Does having a cat make you lazy?

Since getting Miss Furry Mittens, I have noticed how much longer it takes me to get out of bed plus I spend way more time doing nothing but sit on the sofa. All instances with a ball of cat on me of course.

Currently trapped in armchair unable to move in case I wake her. At this rate I’m never going to get anything done ever again!

Sometimes. In the evening I can never make the hot drinks as I have a cat or two on me.

But this morning I sat in the conservatory to do a ton of paperwork and Felix decided he wanted to go out. Then come back in. Then go back out. Then come back in but run away when I open the door. You get the picture. He was in a funny mood and kept galloping round the garden and house while all the others looked on in disgust because they were trying to sleep!

We have five plus a foster at the moment so it's a never ending task of feeding, clearing litter trays, brushing, strokes, and cuddles. Wouldn't have it any other way.

You have to be mean and move them sometimes. There is probably a German word for the guilt this causes grin

I’m not allowed to move while DCat gets his baby bump time!

Im stil here, thought she was getting up but no, she was just stretching

It is a crime to get up when cat is on lap.
It is a crime to disturb a cat whatever they are doing.
It is a crime not to answer your cats needs immediately.

Once you understand that the issue is resolved. You are just a law abiding catizen.

I am also constantly trapped by cats!

AllTheWittyNamesAreGone Wed 08-Nov-17 13:24:54

Are you wearing grumpy cat pj's crazycatgal? 😂😂

Aww, that's just too cute Julesbegone grin

Yeah, we call it 'cat privilege', i.e. whoever had the cat on their lap (me usually) can't move, someone else has to bring them drinks/snacks etc. She often doesn't move for the entire evening so it quite some commitment!

Mine don’t do laps but lie next to me. It’s bad enough that when I finally sit down after work they’ve clocked YouTube is on the main telly they get in my face until I put some kind of bird show on

I'm trapped too! Doesn't happen often so better savour it

Me too grin should be washing the kitchen floor, luckily have the remote within reach!

Dobopdidoo1 Wed 08-Nov-17 14:13:51

Also, when you actually have to move them in extreme emergency situations, do they all let out a deeply offended moan?!

I’m trying to figure out how much of a diva DobopCat is comparatively.

"I'm under the cat" is a legal get out of making drink/food/doing housework claws. grin

crazycatgal Wed 08-Nov-17 14:31:28

@AllTheWittyNamesAreGone Indeed I am! Although I would like to point out that the picture wasn’t taken today so I wasn’t sat in my PJs at 1pm lol.

RickOShay Wed 08-Nov-17 14:38:02

He’s fallen off
notr worth moving now thoughgrin

Dobopdidoo1 Wed 08-Nov-17 14:40:11

Haha - RickOShay, that’s funny! grin

dementedpixie Wed 08-Nov-17 14:41:28

Mine has moved to a shoe box but I have to go get the kids from school anyway

RickOShay Wed 08-Nov-17 14:44:52

Same demented, the clock is ticking

Luckyaide Wed 08-Nov-17 14:50:58

Get up for lunch. You mean you make her move. Bad cat slave. Lunch should be served where she is!
