Sophie is 10 months old, and can be still pretty cuddly with me at times (when she's in the mood), but when I take her to visit my parents these days (most weekends) she's gotten more independent -- she used to hang around us, and fall asleep on our laps when she was tired.. These days, we're lucky if she'll even wants to be in the same room as the rest of us! Doesn't stick around to enjoy pets even...
I really thought she would be a people cat, now she seems very rebellious -- which is why it makes me think of the teenage phase!
I know its probably impossible to say for sure, but is this her personality coming out, or just a stage?
Oh, and recently she's obsessed with wanting to jump to places a smidge too tall for her. It drives her crazy sometimes
