In having the new furry companion around, having a lap cat can be a good thing.
However, it can also go the other way, especially when I’m busy. I’m in the middle of working on something and the fur ball just jumps onto my lap. I don’t mind it doing this every once in a while, but how much affection is enough? This cat wants it all the time and will not take no for an answer.
So yes, I really do like the new cat. What I don’t like is its constant demand for attention. I can only give so much to it before I have to go and do something else. Can you go and make friends with the other cats in the house? Wait. You would just terrorize them and try to fight. Never mind.
*sigh* Okay. You can sit on my lap…When are you going to get off? I…I really need to be doing something else…That’s it. You’re getting off, whether you like it or not.
Ghost Muse: Sounds like the kitty’s pretty affectionate.
Pretty affectionate? She’s WAY too affectionate! It’s a good thing that she has four other people to share that with…
Ghost Muse: Oh. You work at 11:00? I’ll leave you be. Back to my book…
So like it or hate it, Lucy is a lap cat. And if you visit, she will try to get on your lap. Don’t fight it. That never works. Just keep petting her and listen to her purr.
Today’s high is going to be 73 degrees and the silver lining is today being Friday.
To those of you who live with a lap cat, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.
Muse: That scary Kyle is not around, is he? Don’t worry. Tee hee! We don’t see him. You don’t need anyone else. You have us. That is all you need. Tee hee…
