You travel 3 1/2 hours one way to get the tuna flakes your kitty likes so much.
You have pictures of your cat up in your office.
People are tired of looking at 20 pictures in a row of your kitty.
You plan out your social schedule so that your not away from home every night of the week.
You "hold it" because your kitty is so comfortable on your lap and you don't want to disturb him.
