This first hand experience I'm getting with canine and feline companionship is eye opening (meaning I'm getting even less sleep than usual).
With three cats around my own house- there usually is a cat around me no matter what I'm doing. But it's not like they are always looking for my attention. That isn't the case with Kurbie and Torii (especially Torii). Seems like no matter what they are doing, they expect me to be engaged with them. If I should happen to not be paying attention to them they will often go to the back door and ring the bell indicating they want to go outside. If I ignore that they'll tend to irritate each other causing me to break up the ruckus. I'm quite enjoying my time with them but I think they have confirmed that I am indeed a cat person.
