Hello. I'm new here. I'm a cat lover too. We have a cat called Banjo. (He was our son's cat, and he named him after the game character, Banjo Kazooie). When our son left home, he couldn't take the cat into the rental house, so Banjo stayed with us.
Banjo tells my husband to go to bed every night. He starts work early in the morning, so needs to go to bed early. Around 8.30 pm, as my husband rises from his chair to prepare for bed, Banjo is already anticipating his every move. He walks to the doorway which leads to the passageway and sits there, staring intently at my husband. If he takes his time, Banjo starts meowing at him. When he finally heads toward the bedroom, Banjo accompanies him, jumping up onto the bed. He gets his head scratch and stroke, then when my husband gets into bed, the cat jumps off, returns to the living room and curls up in the newly-vacated chair!
Occasionally, if I'm sitting up late on a weekend on the computer, Banjo will sit nearby, and meow at me, trying to send me off to bed too!
