Lap wars, computer edition

Tucker update: He is doing much better. Two knowledgeable cat people whom I trust have suggested giving him corn silk as a supplement to calm the bladder. I'm going to stop by the health-food store today and get some.

Long ago, Benny discovered how lovely it was to sit on my lap while I was on the computer. He purrs and purrs. Sometimes, Tucker decides HE wants to jump up, and when he sees Benny there, he often looks confused.
Oh, I see this lap is already taken?
Sometimes, he'll sit nearby, but other times, he'll keep coming back into the room to check the status of my lap. I can't decide if it's sweet or heartbreaking.

Sasha is the lap/computer cat here. He likes to snuggle in making me share the chair, then there is room for Sami on my lap.

Hope Tucker feels better soon!

In my house, the cats (and they started doing this because Skippy started doing it first) will slowly move up on whomever is in the coveted spot. if Muffin is in my lap, Skippy comes and stands next to her.. and when she shifts away from him (because apparently cats do this.. cause they all seem to do it in my house) he moves a paw into the recently vacated spot and just waits.. she'll shift away from him again, and he moves another paw into that spot.. ever so slowly he approaches, waiting for her to shift over because he's 'too close' and in time he (or she, cause Muff does this too sometimes, as does others) ends up right where he wants to be.

Honestly, we kitties usually don't enjoy sharing. We want what we want, and now! Before now, if possible. Tucker is just trying to guilt you out, since he knows it won't work on Benny.

Tucker is such a polite boy. I hope he got to sit on Mommy's warm lap eventually after being so patient.

We think another lap is needed! Glad Tucker is doing better.

We think you need a bigger lap! MOL!

Friends Fur Ever will be posting on Thursday with the Captain America shirt. If you don't know them, we can send you the link of it on Thursday.

You wouldn't be the first bean to stick a spare chair or table alongside the computer area, just in case another kittie needed a cuddle.

And THIS is why Daddy's office desk is littered with blankets, etc for Spare Cats, waiting for The Lap!

THere are never enough laps when there are more that two kitties.

Hope the info you received helps!
Thankfully no "lap wars" here, we have one cat and one dog.
