That even a cat that’s been known to trip people in order to get attention has her limits:
This is a cat who will scream bloody murder if she thinks she’s all alone in the house even though she’s just a room away. She insists on sleeping on or near one of us or the other cat. If she can’t sit on your lap, she’ll sit under your feet. She’s so bad that to get her to eat, we’ve sometimes had to “escort” her to the kitchen and watch for a minute or so.
