She needs to be close
The cats are getting used to me being around. Cat F likes to walk back and forth in front of my computer terminal, interrupting my work, until I grab her and cuddle her. That settles her until I put her down. Then she resumes pacing in front of me.
This continues until I pull a chair next to me and put her in it. Then she lays down and goes to sleep next to me.
She needs to be close. I need to remember that.
