Ahhh, Dobby. So named because of the bemusing skull-diameter-to-ear-size ratio as a kitten. He’s always been lovey but a bit shy when it comes to laps. In the last few months, he’s started coming to me more and more for loving, pawing my chest, nuzzling my beard, etc- then settling down on a leg for a nap.
I haven’t had a really good lap cat since Shadow died many years ago. Excellent- what is more sublime, more soothing, more perfect than a cat asleep on your lap?
<Channeling the spirit of Guru Singh Khalsa>You say that your kitten is turning into a lap cat, by gum. I question the accuracy of this. Where would a kitten get gum?</Channeling the spirit of Guru Singh Khalsa>
Oh for a simple lap cat… We live with a “happy dancing”, head-butting, pillow-walking attention whore. Would that she’d content herself with curling up and sleeping close by. No, wait, she does that - usually on *my * side of the bed between my legs and the edge of the mattress, effectively trapping me, lest I disturb her…
Cartooniverse, how long have you had Dobby? My mother’s latest cats, ones she’s had since Mother’s day and late June, are not very affectionate. I’m wondering if it’ll change, since she’s a lap cat sort of person, but the cats aren’t cooperative.
Heh. That was me. Interesting that it flashed on the loading page. :dubious:
FCM, she looks distressed because you’re wearing green and white panties. Woooooooooooooo !!!
Elfkin, I used to have him up on my shoulder as a kitten. After he would paw my chest and belly, he’d crawl up onto my shoulder and drool. I know. Adorable. Be patient, Momkin. Dobby is about 3 years old now, maybe 4. Only in the last 6 months or so does he come to me frequently for loving. Now that I am working at home 75% of the time, he appears at least once an hour for some lap time and petting.
