Some people say that cats only like people because of the food we give them. Maybe there are such cats about but Target is not one of them.
When I was making tea this morning, Target rubbed up against my ankle and said, "Meep," meaning, "I'm hungry". While I prepared a bowl of chopped chicken liver, he rubbed and purred and purred and rubbed.
When I put the bowl on the ground, he ignored it. Instead of going to his breakfast, he rolled over on my feet, purred and demanded a cuddle.
We cuddled and fuzzed and purred for ten minutes. Then I had to tell him I had to go upstairs to the office. When I put him down, Target got set to come with me. I had to remind him to eat his breakfast.
Target was starving. He bolted down his food and then came rushing upstairs into the office. He's now sitting pretty, purring at me and squeezing his eyes to send me cat kisses.
Opportunistic cats? Not that I know of!
