That is a cute cat.  But I think years of psychological thrillers have ruined this video for me.  A point of view shot + no talking + heavy awkward breathing = creepiness cliche.

Well, that was boring. I thought he'd be jumping up and down or something.

I'm guessing the guy was gone 20 minutes and the food dish was empty.

I've never seen a cat meowing at someone upon greeting them, before. This video must be fake.

:D

My daughter's cat gets just as excited whenever one of us comes home. Or gets out of bed in the morning. I'm sure it's pretty common behavior.

Cats love to have everything in its place, including the people they live with.

I get the same thing every day when I get home from work

/only there's a lot more purring and headbutting
//and she keeps on babbling at me until she gets fed

I come home after 3 days, and my cats just peek open one eye and mumble, "Where the fark have you been?"  Then they give me the cols shoulder until bedtime.

This version is much better, IMHO.

Same YT account, same cat, many welcome home.

I think this guy is out of breath because he had to run downstairs and turn the camera on in time. To film something that happens all the time.

I think that's a symptom of an indoor cat.It's inside alone and bored all day.

Indoor-Outdoor cats can entertain themselves more, so they don't quite act like that.

Hell, three days? My cat does this if I just got home from the grocery store!
 
2014-04-13 01:01:22 PM  
Meh. I have a pretty affectionate cat, but I used to have a bull terrier. It was a rare day that dog didn't get enthusiastic in this fashion:

Most bull terriers do this without being taught. Not many other breeds seem to bother.

When I had a cat, it was like, "Oh, you're home... meh"

I'm lucky if my cat will even hop down off his perch to acknowledge my arrival. Even then, he looks at me, yawns, and goes along his way.

My dogs on the other hand... go ape shiat. Of course, they go ape shiat when I return after three minutes from checking the mail.
 
2014-04-13 05:01:31 PM  
I had a cat who, if I was gone for a few days (even if she wasn't left alone), would go apeshiat when I came home. Meowing, frantically headbutting and rubbing on me while trembling. She was a bit co-dependent.

Now I have a dog, and... you know those videos of a soldier coming home from Iraq after 6 months on deployment and their doog looses their mind? That's every day when I come home from work. My dog is also a bit co-dependent.

I try and take care of my furry buddies the best I can.

Yup, those are born killers. You can see it in their cute little eyes.

Depends upon the cat, really.  I have known cats that did not care one bit whether or not a human was around, and I have known cats that definitely craved human attention and presence.  One cat I watched for my neighbors would claw me whenever I tried to leave the house, no matter how long I sat and played with him.

What you don't see is the cat killing the owner and making a cage out of his bones.

The G/F and I had long suspected this of our cat, but I had to set up a security camera to prove it... She'd lounge on the couch all day, and then as soon as she heard someone pull into the driveway she'd dash to the kitchen, gobble up all her food, and then meow piteously once we came in as if we had been letting her starve all day.

One of her many names was "Scam-arelle." Smart cat.
 
2014-04-14 06:05:33 AM  
My cat does the same, without the mewing, she sits upstairs in the window looking out for me and comes running down the stairs to greet me when I open the door. She then farks off and ignores me for the rest of the evening.
 
2014-04-14 06:31:10 AM  
My cats all do this when I have been gone for more than a few hours. Once I was in the hospital for 12 days. They went slightly insane when I came home. Thought I'd have to have them surgically removed.

Yet oddly, they vanish when anyone else shows up. Go figure.

I had a Jack Russell terrier that would get "the zooms" and go absolutely bonkers. Maybe it's just terriers in general.

It's animals in general. I call it "skibbling" in cats... charging around like their tails were on fire, up and down stairs. It's funny as heck to hear it happen on the floor above. I've even seen horses do it, every now and then they just take it into their head to gallop around the pasture like mad. (It's more impressive with horses than it is with cats.)

That cat doesnt give to shiats about this guy, hes just hungry lol.
