Question by babyray102: Why does my cat perch at my shoulders? Also, why is she so mean to my boyfriend?
I’ve had my cat, Nala, now for about 8 months, and she is absolutely wonderful. She’s grown to become more attached to me and my boyfriend (and we live together).
She is always coming over to me and cuddle up on my chest (funny that she knows this is most comfortable!), and leaves my boyfriend out. When he goes to take her away from me or pick her up, she wines and wines and sometimes gets very mad at him. I tell him if he just let it happen, she wouldn’t be so mean (but I don’t really know if this is the case).
Also, at night, she will climb up on the back of the couch while I’m sitting or lying down and sit with her face literally a half an inch away from the back of my head. She has done this EVERY night for the past few months and I cannot figure out why.
If anyone has similar situations PLEASE answer my question…she is my first cat and it’s so intriguing to find out about a cat’s behavior.
Answer by Myst I
I have a cat who is very attached to me also.
You’re her mommy and she is a one person cat-not unusual!
The best thing for him to do is to try to get her to play with her favorite toy with him. It is a much better way for them to connect. She has chosen who she wants to snuggle with-perhaps he can be the playtime person!
