I talk a lot about my dog, and she IS a sweetie and batshit crazy and a lovable annoyance worth talking about. I've also got two cats, in this tiny house we live in. The younger of the two, Ellie, is an odd sort of cat. I think that she thinks she's a puppy.
I've seen cats sit in people's laps, or snuggle with them in bed. I've never seen a cat follow someone around until they sit or lay down, meowing the whole time as if to say "hurry up and sit/lay down, I want some snuggle time!!"
Speaking of which, both of these cats are the loudest, most talkative cats I've ever run across in my life. Ellie has this weird sort of whining meow, like the Knights who say Ni! except more drawn out. It is sort of a drawling "Niiiiiiii" over and over again until she gets her way.
I've seen cats who like to drink water from the faucet, or bat at running water with their paws. I've never seen a cat stare at the faucet, the coffee pot, and the iced tea brewer. Just stare, motionless and completely transfixed as though dripping water is the most interesting thing in the entire world. Even stranger? Ellie has a fixation with the side of the sink with the garbage disposal, because that's where the water from the dishwasher drains out. The whole time the disposal is running, she's sitting on the counter staring down the drain... WHY?!?!?!
Here's a picture of Ellie I took this evening... cute, right?
