A cats emotional bond with it’s owner

cat-lapSome people will say that cats don’t get attached to their owners like dogs do. I have to disagree. I have two cats and both are attached to me but my older cat Mollie is with me every hour that I spend at home. She is sitting with me right now purring as I write this piece. She follows me around where ever I go. When I’m watching TV, reading or working, she is right there with me. She’s even in the bathroom waiting for me to get out of the shower so I could pet her. She sleeps in my bed at night and even wakes me up in the morning if the alarm doesn’t go off. She knows the exact time that I must get up and she sits on the nightstand and meows. So I do think that cats could get very attached to their owners. The key is to give them lots of affection when they are very young. I found Mollie when she was only 5 weeks old. I aways gave her lots of love and affection and I sure do get lots back in return. Cats can be more independent but that doesn’t necessary mean that they are not attached to their owners. Got to go, time to give Mollie her snack. She also tells me when it’s time for that too!
