I've lived with cats my whole life, and one thing I have definitely noticed is that they do tend to bond with one person more strongly, to a greater or lesser degree, than with other people.
When I was younger we temporarily homed my older sister's tewo cats as well as having two in the house already: Bob was the eldest and was affectionate with me and my stepdad but indifferent to everyone else; Polly was Bob's illegitmate daughter and absolutely hated me; Chico was one of my sister's cats and was pretty indifferent to me but loved my mom; and Bongo, my sister's other cat, absolutely adored me and wouldn't leave my side. The feeling was absolutely mutual.
Our current cat is quite affectionate towards me, perhaps slightly more so than anyone else. But, I do work from home, so I'm here all the time to give him the attention he is so utterly desperate for. He'll usually sleep on my side of the bed at night and sit with me in the morning while I read my Twitter feed. He also turns on all of the cute when strangers vome over, but he's terrified of kids.
Cats are wierd.
