I Love It When Cats Have Their "Ways" Of Telling/Asking Us Something

Earlier on in the day I had to wash Flojo's furry cover that is situated on a leather chair in the corner, by the window. She loves her furry cover and I could tell she was missing it. The thing was minging though so it had to be washed, I'm afraid. More than once she would look at the wooden maiden I had the furry cover over to dry as if to say, "Isn't it ready yet, I want me kip!" Eventually, however, I gave in to her needs as about 3 hours ago I was sat watching telly when she came over to me, then walked over to "her" chair, thought twice about jumping up because the cover wasn't there, looked wistfully at the wooden maiden..then back at me..so that was it... Despite the cover being ever-so-slightly damp (but only the backing underneath so she's not lying on it anyway) I decided to lay it back on "her" chair to see what she did. Awww, what happened next was so cute. She jumped up onto her cover immediately and kneeded it for about 5 minutes, then she positioned herself into a little ball and slumped down on it. She's been there ever since. I guess she wouldn't have led on it if it hadn't been suitable? We all know how fastidious moggies can be regarding their sleeping arrangements!

They are all so funny in their sleep routines. Tiger wants to either be on me, or right next to me. Creamery usually will get on Bob and turn a few circles before settling down to purr and snore. Princess has them all fooled though. She sleeps on the bathroom rug a lot of the day, but she also goes upstairs and sleeps on the foot of the bed, on Bob's side. She is the only one allowed upstairs, because generally she will never disturb us, and she never has "accidents".

I agree! I love your cats names..is it Spanish? I remember those words meaning "One, Two and Three" and I hope I'm right. One of my Mum's cats is a bit stressed as my Dad can't bend down to stroke her when Mum is at work. Not surprisingly, she loves it when I come to visit (about 4 times a year but many days each time) as I make such a fuss of her and let her sleep on my lap...the cat not my Mum lol. I love lap cats!

I swear my cat talks to us! our 6 month old cat Tiger looks at us and says something when he needs or wants something. And it's not random meowing. Whenever we come home, he runs towards the door and says something, motioning for the door with his paw. He always gives out that specific sound whenever I'm about to open the door as if saying "open the door now." He also has a distinct sound when asking for milk! My sons say our Tiger is a very clever cat.

They actually can talk right? I have 4 that were sick when we adopted, they are our kids now, very kind. They all have different ways to be, it's so funny how the personality differs from one to another. They meow out loud when they are hungry, they meow paused and very shortly when they are answering me...
