My two year old cat, Chloe, has been with my FI and I since she was 4 months old. She is my child and I am her mama. Any time I am sitting anywhere and there is room for her to sit on me, she is there. She even tries to sit on my lap at the dinner table. Chloe is currently cuddled in my lap right now.
As her mama, I think I'm her favorite. FI will be home an entire day while I am out and not once will Chloe sit in his lap or curl up on the couch next to him. It makes him very sad that she doesn't cuddle with him the same way she does with me. I wish she would show him some of the same affection she shows me. She does sit with him sometimes, I think it's not as many times as FI would like. I've read that cats pick their favorite person and that's just that.
Anyone else have experience with their pet picking favorites between you and your FI/H/SO?
