Nimue is not a super-cuddly kitty. She comes around for treats and most mornings and evenings, she’ll curl up next to me on the bed if I’m watching tv or listening to a book on tape. Very occasionally she’ll actually climb into my lap for cuddles.
But if I want to guarantee her attention, all I need to do is read a book. Every single time. Doesn’t matter if I’m upstairs or downstairs, sitting on the sofa or laying on my bed. I’ve seen her sitting in the back window watching me when I read in the yard. She needs to be touching the book and preferably laying right on the book. She doesn’t like to be nudged off when I have to turn the page.
I know this isn’t unusual but nobody seems to know why they do this? Do kitties actually know how to read but can’t get the books off the bookshelf themselves?
What do you think?
