Bandit, like many cats, has certain protocols which must be followed before she, for example, will sit on Sue’s stomach when Sue in lying down in bed. We have a certain small blanket, called the Bandit Blankie, which must be on Sue’s stomach first before Bandit will get on. If Sue forgets to put the blankie on first, Bandit will get agitated and pace back and forth until it is put in its proper place.
Further, if I pick up Bandit and put her on Sue’s stomach, she will get off, walk around a bit, then get back on. The decision needs to be hers.
