I think my cat is competing with my boyfriend LOL. My 9yo male orange tabby I think thinks my live-in boyfriend is his competition. Sometimes I'll pick Tigger up and he smells like my boyfriend. I later realized that he has a tendency to lay on all his dirty clothes. When I picked Tigger up, he smelled like car grease (earlier that day my boyfriend was working on his car), and then later on that night I saw he kept laying on the same sweatshirt that smelled like that car grease. Another time, he smelled like my boyfriend's dirty clothes, and when I picked him up, he smelled just like that. Even tho my boyfriend plays pretty rough with him, Tigger still seems to love him cuz he always rubs really hard against his legs. I was thinking, either he is trying to smell like my bf cuz he sees that I pay just as much attention to my bf as I do him OR Tigger is marking himself on all his clothes and trying to show domination over my boyfriend. One time, Tigger even threw up inside of my boyfriends jeans that were laying in the dirty clothes pile on the floor LOL. Either way, it's funny! I've had my cat his whole life....I've been with my boyfriend for a year. I show Tigger so much attention (I treat him like my own child), yet he still competes. Does anyone else have a cat that seems like he does that? It's not a problem, just an observation.
