  • hi, it sounds like your kitten has bonded with you. it is normal, but doesn't happen with every cat. i hope you are glad that your kitty wants to be with you, and can enjoy the special relationship that is available to the 2 of you! give your kitten a ear rub from me, take care! Lisa

  • It varies from cat to cat, but in my opinion it is a special happening. Enjoy having such a sweet kitty and give her the attention she craves. We've had 7 cats and only one was this sweet and loving. Some of the others didn't mind being picked up and petted, some were "feed me and leave me alone." :)

  • You are lucky that your cat is so fond of you. My first cat was a brat and never wanted to be petted or held. Very independent. My cat now loves to get lovin'. Consider yourself lucky.

  • :-) She loves you. Just watch out for Seperation Anxiety Disorder. If you leave and she starts tearing up the house, urinating on your things...

  • Awww, she really has bonded with you as her Momma...thats a very special thing...
    But as one person stated earlier, watch out for S.A.D....
    I have two cats that have to constantly be in the same room as me, my boy even has to go to the potty with me. If I close the door and don't let him in, he sits there and cries, LOL
