Does it always seem as if your cat insists on lounging on whatever paper or magazine you’re reading? Or perhaps your cat loves sitting on your desk right in front of the computer monitor? Maybe even lounging on the keyboard? Do you get up to go get a drink of water and come back to find your cat has taken up residence on whatever product you’re working on? Is your cat just showing an interest in the same reading material that you do? Not quite, but as baffling as this behavior may seem, there is a simple explanation.
Cats Pay Attention
Your cat has incredible senses and can easily figure out where your focus is directed. He sees you staring at a paper or at the monitor and all your attention is directed at that object so he assumes if he sits on it or directly in front of it he will then be the center of your attention. Cats are also attracted to movement, so your kitty may become fascinated with watching the cursor dark around the monitor, or maybe it’s the movement of your pen as you write on the paper.
