Previously Mom has written about and shown photos of me in her lap. Lily Olivia and I actually compete for that prized position. Whoever arrives first has dibs and squatters rights. We never share—calico cooties, you know! Only Mauricio and I try to pile on together!

As Lily goes outside and I usually shun the catio (for fear of running into one of my fursibs), I get more than my fair share of lap time. Just as it should be! Don’t you think? I normally begin with a four-pawed, power knead accompanied by my power purr before settling for a nap.

If I am not feeling napish, I will perform the nose-nudge under Mom’s hand until she pets and loves on me. She always says that my head smells like stinky goodness. It’s true. I like to stick my head in the can to retrieve remaining morsels. MOL!

Since today is Tortie Tuesday, I wanted to share some recent photos of me. I have no idea why I was awake and just sitting quietly. One thing I do know: I am damn cute! Enjoy and squeeeee if you like.

Oh Astrid, you are looking soooo beautiful and adorable in those photos! I just can’t get enough! I sure would like to share you mom’s lap with you. That would be a most purrfect day. I suppose I will just have to dream about it for now. Oh, and Mom says that my head smells like icky kitty breath. That’s because we all bathe each other so much, we smell liked slobber all the time. MOL! Anyway, I am so excited to be seeing you today. I am also sending you as many kisses as people and kitties have squeed over your photos (and I’m sure that’s a lot)! My family sends lot of love to everyone too.

You’re so cute cuddling on your human’s lap! Pierre is the only lap-sitter here, so he doesn’t have to compete. He has the head peep’s lap whenever she makes room for him, which isn’t often enough, in his opinion.

Binga prefers my human’s boyfriend’s lap, but the feeling is not always mutual! He finds it hard to get things done when she’s there.
