Lap Time is Nap Time

Arthur rarely tries to sit on my lap. He'll lean against me if I'm sitting on the couch, but he rarely will climb into my lap and stay there. The few times Arthur has sat in my lap, he usually leaves after just a few minutes. Today was an exception.

I was sitting cross-legged on the floor giving Arthur a bellyrub and scratching behind his ears when he got up and went to sit in my lap. He curled up in my lap for about an hour and might still be there if I hadn't gotten sore and stood up.

He is such a happy boy! I'll bet if the pic had included your face, you were smiling too! :)
Thanks for the wonderful pix that bring a smile to my face too! My two kitties won't sit on my lap either, never have... but one of them sleeps with me, and the other purrs like a Harley Davidson! So I am blessed too!

There is such a sweet smile on his face and yours too I bet. We have 5 cats and only one will sit on me. The others will sit beside me but are definitely not lap kitties.

The boys love to cuddle in my lap. Thats one of my favorite things in the world, to relax and have one of the boys purring away in my lap.

I have two beloved female rescue cats. Lily was friendly and docile from the beginning; Rose was skittish and shy. One day, after 8 months, Rose jumped in my lap and stayed there. Now, nearly 4 years later, she is often in my lap. Over time, it might be the case that your lapnap cat gets ever more in your lap.

It's so great when rescued cats become affectionate. OUr stray is still skiddish, she doesn't like to be held. But she loves to be pet.

My cat is really, really cute. She loves to sit on my lap, especially when I am watching tv. She also loves to lick me and butt her head against me. She loves it when I scatch to cheeks. I love my cat!!!
