I'm hoping someone here is familiar with kitty behavior. Basically, my cat will not leave my side. No matter what I do-she's there, even when I go to take a shower she jumps in (seriously) Also, her tail is always puffed up like she's frightened, which would make sense why she needs to be on my ass all the time.
However, I'm out of the apartment most of the day. She doesn't scratch the furniture, always uses the litter box, basically any other defiant or "I'm scared to be alone" behavior she does not show while I'm gone.
Why can't my damn cat leave me alone for 10 minutes??
