I can see why humans and cats have stuck together over time. In winter they act quite conveniently like a hot water bottle that you don’t need to fill up. They snuggle up to you and help keep you really warm.
The only problem is that often Fritz doesn’t want to sit near me, he wants to sit on me. He used to just sit on my legs. Recently, however, he’s taken to jumping up on my body, rather than the couch, and making himself comfortable. First it was my legs, now he jumps right onto my stomach. A bit uncomfortable with his little prodding feet.
He is growing up to be a very cute cat though, and much more inclined to come and seek cuddles than he did before. He seems to do as he’s told more as well, and actually seems to listen to the ‘Stay’ command now when we open doors.
Now, if only I could train him to give back rubs and clean the house…
