As mentioned in previous posts orbit likes to greet me when I come home from work. I like to chat with my wife about our respective days when I first get in, and orbit provides the background music, which usually grows in volume the longer we talk.
As much as his usual tone is that of a gruff, crusty old bugger he's really quite the softy. He waits impatiently while my wife and I talk, and then when I do finally pick him up he'll usually settle right onto my left shoulder. We'll walk around, and he'll sniff at the cupboards, walls, shelves or whatever I stand near, as if it's the first time he's noticed it.
The other night we performed our usual routine, only this time, when I hefted him onto my shoulder he laid his head down against my back and just kind of hung out that way, enjoying the ride as I walked around the apartment.
