How cats pick their favorite person?

Every cat is different, so the appropriate response to your cat's meows and body language signs may include physical interaction, playtime, respecting their space, or (of course) food.

Do kittens get attached to one person?

In a nutshell, yes, a kitten can become too attached to its human companion. This over-dependence often results in destructive behaviors when the kitten's emotional needs become more than his caretaker can meet. Preventative measures by humans lead to a more mutually satisfying relationship when the cat is an adult.

Do kittens like being held?
