There are so many...
Shasta climbing up a chest (mine or Rob's), delivering several vigourous head bonks directly in the face, than settling, rumbling, for a long snooze in the lap.
Shasta scolding if that snooze was interrupted before she was ready.
Shasta responding instantly to "Time for bed, love" if she was inside, but resolutely refusing to come in, if she was out at the time.
Gryphon's soft paw on the leg, becoming more and more demanding, if the human was slow to pick him up.
Gryphon's insistence on a cuddle as I crossed the yard on the way to the garage in the morning.
Gryphon's confiscation of my coat if I threw it down on the bed because I was going to put it back on in an hour or so...and his disgust when I insisted on taking it back.
Gryph was also the In-and-Out Cat -- ever heard Garrison Keillor's "The In and Out Song"? Gryph. Except for the snow verse.
Nibs's less subtle insistence on being picked up (by Rob) -- a not-at-all soft paw, accompanied by determined Siamese vocalization.
Nibs's complete trust in his security in Rob's arms, to the point where he twisted around in the strangest ways, and really wasn't safe at all some of the time, including, if I stopped to give him a scritch, squirming around and walking into my arms -- five feet off the ground -- and then back. We called him "caterpillar" at those times.
Nibs's impatience for his DAAAAAD to get home from work -- almost without fail, at some point between my arrival and Rob's, he'd wander (he always wandered, except when he was being a dangerous driver!) to the front hall, and YOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWL, until I told him to put a sock in it, and then he'd come back to the kitchen and insist I give him a lap.
Samantha, ever the kitten, regularly did the cartoon dash into the kitchen, slammed on the brakes, and slid on her bum into a wall or cabinet.
Sam was also the Drama Queen, and would not take being ignored lightly. If one meow didn't get the appropriate attention, she'd turn up the volume a couple of times and then, it would be a long string of meows, ending with one extended fortissimo MEOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW! It worked.
I could go on. I won't. Good teary-eyed grins. Thanks for the thread.
