Narcissistic cat mom? I adore you but ignore you most of the time?
My daughter in law had a cat that she swore was her baby. I stayed at the house and this cat’s box was always unusable and food bowl empty. No fresh water and never brushed or played with. I bought litter, food, treats, brush and toys and fixed all that neglect. Whenever she heard my voice, she would run to me, even after I had been away for months. My dil said I deliberately stole her affection.
My spoiled babies follow me from room to room, will cry if I shut a door so they can’t come in, and have never bitten me or scratched me on purpose. I’m not one to attribute human emotions to animals but based on their actions, I will take cat unconditional love over people’s any day of the week.
