    Does anyone else's cat "romance" them? This is the term we have affectionately coined for standing on your chest and rubbing their faces on your face, and glasses in my case.

    It really cute and wondered if this was "normal" behaviour. I have Lola and Mani, mother and son, and they both do it. Mani can be quite forcefull with his romancing and tends to knock my glasses off if I don't keep a hold of them.

    Also when they do this they both fluff their tails up and Mani fluffs his head hair up, is this normal? Because I thought that the fluffy tail thing was when they were startled or frightened?

    My Dizzy does that, usually when she wants something though.

    Thats maybe why they are like a tag team..."mammy's mine"..."no, mammy's mine".

    I must stink of them, I especially like the nose dripples on my glasses, yum!
