They feel attached to you (2/5)

Your cat wants to be close to you. They want to get involved in what you’re doing and establish a bond with you. Once they create an attachment style with you, it tends to become stable over time. This behavior toward their owner is still present during the cat’s adulthood, meaning that your cat sees you as its primary caretaker. Therefore, it is understandable that they love sitting on our laps, or even on our laptops too! (they want to be close to us during work, or that might be a distraction we can’t resist)

They are social animals (1/5)

When you’re not around, they may be stressed (3/5)
