We all know about velcro dogs- I've had 2 Bichons and they are the world's worst but velcro cats are possible too. Langley and Oscar have to be in a lap at all times, sit and watch us eat, bathe and even sit on the bath mat pawing at the shower door as if we have left them all alone. Going to the bathroom in private is impossible.

My 16 year old Stormy has always loved attention, but for the past couple of years or so he's really been clingy & demanding. When he's not eating, sleeping, or using the litter box, he wants to be in my lap. He's a very sweet & gentle old man and I give him as much lap time and petting as I can. He deserves it.

My 12yo Skipper is my velcro cat. At least she's the worst one. I'm hanging off the side of my bed now trying to type this while she is pushing up against me. I can't sit, stoop, lie down or anything without her attached to me. Years ago she disappeared for 23 days in my woods. I thought she was a goner. One day she showed up and has stuck like glue ever since. I wont even start about Pacman. He's my under the cover cat.

My mother recently took in a feral/stray, who she has now actually named "Velcro." So, I guess she knows what you're talking about!

As for my cats, the older two (Kona & Cyrus) are pretty independent... but the youngest one, Bindi, does like to be near me at almost all times. She particularly likes following me & the dog on our nightly walks, to the point where we've apparently become known around the neighborhood. I met one of my neighbors the other night, and he was like "oh, you're the girl who walks her dog AND cat! I was just telling my girlfriend about you." LOL

Absolutely! He suffers from separation anxiety when I leave him and is VERY demanding and high maintenance.

My beloved Boyfriend Cat liked to go on walks with us too. The funny thing is he would start crying something awful about half way through our walk and somebody, either me or my then boyfriend, now husband , would have to pick him up and carry him on our shoulder all the rest of the way home. It really was quite comical and we knew what would happen . That's one of the reasons why I married the guy. I figured anybody kind enough to carry a cat on his shoulder for a walk every evening was a good catch.

No. None of ours are Velcro cats. I think having each other for company is the reason but don't know for sure.

wow I thought I was watching a video of Pacman! Identical to him except Pacman is a smaller cat. But he does the same thing.
