My cats lie down on my newspapers and keyboard. They do not like it when I give my attention to something else. They believe I should give my attention to them at all times. They are a little bit narcissistic. Do your cats do this too?

I'm not allowed to read while they are awake. So sorry, master Zippy is strict about it.

Yes...every cat I've ever had has plopped down on my reading material. Subtle reminder that Cats Rule!

I haven't read a newspaper in my house since way before I got the cats. One of my cats will come over to check out my computer when I have a music video playing. Generally my cats are happy to be near me, or exploring the house. One is upstairs now playing with the robovac and looking out the open windows/doors. Ah, she just came down to use the litter box. Generally they're not lap cats, but they will sleep on the bed with me. They're both young, I think as they get older they may evolve into lap kitties. Right now there is just too much to explore!


Bug even gets mad when I talk on the phone! If he’s near me and I use my phone, he’ll move elsewhere.


Never had a cat that didn't.

No never, they just sit in front of me all the time, they help me type, eat, and watch tv.


Here she is biting my phone because I was ignoring her


All the time. One nips my elbows if I stop petting him. The other wakes me up at 3 am to pet her. One wakes me up to give him cat treats. ?


I have a cat just like that. She has to have all the attention even when in the bathroom. She is a naughty cat when she doesn't get attention she wants. I've gone through three shower curtains because she would claw at them because she wasn't getting attention. Thankfully I get those at the dollar store.

Spike pulls all the towels down.

@Booklover I've got just one that knocks stuff off a table if not given treats by 9 pm sharp...

@Booklover He's a naughty kitty.

@RavenCT My other cat will wake me up because he can see the bottom of his good dish. He has plenty of food.

@Captain747ex I conquered that one by giving them a large plate.... As it doesn't roll away from a central point it really helps. I used to be a turkey platter and it's filled up once a day for three cats.

@RavenCT I might have to get them a bigger dish.

@Captain747ex Just like "Jaws"... "We're gonna need a bigger boat.".

@RavenCT Very true.


Of course, its part of the job description.
