Do cats get less affectionate with age?
by Priyanka Singh
My nearly six month old cat has suddenly become less affectionate. She doesn't sleep with us or come in our lap the way she used to, and meows incessantly until we put her down if we are holding her.
In fact, she wouldn't even sleep close to us. I strove to lie beside her several times but she would walk away to sleep somewhere else, but always stays in the same room and comes to us only for food.
Last week we took her to the vet and everything is totally fine and she is eating, playing, and using her litter box normally. She is not spayed because my mum thinks she is still a *child* and thus too young for all that.
My sister is thinking of getting another cat (male) because she reckons males are far more affectionate and make far better pets.
We take her for a walk nearly every other night and she walks on a leash and comes whenever called upon just like my Alsatian.
