    I was watching Formula 1 racing practice sessions with the cat today. She was with me in the recliner, under the blanket and between my legs. Every time I got up she'd take over the chair. When returning I'd just pick her up, sit down, put the blanket on and she'd just stay. No way I could do that with the other cat!

    Our boy Jackson can be like that and be stubborn about it, too. When I get up, he often slides right into the warm spot. When I get back, he sometimes moves when I ask him to but there are times I can just about sit on him and he won’t budge.

    If I move Min when I get up, when I come back, she's in my spot. If I come into the room for any reason after having been gone for any length of time, if she's in the room, she's either in the window or in my spot. She's decided it's the best spot in the house.

    I have two computer desks with office chairs in different rooms. Our younger cat can detect, no matter where she is, when I've stepped away from my current chair, and she races to it to occupy it and gain control. She has "her own" chair just beside mine, but that doesn't matter. I'm sure it's not that she wants the chair, but would rather play the game. She does like to strop her claws on the leather of either chair.l
