My new kitten... Again

I'm obsessed I know. But not really had much kitten experience and want to know if my kitten is extraordinary :) he's now 14 weeks and he is so loving. He's like a baby. He lies on me, purring away and snoozing. He looks at me with his beautiful little eyes and gently touches my face. I just want to know if this is normal kitten behaviour! He's like a pfb :)

Normal when they love you very much and have bonded with you.

He sounds completely adorable! My clingy kitten is over a year old now and still wants me most of the time. He likes to lie in my lap and sleep near me and sometimes wakes me up because he thinks it's time he he had some attention. He also follows me around meowing and accompanies me to the loo. He's the most loveable and most annoying animal ever at the same time!

Cozie, he's so adorable. I just love him to bits. If I could take him everywhere I would. I hate even leaving him downstairs at night but he keeps me away if I don't. He's lying on me now wrapped in my cardie. He's purring away and his little paw is gently rested near my face. I think he might be dreaming. He's twitching and making cute little noises :)

I think we need to see a picture!

Madra, I can see why it can be annoying at the same time. He does follow me everywhere. Interestingly he loves company. I had a full house at the weekend and he quite happily snuggled into my friends whole we were all being our usual loud selves. Everyone loved him. He's well and truly part of the family.

My boys have always slept with me. Having a snooze with a cat cuddling into you is one of the best things.

I think maybe you'd find that he would calm down at night within a couple of nights if he was allowed to sleep with you.


feelinlucky · 16/12/2013 18:14

We tried it cozie and he just wanted to play. :)

Ah well. Downstairs is best then.

my two 6 month old kittens snore!
Yet they maintain the cute factor even in this state. when I get back from work they both lie on their backs so that I can pet bellies.

They love to be cuddled but nie they are too big to both fit on my lap; cue the fighting and shoving from both of them to get the comfy spot.

in my next life I will come back as a cat. all the cuddling petting and generally being cute can't be such a thing.

Notyetthere · 16/12/2013 18:27

cant be such a bad thing.

cuttingpicassostoenails · 16/12/2013 18:29

Oh god...I'm kitten broody again now.

feelinlucky · 16/12/2013 18:30

How do I put a photo on here? I'm pmsl at him. He's spread eagled on top of me. Funny little thing :)

I've put a couple of photos on my profile. His feet are spread eagled.

Mine did that pre-neutering. Now he's a big boy boy who doesn't need as much closeness.

He still sleeps on my lap if he can. Your kitten loves you.

cozietoesie · 16/12/2013 18:45

Awww - a belly up sprawl.


sashh · 17/12/2013 06:33

Mine sleeps like that (your pics) in the summer, she finds a bit of sun outside, stretches out and goes to sleep.

feelinlucky · 17/12/2013 19:52

He has his first injection tomorrow night. Is there anything I should be mindful of?

OP posts:
cozietoesie · 17/12/2013 19:57

Not really. Bad reactions are really pretty rare so just remember that he'll likely be a bit sleepy, may be slightly off his food etc for a day or two.

Good luck with him.

Thanks cozie. That was really helpful.
