Aww Linda, I know what you mean. We don't want to change or do anything to upset our babies and we will even Suffer for them, lol. Aramis has got you trained and I'm with PK...he'll be okay if you put him back on the arm of the chair. Cats want to stretch the limit to see what they can get away with...what YOU will LET them get away with. I think if when Aramis wants to sit in your lap just calmly, but assertively put him back on the arm of the chair and be consistent about this. (Can you tell I watch Dog Whisperer? :)
Ah Ha! I think I see you're Liking the new system? :)
Oh no honey you don’t have to keep him on your lap while typing. Do what’s comfortable for you. He will be comfy wherever he is at…don’t you see how big he is? Lol…big but beautiful!
I do this with Dillan and Abby. I used to feel bad but it’s just too hard to do anything with them all over you or the computer. That’s when you know you have a spoiled cat hahaha.
Aww don’t feel bad hon. Aramis will not take it the wrong way lol…
Ack! I meant to write ‘Big AND beautiful’ My migraine medication makes me drowsy LOL….
Oh man I have the SAME problem....every time I sit at the computer, they take turns wanting to sit on my lap...or even worse Nemo wants to drape halfway on my body and shoulder...just so I have to hold him up with the left arm(doesn't make for easy typing)
He loves it..falls asleep there while my arm goes numb holding him, I put him down and he sits at my feet whining.....always!
I too feel guilty being on the screen too much and I think they aren't getting enough attention!!!
PK you got it right about 'spoiled babies'
Thank you, ladies. There is a sofa right next to the chair I usually sit in and I think I'll try to ease him over onto it. If I put a throw pillow down first it might make for an easy transition. When I put him down on the floor he puts on his sad face with his sad eyes as if to say "don't you ♥ me anymore?"....and y'all are right...they are all spoiled, lol I guess we wouldn't have it any other way :)
That's what my husband does with one of our cats. He keeps an extra chair at his desk just for her. Is she spoiled or what?...LOL
Awwww....Nancy, that's so sweet, really touching. I wish my husband felt that way about even one of our cats, lol
Don't you love seeing a guy being all sweet and caring for his pet like that? My husband's like that with Jade. Will do anything for her. I knew I liked my neighbor (Busters dad) right away when he told me 12yrs ago how he'd had his last dog cremated and spread his ashes where they used to go camping. Now he has Busters ashes in this beautiful homemade wooden box a buddy of his made for him. Neighbor just showed me the box yesterday. Will have a pic of Buster on the front. Isn't that sweet?
You know that is really nice. It seems like there are not so many men cat lovers as men dog lovers. My husband likes our dogs but just tolerates the cats. My dad loved cats and I have a picture of him with his favorite cat, Patsy. I would love it if my husband loved cats the way I do. It's really nice, Jade and Nancy that your husbands , and PK's too, really care so much about the kitties :)
