The Second Most Needy Cat in the House

I always talk about how needy Chris is but Frankie is almost as needy. He is probably on my lap about half as much as Chris is but some of that difference is because when Chris sees Frankie on my lap he gets on my lap too and Frankie usually gets off, but not always.

What Frankie does that Chris doesn’t do is follow me around the house like a little puppy dog. Sometimes he even follows me in the bathroom.

If I close the bathroom door, he wants in even more.

The following seems to happen more often in our West Virginia home, which is significantly bigger than our Florida home. Sometimes I will go upstairs for something and then come right back down. I feel a little bad because then Frankie follows me up the stairs and then back down again. Chris is the one that needs the exercise, not Frankie.

You may recall this video I posted last January about our house. If you pay attention you can see Frankie following me around for a good portion of the inside tour. It is a 360 degree video so you need to move it around to see Frankie.

I should be clear that I’m not complaining. It is nice to be needed and Frankie is far less painful than Chris in his neediness.

    That photo of the two boys on your lap at the same time is so cute – “extreme togetherness” ! Love the video of the house – it’s huge and so interesting – fun to learn all the stories about the house from the neighbors!

    Hugs, Pam

      I love the content of the photo but the quality was lacking a bit. It was interesting learning about the house. My wife posted something about it on Facebook and a guy that lived here in the seventies emailed her a long description from memory of his experience here. He also included a drawing of the house and labeled each section as he described it. He is an architect and the house motivated him to become one.

          It certainly clears up some questions. We have a door on the second floor that is sealed. Someone said that there used to be a balcony or deck on the roof but it was removed in the eighties. He moved in around 1971 and questioned the purpose of the door. So it has been without a balcony for over fifty years.

    Ha, so funny when they crown onto one person like that! We’ve had that happen, and have experienced the little extra company in the bathroom as well.

    Our previous ginger tabby, MacKenzie, used to follow me everywhere. None of ours consistently follow me now. Calista Jo is the most apt to do so. Whoever said you could go to the bathroom alone?
