Cats are rather independent, they usually pick one person as theirs. The rest just live there.
My friend TKK acquired a grown female cat from an older lady who had to find her a home. This cat immediately decided TKK's hubby, Super Dave was her person. She would rub on him and purr and love him to pieces. She just ignored TKK except to ask for food. That was four years ago.
Seems the cat made a change, now she has picked TKK as her person. I think it may have something to do with who fed her.
Clod does not want the responsibility of a pet. So he just gets daily updates on my cat Top Cat.
TC is a ten year old Himalayan who weights about 18 pounds and is quite a character. He used to jump up on my screen door when he wanted in. You can immagine how rough that 18lbs. was on my screen door.
After replacing the screen twice in 4 months, I decided I needed to do something. I got a little bell and hung it on the bottom of the door. The next time he started to jump up on the screen, I went out and did not let him in. I took his front paw and made him ring the bell,
I told him "ring the bell" TC. He just looked at me. I told him if you want to go in ring the bell.
I took his paw and rang it again, and said oh "good boy come in". I let him in. Later that day we did it again. After that he rang the bell without me! Now he rings when he wants to come inside. He also rings his bell when company comes up, while they ring the regular door bell.
