15 Oct The Kitten Chronicles: Close Proximity Cat
While some people have lap cats, we call Baby our “close proximity cat”, for she often likes to be near us while keeping her distance.
When we are working the office, Baby is frequently behind us on the couch. When in our sunroom, she’ll snooze on a nearby overstuffed chair or curl up on the rug. At night, she occasionally stretches out on the foot of our bed, in the very corner.
Yet, if we gently sit next to her and stroke her fur, sometimes she will take our hand and pull it closer. In other instances she’ll allow us to shift her onto a lap, although sometimes she immediately jumps to the floor. At other times she settles down and purrs. Whether near or far, oh how sweet she is.
