Then daddy gets home and Wickett goes about bugging Frankie for a bit or something else. Then an hour later he's on the couch looking at me with those eyes. If I don't pet him or if I ask him "what?" he'll quietly tell me that he wants some snuggles. He usually only has to ask once but sometimes I find his little "please" meows so cute that I'll ask him a few times what he wants and if he's sure about it... it's really cute... until I'm in bed half asleep.
Oh yeah, I definately appreciate it..especially at night, when I've got the bf on one side and Wonton on the other - I feel very safe and snuggled up
It's just that I grew up an only child, and learned to entertain myself a lot of the time, and I just need a bit of alone time everyday - that means alone, no ppl, no cat - just me. I only need an hour or so.. but I need
it. 99 times out of a hundred tho, I let him up on my lap regardless. It's impossible to say no to that face

I go to the bathroom and she's right there tapping me on the leg. I go to the kitchen and she's right there looking at me. I sit at my computer and she's on the shelf by my knees tapping and pawing at my leg to get my attention.
I love her to pieces, but it's very frustrating to have such a needy kitty when trying to do stuff. I love to cuddle with her, just not 24/7 like she wants. I wish I had someone else here at times so that they can spend time giving her the attention that she craves.
Exactly.. Wonton's the same - if my bf and I go into the garage and close the door so he can't follow (he's not allowed in there in the daytime, cos the landlord uses it too and there is a chance he could slip out), he sits and meows piteously at the door. He can't stand knowing we're in another room, but he's not.

He's still a kitten though and is actually not quite as bad as he was.
Sho is more polite, he will look at me, nod a little then come over. But only after I've invited him by nodding back or patting my lap or beside me.
aww.. Sho sounds very polite and sweet
Wonton already got his morning snuggles from me this morning - he's in sleeping on the cable box, cos it's nice and warm, so I've actually got a moment to myself right now
