Out of all the cats, Boris is the neediest.  He demands attention and will not take no for an answer.  When he decides he wants cuddles, you'd just better stop and oblige him.  You're not going to get anything done until you do.  Several times a day, he'll walk up to you and nuzzle until he's asleep in your lap or you pick him up.

This is his favorite way to be held if you're standing.  (Yeah, they're really picky around here.)  Dead weight....prepared to dig his claws into your shoulder the second you attempt to put him down.  Obviously our pet's need to come with instruction manuals if anyone from the outside ever plans on interacting with them.  Until we get those written we'll just have to continue to cater to their every whim.

Off to pet someone, I'm sure.  See you tomorrow!

I wish my cat was super affectionate like that. We refer to him as the asshole.

I think that Boris is a bit of a legend. What a sweetie! Apart from the claws digging in..

We used to have very needy indoor-only cats who would fight each other for our laps. Since we moved to the country & have the next generation of cats that go out & in at whim (via cat door) I sometimes have to ask if we still have cats... I long for the old days of snuggly annoying cats.

Megan- Ha, little do you know, that's his middle name. The day after I posted this sweetness, we woke up to find he had chewed all the leaves off of a plant. Not only is that naughty but he had to hop up in the kitchen window to do it, extra naughty!

Becky- Just like Ron Burgundy, kind of a big deal.

Sandra- Our big orange cat used to be like this, but now that he's older and goes outside, not so much. Now he only get's cuddly in the morning when he hops into bed with us. I love that they're cuddly even if it's demanding sometimes.
