It never ceases to amaze me just how loyal and loving a little cat can be. I see people claim that cats are self-serving, that dogs are loyal and loving, that cats are independent and don't care, that cats only pay attention to you when they want something from you, and many other such statements. I can only conclude that people who say such things either never had a cat or never tried to form a positive relationship with a cat.
Even now as I write this, Uno lays on my lap between my laptop and me. Lefty is curled up in her usual spot behind my head. Lefty is nearly as devoted to me as Uno. Buddha, Gabe, and a few other cats lay scattered around my bed.
All during my convalescence from my surgery, Uno lay on me or beside me. When I get up to to go to the bathroom, she gets up, follows me, waits for me outside the bathroom door, follows me back to my bed, and resumes her place on my chest, lap, or beside me. She prefers to lay on my chest or lap and only lays beside me instead of on me when I insist on it. Wherever I go in the house, she follows me. When I take Destiny outside to relieve herself, Uno waits by the door, then follows me when I come back in and waits for me to sit or lay down again so she can again resume her place on me. About the only times she's not on me or beside me is when she lets other cats have their turns to lay on me and beside me.

I think that when you get love like that from a cat, it is even more special, because they do not give it freely like a dog does. Doggies are great, but they are bred to be people pleasers. When a cat loves you, you have been chosen as special in their eyes, and become theirs. What a great thing- to be loved by a cat.....I know when I see those little faces, and I get that look - you know the one....my heart sings...
What a precious kitty that Uno is :-)
Yes. I never let my mom out of my sight.
I love my cats ... they are great companions and they do follow me around... especially fuzz... if I am upstairs they will cry at the top of the stairs at the door there ... they have to be where I am always.. never lonely with my little furry creatures.... love buzz and fuzz's "mom"
Pipo loves to be with pawppy, and follows him all over, talks to him, too...in all kinds of various kitty speak.
Minko seems more of a meowmy;s c=kitty, he wants to get between me and the laptop's keyboard which can be problematic...MOL!
Kitties! They do love to give love to whom they want to!
