I'm sitting at my desk.
Lucy is sitting next to me. 
We are eye to eye.
Lucy - MeOW!  (she's yelling)
Me - Lunch will be in an hour.
Lucy - MeOW!
Me - You will have to be patient.
Lucy - Swooosh!
Me - Hey!  Don't hit me!

I don't suppose you can turn your back on them and do the "ignore" thing when they're acting outrageously like you can do dogs.
"In order to really enjoy a dog, one doesn't merely try to train him to be semihuman. The point of it is to open oneself to the possibility of becoming partly a dog." Edward Hoagland
"Thorns may hurt you, men desert you, sunlight turn to fog; but you're never friendless ever, if you have a dog."

Actually that's a valid training technique for things like biting and scratching in cats, especially kittens. Especially kittens who have been taken away from their mothers and litter mates too young or orphaned :)

Came home tonight.  Emptied the stuff, from my pockets, onto the counter.  I had a few coins.  Arrows swatted one coin at a time to the floor.  After one would stop rolling, he would move onto the next one.  It was funnny.  Kitty hockey. 

It was probably more funny to him.... to watch ME have to go get the coins.

Came home from a 4 day trip last night.

Babee was ecstatic, as most dogs are.   :-*

Teaka and Belle were actually the first ones to demand scritches & cuddles.   HeadButt
Pippen tattled on everyone, telling me aaalllll about it.   dramaqueen
Loki sulked, because he was not the first to get cuddles...   violingif   but he eventually came around. 

For the rest of the night, I had an entourage.  Any room I went to, they all followed me in.   whatimiss
Teaka even tried to help me unpack my stinky clothes.   stickouttongue
meow meow meow meow meow meow? -woof!
Translation: "I can has my raw food? -please!"

I call that Gravity Experiments.  I too would have enjoyed watching the action!

I knew a cat who would punish her people for days after they came back from being away.

Like yours, I used to have one who would sit with her back to me for a few hours, and another who had to wind around me for hours telling me all about everything I missed. But this was not from being away for a number of days, since I never go away.  This was from any time I was gone longer than 8 hours.  ;D

FMM... what a wonderful welcome home!  Have to say, I love the coming home greeting (or not) that I receive, when being gone for a while.  Although my leaving has to be for much longer than 8 hours, MC.

As always, I fed the cats before I fed myself.  I needed a quick lunch so grabbed a 3 oz can of albacore tuna.  I had to take it outside on the porch to open it and eat it.  Even so, they mobbed me when I came back in.

Usually, I use those cans of tuna as a 'to go lunch', taking it with me and eating it elsewhere, so the cats are spared any feelings of deprivation.  But I was hungry and needed something quick.

They were probably calling you bad names, for not sharing!

Yeah, they never get fish, but boy they seem to love the smell of it. That's why I usually only eat it in lunches when I am taking my lunch with me.  I don't really like tuna fish, but I keep those 3 oz cans of albacore handy for when I need I quick high protein lunch. I just eat it straight from the can. Somehow I manage to choke it down.

A small-ish lizard got into the house yesterday.  Our red boy caught it ...and ate the entire thing.  It was kinda cool, but gross at the same time.  Apparently he was taught some hunting skills, before he came to live with us.
