Our visiting cat from next door loves to be carried, sit on my knee and sit with her paws on my desk!
When she comes in I am often in the middle of something, so I ask the boys to babysit her until I am ready to sit down. Asking is not the same as getting though. They just chuckle and carry on. So I am sort of ambushed with the eternal dilemma, do I just turn off the cooker and the running tap and sit down for 20 minutes, or do I hurry to finish what I was planning to complete, then sit down with her?
What I often do is hold her while I do things round the kitchen. Fool that I am, I even pulled in the big rubbish bins one by one while holding her in my left arm.
