Whitester Wednesday: In Mom's Lap

I love, love, love lying in Mom's lap. My favorite way to cuddle with Mom is when she cradles me in her arms, up against her chest, rubs my chest and tummy and gives me face and chin scritches and kisses.

And I give her headbutts, headrubs and kisses, and I purr, purr, purr, oh how I purr! In a word: bliss.

We do this a lot. It's our snuggle time -- it's precious to us both.

But when Mom is busy on the computer (she's working on a new novel), I lie on her legs, like this, and Mom reaches out and types over me:



What's that, Mom? You got out the camera, and now you'd like a smile?



Okay, here you go... a smile for you, Mom, and a wink and a kiss for my darling Mickeybear!



I want to extend my congratulations to my feisty little sister, Dorydoo -- for the Simply Siamese Spring Contest, she wrote her first poem ever, showcasing her more mellow side... and won second prize in the contest! Check out her entry here. Great job, little sis!

Great photos.
I likes to snuggle, but I don't likes when she starts that typing stuff.
No I don't.

There is nothing to do, your eyes crack me up each time I see you ! And you are such a cuddle cat ! Not like Mr. Arthur, he just allows me to pet him a little but not too long then he is offended and walks away. He never sits on my lap (sigh*) But Rosie she behaves like you.

MISS PEACH >(^.^) said...

Oh sister dear...please come and let me be cuddled and comforted by your love and the Ballicai. I can hardly understand why so many friends have to go to the bridge. Petey has been a special friend. He fought so hard. I know we all will have our time. I told mommy not to do any heroics if I decline with my health. Gosh I am so sad...
Seeing how happy you make your mommy just warms my heart like an autumn fire. Maybe I can bury myself in Brainball's floof for the day so no one can find me....
Much love from your devoted sister Peach

Dragonheart & Merlin said...

Very sweet, Marilyn. :) We both love snuggling too - I, Dragonheart, spend most of my day in my mom's lap, and Merlin loves to snuggle in our dad's lap when he comes home from work.

Miss Marilyn

Your snuggle time with your Mom sounds very nice indeed. I like to sit on top of Momma but I will let her curl me up like a little baby bean sometimes. She loves to kiss my pawsies, I don't know why? You look so ever so lovely in that last picture...

Purrs

I usually just sit on the mouse and purrrrrr....

Cheysuli and gemini said...

That is a lovely pose. Alas our computer is too big to fit on the woman's lap so I have to curl up in a small ball so she can sit at the desk.

Tybalt said...

Marilyn, life is wonderful when you are mommy's special snuggle kitty, isn't it?

Bounce, Lucy and Trixie said...

What beautiful pictures of you Marilyn! You sure do love your Mom a whole lot. In our house Lucy is Mom's snuggle bunny.

Kellie The Orange Cat said...

I love snuggling with my Mum in the exact same way! I lie in her arms like a baby and she rubs my tummy and chest and talks to me and I gaze up at her and purr - Mums are the best!

zevo husssein calamari said...

Beethoven said...

I love snuggle time like that with mine Mummy too! Just that most of the time, the Giant Kitty would butt in too and interrupt me and mine Mummy's snuggle-time.

Isis said...

I see you get hounded by the Paparazzi too! It's so hard being beautiful! :)

Princess said...

Sweet Marilyn, you are soooo nice to give your mommie attentions like this.
You are a dearie.

Awww, I'm squealing with delight. We do almost the same things when our mom beans are writing. You're smile and wink picture is adorable. How could Mickey Bear resist such a pretty face.

Please apologize to Dorydoo for me. I just congratualted her on Mao's site for first place in the poem contest, I miss read it somehow. Tell her she should have won first place, but second place is still very good. sorry, I have a dyslexic mom bean and I think her handicap has rubbed off on me.


Love ya--sister-cuz...bunches and bunches...G
