Hey everyone, OP here :) Just to clear a few things up, she is a street kitten that I just rescued about a week ago, and she had been attacked and beaten up by other cats quite a few times when she was out on the streets, so I'm thinking this lovely new behaviour is either a) she feels safer having me "protect" her while she eats, or b) she's just realized it's really nice to have company nearby and she's taking advantage since she was always alone before. I'm sure she will grow out of it as she gets more comfortable and used to being here :) To the people saying I should control her food better- I feed her twice a day, but she prefers to graze rather finish it all at once. And since this is the healthier eating habit, I will not force her to change to a less healthy eating habit. To the people telling me to ignore her- can't do it. I'm so thrilled that she actually trusts me, and I feel so bad that she was on her own for so long that I can't bring myself to ignore her for any reason just yet. To all the other YDI comments- I rescued a gorgeous, friendly little kitty from a probably short and horrible life on the streets, being attacked by other cats, and in return I got a lovely cuddly companion. Do I deserve that? Absolutely. :)

I want to say YDI. Don't indulge your cat in behavior that you don't like. Or if you will , don't feed her more than twice a day.
Thank you, #26 :) I do only feed her twice a day, but she doesn't eat it all at once. Nothing I can really do about that. Besides, it's healthier to graze and eat small amounts throughout the day so I'm certainly not going to encourage her to adopt a less healthy eating style!
I would get rid of that cat. Cats are suppose to be low maintenance.
