Re: Whiny cat
I agree with Heidi. When I get home at night from my classes, Nefertiti is always ready for a conversation, and if I don't talk back she will continue to talk to me. As long as I look at her and say a few things like "Hey honey, how was your day?" "Oh really?" "Is that so?" "Tell me about it." she will quiet down after a little bit.
She sometimes also will say something from the other room, and I will call out and say "I'm in here" so that she knows where I am, and that usually stops the meowing and talking from other rooms.
