Usurped As Favourite Human!

PreciousPussGirl has decided I am no longer her favourite human, it is now DD1, aged 6.

I guess I move around to much in my sleep, as keeps abandoning me in favour of snuggling beside DD1.

I am in the huff envy

It must be a hard thing to live with, joking aside. It's a true rejection - she just prefers DD1. There's no way round it with a cat. They decide on their 'person' and that's that.

Aw, how lovely for your DD, though - I bet she's delighted with herself : )

(I like not being Favourite Human - I actually get some time to myself! DH constantly has at least one cat somewhere about his person, which would drive me mad)

Yes. Big up your DD1 as the family 'cat person'. smile

Oldcat abandoned DH when DGD came along, for some reason the screeching small person was more of a draw than the old person who feeds her. He had a huff for a few days too, then saw the benefits, she still comes to him when she wants food, but she's not always round his feet anymore. No doubt when DGD gets even more mobile than she is now(16mnths) oldcat will revert back.

The kitten we bought as my cat has never preferred me, btw, much to my dismay, she latched on to DS and is still devoted to him after 4 years sad

I do still get some snuggles, but yes DD1 is thrilled, she's always been an animal lover. But she's my cat confused

I hear you. My big ginger boy latched on to my teenage DS as his person. I get some grudging cuddles, but if DS is around I might as well not exist.

Our other cat adores me and only me, though, which is probably one reason why the other one doesn't.

I don't really mind, I'm glad DS has such a lovely relationship with the cat. It's so nice to see a big, hulking teenager snuggling this enormous ginger cat like a furry baby grin

Best to never ever get a cat as a present for someone, even if you know that they want one badly, have made provision for it and may even choose it. You just can't tell who the cat may eventually decide is their 'person' and it's bad enough being rejected when you're an adult. I wouldn't like to have to try to explain to a youngster why 'their cat' appears to favour someone else!

I have decided she is just fickle. I didn't go to bed quick enough, so DD's bed. Then I got in bed, so my bed. Then I turned over to go to sleep, so back to DD's bed. Ah well.
