    Look contrary to popular opinion cats like people and hanging out. they get lonely. so hang out with ya boy Earl

YES. I own a couch, but I sit on the floor in front of it with my computer on my lap. I think this helped me bond with my cats. They can just walk up to me. My cats LOVE hanging out with me. Max will sit on the couch behind me, and every morning he sits by the door to get scratchies before I leave for work. Tess sleeps next to my pillow every night, and in the evenings she's always within reach, often on my lap. They are very social with me.

One thing you didn't mention: watch your cords. Max is a good boy, but Tess will chew cords. Especially the white Apple ones, but anything is fair game.

Yeah, my two cats try not to be obvious about it but both follow me around the house. Like, it's not just magic making them appear in whatever room I'm in after 5-10 minutes elapsed.

Zeke comes running to the door when I come home :) He sleeps next to me, sometimes on top of me, all that good stuff. Ruth is a little more reserved but not too much. She gets very friendly in the morning. I am convincing her that she likes laps too.
