We have 5 animals in our home, 2 dogs and 3 cats. They are all "mine" even though they "tolerate" hubby. They go where I go, including into the kitchen to fix meals. Invariably, the dogs and at least one cat are in the middle of the floor. They don't move. Right now, there is a sun "tangle" in the livingroom and Delilah is warming her bones in it. Izzie prefers the Morgan's bed (a fleece "donut") bed by the window. Your cat feels that by lying in the middle of the floor, she can observe you and the rest of the house w/o having to get up. She has visual and audio contact with what's going on without having to move. Remind me to tell you the story of when I was carrying groceries in one day, stepping over Izzie and he suddenly decided, for the first time in his life, to get out of the way. Of course I couldn't step on HIM! A $30 bag of groceries (and I) landed on the floor. The bag broke but thankfully I didn't. 8o)
