Argh, velcro kitty

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I can't get five minutes peace this morning... Rick just left for work, and I'm out here trying to redo this sig I made last night that came out terrible, and I'm just not in the mood for a cat on my lap (I cuddle him constantly guys, honest, I do), but here comes trouble, it's' spelled W-o-n-t-o-n, and he just sits in front of my chair looking up at me like "You.. you wont let me up? Don't you love me anymore?" cos he knows it always works and I'll let him up. Let him sleep on my lap while I worked for a bit, then he heard a noise and went to sit in the window and survey the backyard, make sure there were no intruders.. 20 mins later, here he is back again, tapping at my leg with his paw, and when I look down, he's sitting there with one paw lifted up, as if to say "I'm ready to hop up in your lap as soon as you say the word! Please? You don't want me in your lap? "... so now I'm cat-lapped again.

Honestly... I could use a good hour to myself, you know? Ah well, what are you gonna do. I do love him lots.. he's just a velcro kitty

I know how you feel... 8-Bit follows me around like a puppy. It's nice sometimes but every now and then I'd like some me time.

I've got velcro kitties too, and about the only time I have a moment to myself is if I'm being boring and sleeping. And even then, chances are very good that there are at least 2, many times all 4 at least in the same room. And chances are pretty good that at least 1 of them is touching me.

He sleeps on a thin cushion on my lap (so he doesnt slide off) with his head resting on my left forearm-its the only way he'll sleep when on my lap. so I get my left arm in the correct position so that I can type on the keyboard, he lays down and rests his head on it - and that's it. That's the position my arm is going to be in until he decides to get up.

taken just now:


He looks so peaceful tho. It's hard to be mad at him when I see that sleepy little face

Seb isn't a velcro kitty either. He has his moments but usually a good 10 minutes of lovins and he's ready to go eat or sleep again

Reeses bugs me to play with her everytime I'm on the computer and ONLY if I'm on the computer, and usually only me. It's like her and my wife had a discussion that I'm on it to much and while she's at work, Reeses is going to make sure I'm not on here too much It's sad too because she'll give me these sad little sounds like "please? "

Awww.. trust me, I do know I'm lucky to have a velcro kitty. I've never had a cat who wanted as much attention and love as Wonton does. It's mostly a positive thing, but once in a while it's just a tad frustrating

hehe... that's too cute. I wouldn't be able to say no to a kitty saying "please" either.

He's gotten off my lap finally I was able to go get something to drink, make a phone call, and now I've put my music on (can't have it on at a decent volume when he's on my lap - his head whips up, ears go back, eyes go wide, and he looks at me like "What's that racket!!??!"

So I just went and cleaned the kitchen, took a shower, came back and got online, and ten minutes later, who wanders out to join me? Yep, he's back on my lap.

velcro-kitty, indeed.

Aww... it's good that you appreciate it most of the time though. For years it was just me and Frankie and she's one of the most independant cats I know. She only lays on me to be pet every few weeks and never stays long.

Then along came Wickett. I get home and he's right there looking up at me telling me how his day was. We'll chat for a bit and snuggle. Then daddy gets home and Wickett goes about bugging Frankie for a bit or something else. Then an hour later he's on the couch looking at me with those eyes. If I don't pet him or if I ask him "what?" he'll quietly tell me that he wants some snuggles. He usually only has to ask once but sometimes I find his little "please" meows so cute that I'll ask him a few times what he wants and if he's sure about it... it's really cute... until I'm in bed half asleep.

Aw you are lucky. My cats are not really lap cats.

That sounds like Chynna. She will cuddle 24/7 literally. All she wants is to be down for dinner and to use the litter and the rest of the time she wants to be on top of me. And there is no getting away from her.

I go to the bathroom and she's right there tapping me on the leg. I go to the kitchen and she's right there looking at me. I sit at my computer and she's on the shelf by my knees tapping and pawing at my leg to get my attention.

I love her to pieces, but it's very frustrating to have such a needy kitty when trying to do stuff. I love to cuddle with her, just not 24/7 like she wants. I wish I had someone else here at times so that they can spend time giving her the attention that she craves.

I keep expecting to wake up one morning and find that Tomas has taped/tied himself to my hip. I cannot go anywhere in this house without him following along or whining if he can't. He doesn't ask to get in my lap either, he thinks it's his right to be there. He's still a kitten though and is actually not quite as bad as he was.

Sho is more polite, he will look at me, nod a little then come over. But only after I've invited him by nodding back or patting my lap or beside me.

Oh yeah, I definately appreciate it..especially at night, when I've got the bf on one side and Wonton on the other - I feel very safe and snuggled up It's just that I grew up an only child, and learned to entertain myself a lot of the time, and I just need a bit of alone time everyday - that means alone, no ppl, no cat - just me. I only need an hour or so.. but I need it. 99 times out of a hundred tho, I let him up on my lap regardless. It's impossible to say no to that face

Exactly.. Wonton's the same - if my bf and I go into the garage and close the door so he can't follow (he's not allowed in there in the daytime, cos the landlord uses it too and there is a chance he could slip out), he sits and meows piteously at the door. He can't stand knowing we're in another room, but he's not.

aww.. Sho sounds very polite and sweet

Wonton already got his morning snuggles from me this morning - he's in sleeping on the cable box, cos it's nice and warm, so I've actually got a moment to myself right now

I have two velcro kitties. When one's not on top of me, the other is. Sometimes, when Nermal is on my lap, Fred will jump right on top of him. Then I have 25lb of kitty weight to contend with.

There definetly are times when they are in the way. When I'm trying to type (right now!) and they're all over the keyboard. Or when reading the newspaper or a book.

The best is if I'm on the phone, laying on the couch. Nermal will always get on my chest and start kneeding my stomach. All the person on the other end of the phone can hear is "ouch, ouch, move your paw, your claw is stuck in my sweater. Get your bum out of my face!"

I'm the same way, there has been a few days where I've actually snapped at them to "LEAVE ME ALONE" (add a word or two). I love them dearly but sometimes the clinging goes to far.

If I'm holding Sho, Tomas -must- be in my lap too. I dread him growing up to be as big as Sho.

People hear me talking to Tomas, "what?", "what?" "why are you meowing now?", "no, you can't chew on the phone..." usually in that order.

Luckily my cordless doesn't have an antennae. Otherwise it would be "stop chewing on the antennae!" My bedroom phone does have a coiled cord, however, which Nermal loves to chew on ONLY when I'm using the phone!
