Some of our pet lovers may remember that we got a kitten named Jack in July of 2012. I came in here bragging about how dang cute he was (he's a handsome devil). And then I came in here whining that he doesn't love me enough. Some of you gave me some good advice and I did follow it as best I could. So, I wanted to let you know that Jack is almost 2.5 years old now and our relationship is in a good place. We're more accepting and understanding of each other and our styles of affection. He now comes to me for cuddles a couple of times a day (still on his terms) and allows me to pick him up more. And I give him more space and don't coddle him with the high pitched crazy cat lady gibberish. He sleeps with me more often than he used to (I cheated, I got a faux fur pillow case and throw). He's even started doing some cute things he used to only do with my husband. Thanks to everybody who gave me advice on this. What I've learned from this is that nobody finds desperate neediness attractive, not even cats.
