We have a cat, Domino, that is just like that. She loves to be petted, never gets tired of it, but try and pick her up and hold her, forget it! She isn't into that at all. Some cats never learn to love being held, it just depends on the cat.LadyGrey said:LittleWill doesn't like to be picked up or held, but he adores attention and being petted etc. Is there any way to get him used to hugs & being picked up? He's only 10 months old, am hoping I can change behaviour before he gets too old. Thanks for any tips!
