Purcey is a strange cat. When we first adopted him as a kitten he absolutely hated men. He would hiss, swat and cower away from any man that would come over. We would lock him in my room when we had company had to make sure he had a female vet. Until I started dating my Hubby.
He was the only man I had ever seen Purcey even hang around let alone hop right on his lap from day one and beg for petting all the time.
So when we got married and Purcey moved in with us Hubby became his favorite. Purcey went from being my cat and loving me to completely ignoring me! Seriously, he ignores me when I am home all day! I find him and pet him, but he gets bored of me and walks away LOL! Then comes out as soon as the Hubby's car pulls up and rubs all over him and meows acting like I have been ignoring him all day.
The Hubby jokes around when he picks Purcey up and cuddles with him. "Oh you poor cat. Emily is so mean to you and ignores you all day. You poor mistreated kitty."
If I am sitting on the couch he will hop up and sit on the other end. If
Hubby is sitting on the couch Purcey is on his lap almost before he is
Another thing that I had never seen Purcey do before the Hubby, they talk to each other. Hubby meows at Purcey and Purcey meows back. It can go on for 45 min! So cute and funny!
Anyway, about 7DPO/IUI Purcey's attitude about me changed drastically. He stared following me around the house and rubbed against my legs. When I sat on the couch he would be on my lap right away even if the Hubby was sitting too. He was back to doing all the old things he did when he was a kitten. Licking my nose and ears and rubbing his face in my hair. He is so desperate to be on my lap that when I am at the computer he will squeeze himself under the desk on my lap and if he can't do that he will stand on his hind legs with his front paws on the arm of my chair and lick my arm.
We don't let him in our room at night because he usually knocks things off our dresser, so he has gotten used to it and never really came into our room even if the door is open during the day. Now, any chance he gets he is in the room following me or on the bed cuddling with me. When the Hubby opens the door in the morning Purcey is in bed cuddling with me in seconds!
At first we had no idea what the heck had changed in him. It was so strange for him to be acting this way. As soon as it was confirmed that I was pregnant we guessed that must be it. I had read something a long time ago that animals can totally sense hormone changes. I guess it's true!
I love having a super cuddly kitty again!
