Cats’ tendency to sit on books

Do you ever find yourself settling down with a good book, only to have your furry feline friend plop down right on top of it? Cats seem to have a natural inclination to sit on books, whether you’re trying to read them or not. But why do they do this? One reason could be that cats are drawn to objects that hold your attention. By sitting on your book, they are essentially saying, “Pay attention to me instead!” Another possibility is that cats are attracted to the warmth and scent of the paper and ink. If you’re a book lover who also happens to be a cat parent, you may have experienced this behavior firsthand. While it can be frustrating at times, it’s important to remember that your cat is just seeking comfort and closeness with you. To prevent your cat from sitting on your books, try providing them with their own cozy spot to lounge in while you read. A soft blanket or cat bed near you may entice them to stay off your literary treasures. Remember, a happy cat makes for a happy reading experience!
