As long as I've had KC (nearly seven years now), I've yet to completely understand her. Just when I have her pegged as a cat that longs for solitude, she has taken to sleeping near me whenever I'm home.
This is her latest favorite resting spot -- a folding chair I set up next to my desk chair. I even caught her lying there while my fiancee Sherry was on the computer earlier today. She hasn't been that close to her for any protracted amount of time ever.
I guess a cat can change its habits.
