She won't move off my lap and I'm trying to eat cheese and crackers. There is crumbage, mostly on the cat.

Presume this is normal in cases where pets won't shove off?

Mine does this, then eats the bits of leftover cheese. Carry on, I say!

It's just a cunning ploy so you drop tasty morsels on the cat and they can go clean themselves eat everything you dropped

My cat is a permanent attachment...

The laptop rests on top, various plates, cups, glass of wine - she doesn't seem to mind "so as long we're together" confused

My cat is going to get a GCSE in Science. She has spent many an evening while dd has been revising for her mocks, sitting on her laptop. smile

Babies make good plates too ...

Not long ago I took a heavily pg rellie out to lunch and watched her use the bump to prop the menu on. Seemed to work for her.

Well mine is going to have to move in a minute, as it's carbonara for dinner and I don't fancy getting eggy sauce out of cat hair.

Mine does that. He also tries to mn -(or any typing) for me.

Mine is a bookworm, whenever I sit down to read a newspaper or mag or book, puss will plonk himself on said paper and won't budge!
He was eyeing up the turkey just now too grin

He's already sniffed out his Xmas pressie from under the tree, a stocking with a catnip mouse inside, catnip drives him wild!

EnlightenedOwl I do that too grin. I slip my hands under them when they're on my lap to warm them too.

So long as you hoover it properly afterwards, I don't see any reason not to use your cat as a plate. They're okay with snacks, but things with gravy don't go down too well.
