Hi, Clarissa let me take over the blog today. I'm Ginger, true sibling of Spunky, Puff, and Panda. If I'm not mistaken, the four of us will be 10 years old this year. I've always been the shiest of the litter. My sister and brothers love to get in mom's lap for some snuggle time. Spunky and Puff will share mom's lap. Panda will share mom's lap with other kitties, but not Spunky or Puff. I've never been a lap cat with my mom. Well, on Sunday afternoon I decided I was going to get some snuggle time with mom.
Mom was watching a movie and knitting and I decided to jump up on the foot of the recliner. I rubbed my face and cheeks all over her legs and feet, and I finally moved a little closer so mom could skritch my ears. Before long I had laid down on her thigh, or at least the back half of me had. My front half was draped over the arm of the recliner. I purred and purred while mom patted me and stroked my back. I finally laid my head down on my front legs and took a short nap. It made mom very happy. Me and my sibs moved into our forever home in 2007, and this is probably the third or fourth time I've come close to being a lap cat.
Maybe one day I'll be a true lap cat!
