Why is my cat following me


Why is my cat following me around like a zombie?"

Cat zombie? She doesn't know what you're talking about.

But if you are talking about your cat acting like an actual zombie, it's a pretty common pet problem. Cats are smart, like, really smart. We give them all of the brainpower they could possibly want. But if they want to play with you, they want to play like a normal cat. They don't want to play like you're watching an action movie. They want to play like it's "real life." And sometimes, playing real life can be a little bit weird. Like, when I'm playing on the computer and my cat comes and sits in my lap and is just being a total cat (like an angel-like, "I love you" cat, or a cat who is always saying, "Are you okay, are you okay, are you okay?"), and I'm like, "Uh-huh, what's going on here?" My cat might respond with a little "meow" or it might just be like, "I love you" and rub its head against my leg.

There's nothing wrong with playing on the computer or with video games or with watching TV or with a book or on the phone. But sometimes when you are being a real "loser," when you are being the dork of the house, sometimes your cat will come and sit in your lap and say, "Hey, dork, do you want to play?" Sometimes you think, "I don't really want to play, what the hell, why would my cat come and sit in my lap?" But then your cat starts rubbing its head against your leg and that's a sign that you should. You should stop being a dork and have some fun. You should stop being the dork of the house and have a little fun.

When it comes to play-fighting with your cat, there's nothing wrong with being the dork. When you can be the dork, your cat likes that you are the dork. It lets you be the dork because then your cat feels like you will have a bit of fun. So, you are happy. And your cat is happy. And sometimes a cat and a person and a dog and a dog can be the dork of the house. And then everyone's happy. And that is okay.

P.S. Of course, sometimes when the dog and the cat are fighting it's okay to say, "Hey, who wants to go in the yard?"
