Tabby Tuesday: Downtime Means Laptime for Me

tabby tuesday simonHello everyone, it’s Tabby Tuesday once again, can you tell where I’m at?  Yes, I’m sitting on the Dad’s lap.  I’ve been doing this a lot lately and I really do enjoy it.  As soon as the Dad sits down on the couch I come running.  First I like to get some petting and some ear scritches and then I pile right in on the lap.  The Dad says he never thought he would see the day when I would be a lap kitty, mostly because I was such a wild little guy when I moved inside with Sister Seal.

I did a lot of this over the weekend, but not to worry, I did my share of playing and getting into things.  I do like my early morning and late evening rip n’ run routines and I can zip around the entire house before you know it, well, except for the upstairs suite of course.  I rip n’ run to work up and appetite for my breakfast and late night snack, not that I would miss a meal or anything.  I do snooze a lot during the day, since everyone else is so it must be the thing to do.

Oh, since tomorrow is a holiday in the U.S. Brother Brian tells me there might be some interesting food cooking up.  We never get any human food, nor do we ask, but those different smells can sure be fun.  Who knows, maybe someday we’ll be offered a sample.

Have a fun Tuesday everyone, I’ll be seeing you soon.  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

What a great story and case for feral rescues as kittens. We have a group several towns over that has trapped and neuters 2 moms and their litters last month and even the young moms are beginning to come around. I love these devoted folks.

I love it when a kitty sits on my lap, only Joanie will, but all the others sit on my hubby.

This is a touchy subject for me, Simon. When the housekeeper sits down, I have to compete with a lap-top..an infuriating gizmo that gets all her attention. Well, maybe not all of it..I do get combed every morning and cuddle with her in between, forcing her to shut the darn thing!..Have a good 4th you guys! – Tom xx

Wow, Simon,do you think there is hope for Sawyer. He will sleep on our mom’s feet occasionally, but that’s as far as he’ll go. He remain a wild child through-and-through! XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer

Is there enough room in the Dad’s lap for your tail, Simon? 😉
We haven’t had any tail shots recently!

Brother Simon, we bet that your laptime with Dad makes your Dad very happy. Timber is really into the rip n run times too, usually right before and after dinner:) And he has no trouble revving up Misty to join him.

Have a safe and good Fourth!

Your life is a lot like mine. I love to play but when Daddy sits down I am right next to him and if I ask him I get all sorts of love and scratches. Life is good.

I don’t do laps but you make it almost sound like fun. When I first moved in, I couldn’t care less for human food but it’s the best.
