i've heard the same thing, that cats will go to the person who is not acting interested in them. blossom likes to sit on my husband's lap, and not mine (i don't have much of a lap these days, anyway) but the moment i start doing some cross-stitch...there she is! i have also found that if i'm reading a book, her highness will come over and plop right down on the pages and then act like it's no big deal.
we've had snooker and blossom for about 3 weeks, and snooks is just getting to the point where he'll let me pet him. he's really sweet on my 6yr old son, even lets him pick him up. i felt a bit jilted too, but i reluctantly gave him his space.
a few days ago, he started following me everywhere i went, watching me. if i looked at him, he would dash away (i'm not that
). so if i noticed him in the room, i would start talking baby talk to him but not look at him. yesterday that little rascal walked over to where i was sitting, sat on his bottom and stared at me. i looked at him and said 'hi snooks! what's up?' kind of casually and he looked right at me and gave the most adorable meow! i guess i'm on his 'okay' list because now he lets me hold him a bit and sometimes i'm even allowed to rub his chin!
of course you wanted to hear my life story
but i guess i'm saying don't worry, your kitten loves you and will warm up to you, too. just relax, and it will happen!
