Dixie *cat*

Our cat is a bit weird. He loves people - and tends to be wherever we are.

In the morning he wants to be fed, so he tries to get into our room to wake us up.  To prevent this we generally baracade our door.

After eating he either comes back into our room (if we have gone back to bed) or he follows us into the living room where he tries to sit on one of us.

If we are in the house during the day he curls up to snooze in the room we are in.  If we leave the room to spend an extended period in another room (for example when I practise in the spare room) he will tentatively sit and hope for some attention.  He is unlikely to get any.

Around 4pm he starts to demand food again, but we try to hold off to 6ish as this is when we would be in on a working day.  We don't always manage to wait that long as he can be very annoying tripping us up at every turn.

Following his evening meal he will curl up on one of us until we go to bed - this may be interrupted by periods where we are not sitting... but he'll just wait til we do sit again to leap onto a lap at a moment's notice.

If we go out, Dixie goes out. 

He'll meet us at the gates on our return.

Sounds like he's got you very well trained. LOL!

I know...much as I'd like to think I've put Mr Tucker on the right schedule, when I really give it some thought I realized the he has more control than I do!

I agree with 逸蔡凡逸蔡凡逸蔡凡, it's lovely to have a friend like that. A house doesn't seem right without a cat xx
