Maybe he thinks he is protecting you or you need protecting.Can someone tell me why my downstairs cat (that's what I call him...) will enter the room when I'm in it but sit a few feet away from me facing away from me?
There are 2 cats in my house. Downstairs cat (named Manny. He's a Maine Coon and was named by my wife) and bedroom cat. Bedroom cat is also a Maine Coon but she's a lot smaller and named Mollie by my wife.
I call downstairs cat speed bump a lot of times because he'll lie on the floor facing away from me. In the way.
Cats are their own breed it is amazing how they can act and also amazing how dogs are so loving - so just love them all!That's kind of what I was thinking... he's on guard duty or something.
He's an odd cat though. He was raised at the same time as a dauchsund and the 2 palled around together until the dauchsund went back to his original owner last year because she was lonely... the cat will look at you and you can tell he wants attention and wants to jump on the furniture for attention but just won't. Not saying he won't jump on the furniture. There's no keeping him off of it. He just has that look about him that he wants attention but doesn't know how to get it.
And I won't get into how he annoys me by sitting right next to my chair and meowing until I pet him. Ugh. Annoying.
