Don't Leave by TeaPhotography Don't Leave by TeaPhotography
Preparing to leave for that emergency family trip to Tucson back in January [yes I'm behind in sharing work]...

And whenever Jikan, knows I'm going to be gone longer than a full day, he'll do all kinds of things involving laying across my bag/s or sitting directly on top of the shoes I'm going to wear out the door, and he'll just sit there... adamant about it.

He really can't stand it, he's a very very sensitive cat.
Sha-sha, though having one extremely sweet side, is just completely different when it comes to that. She realizes it later, and shows it after the fact. Jikan is quite intuitive in every moment. :nod: :heart:^.^

Oh my goodness! Lol. My cat does that all the time. We joke about how she'd rather be with our shoes than with us, which is sometimes true. Cats and their funny little personalities ^.^

LOL! I just saw this comment, cause I doing a project and thinking about this one to include in it... :aww:

It's so true! About half my cats just love my shoes... and I can't think why they would like shoes. Ewwy! ;) :giggle:

But this is back when we only had Jikan (and I think Sha-Sha, too) and we didn't have a lot of cats to go by... yet!

You are so right, they are so funny, aren't they!

On occasion, I will have to run in my apartment to get something and will set my jacket on the couch. Earl Grey, who is much bigger than picture on the left now, will envelope my jacket, so I have to remove him to leave. They want us to stay a bit longer. Truly gifts.

He is so clever! It's great when you have someone who feels you and breathes together with you.

:aww: A cutie! I've had cats like that. One Siamese would jump into my suitcase and refuse to get out.

He looks so human in his expression! I love cats and this image speaks for itself! Very cute!

It's like he's guarding your shoes, preventing you from leaving... so adorable and so touching. :)
