Meh.  All this, "What is your pet really thinking?" stuff is crap until we can both ask them and understand the reply, or we've gotten brain scanning down to the point it's basically mechanical telepathy.  Until then it's someone sending telegraphs based on smoke signals as interpreted by a drunk dude with myopia

My biggest takeaway from this article "miaows". What's up with that?  British spelling of "meow"?

Cats are individuals just like people.  Some cats like to be picked up and cuddled, some don't.  Some like to interact a lot with their human, some are more aloof.  Some are very vocal, some are very quiet.  I don't like any article that says cats like this, cats don't like that.  Just like people, it depends on the cat.

Kitten playing fetch.

FETCH!!


I had a cat that played fetch.  It was fun in the beginning, but she wanted you to throw the toy about 500 times in a row.  If you fake threw a toy, she would find another toy, put it at your feet and stare at you until you threw it.  Once I frustration, I hid every cat toy in the house.  She disappeared for awhile and came back with a sock and put it at my feet.

That one in the video will haul her favorite toys up to the living room every night.  We started tracking which toys, in which order to see if she had a favorite.  There were definitely preferred toys.  I find the toys that made it to the living room in the evening end up back bedside on my slippers in the morning.

My weirdo purrs while I hold him and then "eat his belly".

Yes. He lets me bare my teeth as I go face first on his chest/belly. Only cat I've ever known where I would even think about trying it.

That came about because I'm allergic to cats, but not this one. To test I would literally rub him on my face. No reaction. Not bad for one who just showed up at the front door one night and then moved in.

Some cats just naturally produce (comparatively at least) very little dander and are ok for people with milder cat allergies, sounds like you randomly got one

I took it as a sign. That's generally how I end up with critters. They just kinda happen.
