Suffer, puny human

Today, I've realized my cat only comes into my room to stare out the window for like two or three minutes before leaving. I have insomnia, so I wouldn't mind having him nearby, but this is unfortunately the only time he wants nothing to do with me. FML

Expecting attention from a cat is such a rookie mistake. The pet you wanted was a dog.

Cats have personalities. Some are more affectionate than others. Usually they respond to a degree how they have been treated. Treat them well and they like being around you. Let them think they are the alpha of the home (the one in charge) and they can become difficult. Also cats go through times when they are playful, when they are “hunting”, and when they want to be left alone. When I was a boy Mom had a cat that would get the “rips” every night usually between 7 and 8 PM when it would get a wild look in its eyes, run around the room, up the curtains and back down the other side - followed by laying around and panting until it had recovered. It could be your cat was hunting or checking things out and had no time for socialization at the time. I have lived with and owned cats and dogs (one at a time). Dogs tend to be somewhat more social, but I have had affectionate cats and one that was more “aloof”.

Dogs tend to be somewhat more social, but I have had affectionate cats and one that was more independent. Don’t expect a cat to be a dog or vice versa. But there are differences between individuals and differences n how they react at different times of the day or night.
