Flexible Friday

With a lapcat like me around, Mom has to be flexible to get work done on her computer! She's a writer, and that means I'm a lucky cat: her lap is available to me much of the time. And we've worked out a dandy system.

She props her feet on her desk, while I lie in her lap.



Her computer is positioned a rather odd angle to her legs. That's why she has to be flexible.



Here, you can see how she reaches over me to type.



Not only do I keep Mom's lap warm and give her lots of support while she's writing, but I also help her keep nice and limber with all the stretching she has to do! *smile*

Yay for lap-time! Your Mom is very clever to have figured out a good way to have you in her lap and type, too. It's nice of you to think of her health and keep her limber, Marilyn.

That's very sweet, Marilyn. :) Our mom has arranged her desk so that she's sitting at an angle to it, so that we can cuddle in her lap while she's at the computer or studying.

That looks like the perfect napping spot. I am only a lap cat sometimes, when I feel like it.

Marilyn, I just know that your mom appreciates all that hard work you do, snuggling her and making sure she gets her daily stretching in!

You are so thoughtful, Marilyn. My mombean lets me sit on her legs, but her new computer has to be in her lap...unless she's sitting at the other one and then I have to squeeze inbetween her tummy and the table and then she types over me. I think I like the legs postion better.

Greeting from sunny Italy!

You are such a warm, snuggly, cute lap cat! I don't sit on laps for long - 2 mins maybe and I'm off!
