Well, it’s officially been six weeks since I arrived at my forever home. I am eating like a little piggy and growing really fast. I play hard and sleep harder. My older brofurs, Luke and Tully seem to like me okay. I know I get on their nerves at times. I run around the house and act like a wildcat, I just can’t help it! There’s so much to do and explore in this house. I’m glad I have Natasha to wrestle with because I don’t think I’d want to take on the bigger cats just yet. They still outweigh me by 8-10 pounds. The big guy, Luke, could kick my butt if he wanted to, so I’m trying to behave and not get him too irritated with me.
Neither Natasha nor I have been very affectionate so far, but Mom is very patient with us and doesn’t force it. She pets us a lot while we are lying on the furniture or casually walking around the house and we purr like crazy, but neither one of us likes to be picked up or held.
I thought I’d surprise Mom by sitting on her lap today. She was reading a newspaper in the recliner chair this morning with her coffee and I thought I’d let her know that her patience might be paying off. I sat down on her lap and started up my extra loud purr motor. I gazed at her with adoring eyes. Mom really loved that - I just might be a lovebug after all.

What a nice surprise for your Mommy to get some lap time with you. I don't know if it's an orangie thing or what but we choose when we want to be held, cuddled, etc. As I've gotten older though I can't get enough of Mom's lap, her head when she's sleeping, being carried around like a baby, etc. I bet both you and Natasha grow into great big "lovebugs" like your older brothers.
Oh Sammy! I know you made your mom's when you jumped in her lap! Lap sitting is a wonderful pasttime....you are sure to like it!
prrrrt 'n meow,
You're lucky Sammy! My mommy forced loving and cuddling on me when I came here a little less than 14 years ago! I'd be trying to play or sleep and she would just molest me with hugs and kisses. Yeah, I didn't like to be picked up either, hey, I was a kitten, I had better things to do! But did she care??? Noooooooooooooo! So dude, all I can say is you are lucky to have a home where you get some respect! MOL!
