Jezebel the Lap Cat (?!)

Our cat Jezebel keeps amazing me. Today as I sat on a couch editing story using my laptop, she got on the armrest next to me, front paw tapping my keyboard. Curious, I slid the computer toward my knees and she got on my blanketed lap.

Jezebel has never been a lap cat. ‘Her’ blanket is on the cushion opposite us.

What? I can change...
I think maybe she senses my ongoing upset over losing all those lovely tropical fish. Even more amazing, she is still here as I type this, and strangers are in the house. At long last, our heat pump is being repaired.

Now, how do I prevent a crick in my neck looking at the screen off to the side?

  1. Perhaps she's cold. Nice to have company as you write, though, isn't it?

  2. They do what they want and when they want to. I'm glad you're letting her get close.

    I also linked this post to Feline Friday. Jezebel asked me to.

    Have a purrfect day and weekend, Jezebel. My best to your mom. ♥

  3. Animals sense more than we will ever know. I am sure she knows you are upset and is offering comfort in the best way that she can.

    1. So far, no crick. ~grin~ She got up when it was lunchtime and gave me a break. Heh...

  5. Is she feeling ok? My cats, especially the ferals, become clingy and overly friendly, often following me around, when they are not feeling well or not long from death. I don't know why.

    1. Oh, gosh. I *think* she's okay. She is due for a veterinary checkup, though, and I have noticed more and more of that mysterious quivering, like she has a palsy or something that kicks in now and again. Even then, she doesn't seem distressed but it's impossible to say. Thank you for the tip.
