Cat for sale - Free shipping

Pushiest cat I've ever had.

Apparently I'm no longer allowed to sit in "my spot" on my sofa.

(And no, I'm not really going to ship my cat anywhere.)

1. One of mine sits on me the moment I light anywhere, but especially in MY chair, which

she always lies in when I am not there. But when she is on me in my chair, she STANDS, which is not at all comfortable for me, because she wants me to get up and let HER have HER chair to herself.

2. Your mistake lies in the phrase "my chair".

8. MY cat is also wrong. You/we are always THEIR human.

5. You're right

My bed also belongs to the cats, apparently. They could choose any other bed in the house, but every night at least one of the four will lay smack dab in the middle of my bed and then act all offended if I have the gall to want to get into it.

3. Exactly what mine does

I know it's a power move. She's a vindictive cat. When i told her a few weeks ago that she couldn't have more treats. within a half hour she brought a live dove into the house. She dropped it as soon as I scolded her, and I threw a towel over it and took it outside and it flew away. I doubt it was okay, but I didn't see any other option.

Lizard season will be here before we know it.

7. Little savages.

Here in Tucson, at the moment, we're having a population explosion of short-lived flies that bear an uncanny resemblance to gigantic mosquitoes. My two brutes love them, because they tend to fly slowly close to the ground.
A Savannah Cat and a SHD that weighs fifteen pounds thundering around the house in pursuit of flying insects is entertaining.
And alarming.

6. One of my cats claimed "my" chair as his own,

parked himself in it every time I stood up, complained when I moved him, then parked himself on me as soon as I sat down. But I finally managed to lure him away by getting a pet bed heater and putting it under a blanket on the couch, which is next to my chair. Now he mostly sleeps there and only occasionally sits on me.

9. Great solution!

I have one, but it's currently in use in another room. Maybe I'll order another.

Edited: I forgot to say thank you. Thank you.
