Question by : My cat is VERY needy? What can i do? He’s driving me insane?
I have 2 cats, and have had B-Boy (The eldest one, the very clingy one, he’s going to be 13 next April) and i have a Siamese cat named Milo (He’s 11 and is good, acts like a normal cat, sleeps most of the time.)
This question is concerning the eldest cat, B-boy.
I have had this cat sense i was a little girl, We always spoiled our cats with food, toys, love, attention, ect..
But he acts like he’s been abused in the past (He has not though! I’ve had him sense he was a tiny kitten). He’ll sit at the bottom of the stairs, cry as loud as he can (it literally sounds like a torturing cry, it’s horrible. But it also sounds very pathetic at the same time. He knows if he cries loud enough one of us will get tired of hearing it and come to go pet him) to get my brothers attention so that my brother can get up and go pick him up and cuddle him constantly. The cat will meow so loud, i know that he’s just trying to get everyone’s attention. If we don’t go pet him immediately after he starts meowing very loudly he’ll speed run across the house like a maniac (it kinda looks like a temper tantrum).
He’ll scratch all the furniture to gain me, my brother or my mothers attention. He wont STOP until you look at him. When he’s scratching the furniture he’s looking directly at me, then when i say something he stops and hops into all my family members laps, he’s a REALLY HEAVY fat cat so when he lays down for too long my leg will get numb. Once i take him off my lap after an hour of petting him, praising how cute of a cat he is…then when i put him down… the whole cycle repeats itself.
1. He’ll cry at the bottom of the steps. If no one approaches him immediately he’ll cry louder and run like a maniac across the whole house, it gets very loud because he’s a moderately heavy cat.
2. He’ll scratch the furniture more
3. Constantly hop in our laps
4. I let him sleep and rest on nap while i pet him for an hour, sometimes 2 hours!
5. Once i put him down…like i said, the process just repeats over and over and over….
(P.S : Idk if this matters but i do feed my cats everyday, change their litterbox 2 times a week and give them fresh water everyday! Their eating area/restroom is very clean! I take good care of my pets)
Is B-Boy simply just spoiled rotten? Or do you think it might be a little cat “mental” problem?
I have never abused him or any other animals, i just don’t know why he’s like this. He’s so damn clingy that he’ll hop up in my lap when I’m eating, on the laptop, trying to do homework, relaxing. If i put him back down if I’m busy he comes back about a minuet later and just keeps trying to hop into my lap over and over and over…I love him to DEATH but sometimes he drives me fucking insane!
What should i do? Please help…
(P.S- My cat has had this behavior for years! It’s not just a random thing where he was just randomly clingy to me for a day, it’s been years! He’s always been this way, except now it’s getting worse and worse.)

maybe he really does have a mental problem? or that’s just his personality, he probably loves being spoilt so when he doesn’t get what he wants, he throws a temper tantrum.. he sounds hilarious but i could imagine that would get annoying..
What do you think? Answer below!
