Feline Friday

I normally begin my Friday posts with Fill-Ins, but I am flipping things today, as the photos I am sharing are special.






All these photos were taken last night as Sawyer snoozed in my lap! I have to admit that I was pretty darn jealous when Sawyer curled up in Dad Tom’s lap a couple of nights ago. But last night he selected my lap, and he even allowed me to pet him while he was there. Best evening ever since Sawyer joined our family!

Sawyer is joining th Feline Friday blog hop at Comedy Plus. You can go there by clicking the badge below.

Friendly Fill-Ins: Week #191

Friendly Fill-Ins is hosted by Ellen (15 And Meowing) and Lorianne (Four-Legged Furballs). Each select two sentences for participants to complete. If you’d like to play along, click on the badge at the left. That will take you to Lorianne’s blog, where you can enter the link to your post.

The sentences to be completed can be found on both blogs each Thursday.

I have filled in using teal italics. Any explanatory info is in parentheses.

1. I could not live my life without cats.

2. A simple pleasure I enjoy is snuggling with Kitties Blue.

3. If I could change one thing about myself, I wouldn’t. (I would have liked to have lived my life without my neuro-muscular disease, but after 70 years it is part of what makes me who I am.)

4. A person without his/her face “glued” to their cellular device is hard to find these days.

Sorry I didn’t do any visiting yesterday. We were without power for most of the day!

Aww, such Sawyer cuteness! Having your lap selected by a kitty is one of the best feelings in the world. And thank you for joining in on the Friendly Fill-Ins! I relate to all of your answers. You are so right about people’s faces being glued to their phones these days. My grandma always threatens to take away the phone of anyone who is staring at it rather than enjoying the company of family around them, and I don’t blame her one bit for threatening that. Purrs to all of you!

That is a pretty darn nice photo and that is a reward of the love we give our furry companions. In the past year Miss Fitz will come up at night and cuddle under my arm as I read in bed. Then she lays next to me and that is her sleep spot. This is after years of never coming close and not allowing any contact. What a reward it is when she gives her very quiet, barely audible, purr. Heaven
Great answers on your fill ins

Those are great photos. How sweet that he likes both of your laps now. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. I almost had that for #4, it drives me crazy to see people on phones driving, grocery shopping, etc. And I agree, I could not live without my kitties. Have a nice weekend! XO

Sawyer looks so happy and relaxed on your lap. Hopefully it will continue now he knows how good it is to be a lap cat.

Sawyer looks so peaceful and I know his mom is relaxed just having him so near. I have never sat on mom or dad’s lap. I have run across mom’s lap but I never linger. Angel Kali used to sit on mom’s lap but that’s it. Tyebe and Budd don’t sit on anyone’s lap either. Maybe I should sit on her lap and help her relax a bit.

Your fill ins are great.

Those photos are a celebration! Not only is Sawyer on your lap, but you can tell he is completely relaxed and trusts you 100%. I’m so happy for you.

p.s. I, too, will admit to a twinge of Jealousy when Raven snuggles with her Dad.

Eastside Cats January 17, 2020 at 11:47 am

Here’s hoping that Sawyer’s new lap adventures help him stay “you-know-what” free! Maybe someday, we’ll have have electronic implants, so we can ‘think’ to Facebook, or to read a book, or take a class!

So sweet! I totally understand the feeling. Caster was NOT a lap cat, so on the rare occasion he did decide to snuggle in my lap, it was one of the most exciting and wonderful things. Hope Sawyer continues to be a lap kitty! Sending love to you guys, with extra special kisses to Astrid from Sampy.

Stephanie B January 17, 2020 at 8:47 am

So awesome! I am thrilled Sawyer is trusting of you both . Those photos are so sweet!!!!!

Sweet Sawyer, he’s turning into a love bug!

The Florida Furkids January 17, 2020 at 8:15 am

We LOVE those photos! Sawyer and Noelle are so much alike. Mom wishes Noelle would cuddle but she’ll only tolerate a few minutes and then the claws and teeth come out. On the other paw, Allie is in Mom’s lap right now!!

Great fill-ins. Mom totally agrees with #1!

I loved seeing precious Sawyer there on your lap and knowing that you and he shared the love and warmth and specialness. XX

Aw, those pictures are so special. It’s wonderful when they do decide to curl up in your lap! Happy time!

I am very happy that Sawyer has learned the power of the lap nap. 🙂

Oh my heavens, these Sawyer photos are absolutely adorable. Those are very much some of my most favorite poses, too!

Pam and Teddy January 17, 2020 at 5:16 am

Wonderful photos of a “blissed out” Sawyer AND Mom! I think Sawyer has lowered his fences a lot as he’s acknowledging that without his Mom and Dad he wouldn’t have had a chance to have a happy home. “THANKS MOM AND DAD” sometimes is hard for kitties to say but this is how they do it. Lovely!

Hugs, Pam and Teddy too
