This is my little Buddy, Sissy Cat!! She is 5 years old, and we've had her since she was 6 weeks old, so she really thinks she is people. Can't call her a guard cat, but she does let me know when someone is here which comes in really handy with my hearing disability. If I'm in a different room she'll come running in there and look at me with concern, so I know I better check. Every evening she has to lay in my lap usually just for a few minutes, then goes to find her own spot. Amazing how attached you can get to these little animals!
