Laps


There's been a change in Miss Boo.
Boo has always been a very independent cat.
She's aloof, like many cats are.
It is just her personality.
But, lately she has decided she likes
to sit in my lap.
Mind you, all the years Abby was here
Abby held court in my lap, and
Boo played second fiddle.
Did she mind?
I never knew if she did, she didn't show it.
After Abby left us, Boo got closer to me.
She began wanting to sleep next to me every night
(and still does).
When Annabelle arrived she took over the
nightly lap duties.
Again, Boo did not appear to mind.
But out of the blue, Boo has
decided she wants some lap time too.
14 years.
Who knew?

  3. Some of the older cats here have turned into lap cats.
    Julie was always a lapcat.
    We guess they like the body heat more :)
    Enjoy your laptime Miss Boo :).

  6. I think that as they get older, some cats will want a little extra comfort, and a little reassurance. And Boo has seen her chance. I know you'll give her all she needs.

  7. Shaggy has become a lap cat in his seniority too. He's always close by and comes right away top join me in my recliner when he hears me put up the footrest. He's 16 now, actually closer to 17. But doing well!

  16. TBT here: When it was Skeeter and LC, Skeeter ruled my lap. Not from denying it to LC (he never denied her anything she wanted), but because she didn't want my lap even when he was outside. She wanted HIS company.

    When Skeeter left for the Bridge, she stayed alloof for several months. But one evening, she asked to come up and I was thrilled. She gained some comfort there. And she purred there the 13 months before she joined Skeeter again.

  17. My Saku has recently taken to wanting lap time - he's almost 9. Not sure why they change their minds.

    I'm certain the lap time is enjoyed by both you and Miss Boo!
