Getting Attention Back On ME!

Hi kitties!  I'm doing pretty good today - got lots of good napping in.


I've been having a problem lately, and I'm sure it's one a lot of us have experienced.  The human slaves actually think they have other things to do than cater to my every want!  Things like - sleeping, eating, reading (seriously, how can they think a book is more interesting than this face), knitting (and it's not even for me!) or being on the computer (and not being MY typist!).  

So what do I do to get the attention back on me?  I just crawl right on top of whatever they're doing.  And I mean RIGHT on top of it.  There's a book in their hands?  Just go sit on it.  They have that computer on their lap, taking up the primo lap space that a cute little kitty deserves?  Go sit on it!  And then it'll be impossible for them not to pay attention to the cat, which is the only slaves' REAL job.

It works pretty good.  I suggest you all try it out.

I also like sitting on dogs when they're in the slave's lap.  Just to make sure I'm the one closest to getting pets!

    1. I think Travis would eat the halibutt before it reached 17 days old though.

  12. We do this all the time to our mom and dad. Especially when they're on the computer. We can't understand why they would want to do other things besides paying attention to us either! You gave some great advice!

  13. We love the sitting on the dog solution to getting attention. We don't have a dog, but Astrid will plop right on top of Mauricio when he is in Mom's or Dad's lap to be the one getting the petting and loving.

    1. The other kitties around here aren't all that big on sitting on laps, so I don't have to compete with them. I'd probably sit on them too!
