Russian Blues aren’t normally thought-about clingy cats, and through her adolescent years, Olga loved her alone time extra. Nevertheless, at the same time as a kitten, she didn’t prefer it after I left for work. I made the error of claiming goodbye and rubbing her head, which might end in her latching onto my arm and biting me. I assumed it was humorous and endearing, however I ended the follow after I observed a number of tiny holes within the sleeves of my winter jacket.
Now, I say goodbye from a distance, however generally, she chases me to the door and tries to hit me on the leg. Since I work from home now, Olga turns into extra upset after I depart. Within the morning, after consuming breakfast, she wanders into the visitor room (her room) and sleeps below the sofa. After two hours, she comes into my workplace, meows, and jumps in my lap to take a nap.
She naps for a couple of minutes after which sleeps on the windowsill or chair close to my desk. She likes being in the identical room however doesn’t have to be continuously touching me like my earlier cat. Leaving her alone for brief intervals isn’t an issue, however she will get confused when she is aware of I’m getting ready for a visit.
Getting ready for Holidays
Besides the vacuum cleaner, the suitcase is likely one of the objects most despised by felines. Previously, after I pulled my suitcase out, Olga would run below the mattress and conceal. I’ve discovered that protecting my suitcase in the lounge for a number of days earlier than my journey helps. As you may see from one of many photographs, Olga stored her distance when she first noticed the suitcase.
After I positioned her favourite toys close to the suitcase, she relaxed and finally rubbed her head in opposition to it. She didn’t appear confused after I packed the suitcase a number of days earlier than my journey, however she used to get upset after I packed it the evening earlier than I left.
Making Time for Olga
If I’m not paying sufficient consideration to Olga, she has several ways of letting me know. She spends most of her day napping, however when she’s able to play, Olga assaults inanimate objects (or me) if I ignore her. She is going to run to a window and seize the strings on the blinds or drag one of many paper balls from below the sofa and hit it in my path.
A number of months in the past, after I was studying a ebook and ignoring her, she hit me on the top with a paper ball. Normally, she’s not that exact when she dribbles the ball on the ground, however I assume it was a fortunate shot. You’ll be able to’t all the time cease what you’re doing and play along with your cat, however I attempt to play along with her every day, particularly when she has a burst of vitality.
It makes her blissful and retains my blinds and different belongings from getting destroyed. Though she’s not clingy like a Siamese cat, she’s turn into extra affectionate and needy since I’ve spent extra time at house. By setting apart time each day to play along with her and being extra strategic with my trip preparations, Olga doesn’t get as confused or assault me as typically.
