First of all, a little about Bebe for those of you who haven’t met him before. If you scroll back a few posts I posted some photos of him inside on the sofa for the first time, something he never does. Because well basically Bebe is an old tom cat who got neutered and turned into this big soft loveable thing. He still doesn’t really get on with other cats but he adores people and always wants strokes and attention although he's still a little unsure of some things. Most people get sick of this after a while and ignore him. Me on the other hand has to make a fuss of him every time I see him. He does a great puss in boots impression from Shrek, I just can’t resist those eyes!
This is stage one, when you sit down he comes and sits next to you be it on the floor or on a bench he just comes and sits right by you and looks at you saying "stroke me, stroke me"! So for a while you stroke him and he's quite content and enjoying himself.
Next however he wants to get a bit closer but he's not quite sure enough yet to sit on you properly so he juts puts his front legs on you and keeps his bum firmly on the ground! However, if you keep up the stroking and making a fuss of him this happens...
Bebe sits on your knee! I think the thing with this is he needs a lot of sustained attention to get to the point where he wants to sit on you and most people aren't fool enough to do it. Me on the other hand is far too soft and can't help but make a huge fuss of him all the time.
Also thank you to everyone who has taken the time to comment on the previous post, it means a lot to me as it's the first time I've attempted something like that. And lets be honest now, we all love comments don't we!
