When you're feeling down, Comfort Bun will give you hugs, pat you on the shoulder and say "there, there, it'll be alright." Comfort bun is a true squee hero.
When we first brought our kitty Squid home, we put him in the cat carrier for the car ride. I don't think I've ever seen a kitten so angry! He attacked the bars until I let him ride on my shoulder inside my jacket, and he was content the rest of the ride. Ever since, he seems to spend most of him time on my shoulder or my husbands.
