Cats can be tough creatures to figure out. It seems that whenever you want affection from them, they want nothing to do with you. However, when they want attention, you better drop what you’re doing and give it to them otherwise they sit sit on your keyboard, push your coffee off the desk, unplug your X Box, trip your fire alarm, order more pizza than you can eat, and specifically your least favorite flavor… That’s not just my cat is it?
It is a known thing among those who own cats though, that you will spend 80% of your time trying to get it to love you.
Sometimes however, your cat will want nothing more than to snuggle up on your lap.
And you best believe that they will be relentless in gaining your lap for their snuggles. Here is one such kitty who wants one such lap, and will stop at nothing to sleep on it.
The kitten’s owner gently moves it from his lap and places it tenderly on the carpet in front of him.
But little “Hinoki” is not having a bar of that!
He immediately gets up and looks around as if to say “What the fur man?” Shaking his wee head, he seems to wake up a tiny bit before residing himself to the fact that he does NOT want to be awake and must return to sleep as soon as possible. But the carpet simply won’t do.
Hinoki trots straight back to his dad and climbs back onto his legs.
This kitten will not be some low-class floor kitten. He’s a lap kitten, through and through. Hinoki wastes no time in getting back up to his happy place up there on Dad’s lap.
Back in his favorite place, Hinoki seems content…
…for now. I’m not sure why, but Hinoki’s dad seems to want to test his dedication to lap sleeping.
Once again Hinoki is placed gently down on the carpet.
A bold move on Dad’s part, but at he must know that this kitten will not give up and stay on the carpet. His determination to move Hinoki has warranted some pretty funny comments. A few read:
“I’m pretty sure that moving that kitten is illegal.”- Sarah Johnston
Another along the same line seems appalled at Dad’s willingness to pass up such a cuddlesome kitten:
“It’s the law, if a baby animal sleeps on you, you’re not allowed to move. Accept your fate.”- Searth Ngeam
Good point Searth, as we’ve already discussed, the laws of cat affection are complex, but immutable.
Of course, once again, Hinoki returns to his dad’s lap.
If you could put a treadmill between Hinoki and his dad, you could create a source of infinite renewable energy. You could power a small town off the energy that this cat will expend to sleep on his lap! Somebody get Elon Musk on the phone, he’s going to love this one! You could call it Kittenergy!
