Same thing this morning, I was looking for her, couldn't find her in her usual spots, then boom!..there she was sitting in front of the tv on the ent. center.
She's such a weirdo sometimes!!!
Sounds familiar. Here's a helpful suggestion for when you want to find your cat.... spend an hour or so looking in every possible nook & cranny while calling out the cats name. When that inevitably fails to locate said cat, go back to the starting point, stop, turn around and look down.... missing cat will be sitting there staring up at you with a "I'm right here, what's the problem?" look on its face.

you're so right!!! They know we're looking for them!! It's so cute when she "hides", she gets real low and small, I pretend I don't see her and keep calling for her, lol. And she even knows the sound of us getting the laser out from a drawer! She immidately starts looking at the ground for it!!

When mine is hungry, he gives me what I call the "kitty death stare" - he will not stop staring at me until I feed him. I give him credit, because he seems to have learned that I do not like when he screetches at me when he is hungry, so he has changed strategy and he will just sit there staring directly at me until I get up to feed him.

Kitty Death Stare...... also known as 'Starving Cat Face', which all felines are quite good at. Some cats I've lived with pretty much turned it into an art form.

I just shake the treat bag. Works like a charm.

Lol, oh yeah.

Our cat often sits up straight and just stares. I told DH as long as he's not licking his chops....

Last night, we are in bed watching a video. (We do this every night.) Many nights Josette will come up to me and start "nursing" on my side and I will pet her. Most of the time I don't even look at her since I am watching the video. But last night I looked at her and she was staring at me. Naturally, I thought of this thread. lol. I just stared back. She stared at me for probably about a minute or two before she went down to the foot of the bed where she sleeps every night. She was still staring at me for just a bit from the foot of the bed before she settled in for the night.

Just a thought and possible explanation, We amuse them.


Superior creatures enjoy watching inferior creatures.

If you have a four-footed Meowian in your house. Accept the fact, they own us, we are their pets.

Yes, one of my kitties will stare intently at me for hours if she wants something. Typically she just wants attention. When I was down with the flu I didn't want the cats on me because I was so congested, so she sat there staring. Everytime I reached for water or Kleenex she would meow in excitement and try to rub on my hand. She does the same thing if I'm eating something tasty. If I'm busy doing something and standing up (cooking, drinking coffee) she will stare and meow every time I make eye contact and when she gets tired of waiting she will launch herself and hope I catch her. She really loves people

Josette will do that night (the only time she really comes up to me). I rarely sleep through the night and when I wake up sometime in the wee hours, I usually start tossing & turning. Josette knows I'm awake and will come up behind me. Normally, I will reach my hand around to pet her but if I don't do this after a few moments or so, I hear this faint little "Peep." She is telling me, "I'm here so pet me."
