Photo Friday: Sofa Buddies

Chris is a very touchy-feely cat and loves to lie against, or on top of, any cat or human that will tolerate it. This time it is Floki but now he is on my lap as I write this.

Does anyone else have a touchy-feely cat like Chris?

    Teddy is not at ALL a touchy-feely kitty (unfortunately!)……he doesn’t like to be picked up, he DOES like to be petted (a bit) and follows me around like a puppy would, but touchy-feely he’s not. I’m hoping maybe as he ages he’ll get to appreciate laps more!

    Some minutes my cat is kind of cuddly, rubs herself at my thigh next to me on the couch – and then again, she is not coming anywhere close … And I certainly cannot hold her. But when the vet got her out last year for a checkup after a teeth-removing surgery, she wrapped herself around the vet’s hand.

      African Wild Cats, the domestic cat’s ancestor, are basically loners, especially the males, so it doesn’t surprise me that many cats are only affectionate occasionally. Chris has always been an outlier.

        But today’s house cats are organising themselves in little groups – in villages they gather, sometimes two get along like two peas in a pod, sometimes not, but all in all – look at the cats at the Colosseum in Rome – they are more of a social animal these days.

    that is too cute! Cody is our “touchy feelie” one………….but only with me. When I watch TV he has to rest his ample behind on my arm which makes my arm go numb lol
