat buddy relationship. It is good that Monty is so relaxed – very trusting. Good for Monty’s health and Jeff’s.

      For a cat it feels secure to be close to their human companion. When Charlie comes in from being outside and I am in bed he’ll come to me for reassurance. He can look a bit anxious sometimes, perhaps because something scared him a bit, and he soaks up the friendship.

      • If I’m inside watching Monty through the screen door he will keep coming up to the door– not to come in, but just to make sure I’m there. If Jeff and I are in the back room talking while Monty plays outside he will often stay right up on the back porch– still outside, but close enough to hear our voices.

  2. Oh Charlie, what a nice little demo. It was perfect with a peek at your gorgeous eyes at the end. Such contentment. As I type, Marvin is sitting on my shoulder. I just came down after a cuddle with Bigfoot. If only I could hold beautiful Yellowcat. She would love it.

    My day would not be complete or happy if I didn’t take time for everyone. On their terms of course.

    • This is a very sweet picture. Marvin is quite a big cat. Is he half on your shoulder and half on the chair.

      These are important bonding moments. I make a point of calling Charlie over to me for a “session”.
