Pass the Parcel, err Cat

Hello out there in the Bloggosphere,
I began on Mum's lap.

I want to show you how well-trained humans behave with regard to the cats who own them.

As I'm sure you know, one of the most important rules for humans is "never disturb a comfortable cat."

Well, the other day I started out comfortably on Mum's lap on the couch.  I wasn't quite asleep, but I was thoroughly relaxed.

Then Mum said she needed to go to the bathroom.  

Mr 20 picked up a very soft blankie and put it on his lap, and said, "Pass the cat."

Mum very gently picked me up and carefully transferred me to the soft blankie on Mr 20's lap.

On the soft blankie on
Mr 20's lap.

The thing that makes a comfortable human lap even better is a really soft blankie, so I was very comfortable and relaxed.. 

A bit later when Mum came back, she asked Mr 20 to empty the dishwasher.  She put the other soft blankie on her lap ad Mr 20 very carefully transferred me to Mum's lap.

When Mr 20 came back from emptying the dishwasher, Mum had to go and do something else.  Humans are always doing things. 

Again I was carefully transferred from one lap to the other.

Now, in an ideal world, a human would just stay perfectly still for two hours when I decide to have a two hour nap on one of them.  But, I don't think any human in the world has ever been trained quite that well.

The next best thing, is to have humans trained to know how to transfer a cat from lap to lap without interrupting his comfortable rest time.  

Of course, even the best trained humans fall down on the job sometimes.  When Mum spilled hot coffee on herself she jumped up off the chair so fast I just fell on the floor. Clearly she needs a little more training.

Until next time we meet in the Bloggosphere,
I remain,
Mr Bumpy,
Supreme Feline Overlord.
