Okay Lint - you got me on that one. I've NEVER had a cat or catlet pull that paticular stunt. And over my decades of being owned by cats - I thought I'd seen it all.

You have to stay parked for awhile. You know, pullin' out a magazine time.

Men are more inclined to settle in and stay for awhile...ask the SO if it's happened to him.

I have had a couple of the cats I've had try to take up residence in my dropped drawers. When we had 4 kittens in the house you could find a few kitties in your clothes.

Ours used to do it to DH. He'd holler to me to come get them, because one of them used to hiss at him if he tried to move it! Talk about threatening a guy when he's at his most vulnerable...

It's been so hot here Misty runs from the door when it opens. Usually she tried to escape, but not in this heat.

I like the stacked kitties.

Cats cheat. Blatantly. Unremorsefully. Then blame the dog.

THAT'S why after looking at that photo I got up & topped up the cat food dish!

The little buggers are all working together.

The cat sitting on the guys face reminds me of Misty a bit ago. I'm up and moving around the house and she goes to wake DH up. He was not happy. Me on the other hand, I was laughing quietly.

Looks very fitting.

Our little drama queen has the habit of walking up to us and falling over to have her belly rubbed. She will even roll over and make a begging motion with her paws if we don't rub her belly.
