He always has to be where people are. I often spend time up on my bed, which is too high for him to jump onto. I don't really want him up there since he ends up taking up most of the bed and he sheds all over my sheets. He tries though. He jumps up to the edge and slides down with a thunk to the floor. He can do this for hours. Occasionally I spoil him by picking him up and putting him on my bed. He wants down after five minutes or so.
