I think it goes both ways, she lets me know when she has had enough and I put up with her crazy antics. Sometimes when I want to cuddle her, she just wants to be off running around, but she will tolerate me picking her up and hugging her.
In turn, I let her do what she wants. Like using my arm as a body pillow when we are sleeping, or my lap as her cushion when I am trying to have dinner.
She has it pretty good I think. I clean her litter box on command and will hand feed her on occasion. My friends already joke with me that they won't cat sit for me if I am ever out of town.
