When I get on my Mom's lap I like to pawsition myself
purrfectly before resting and this requires that I turn around
in circles making biscuits. The lap has to be tender before it
is possible to sit in it for a while. A non tender lap is very unconfortable
so the right amount of turning needs to be done before there is any settling
on the lap for a purr sesssion and rest.
Sometimes this process goes on for such a long time that I get distracted
from my original goal. I like to go up on a lap when Mom is doing something so there
are sometimes interesting items are left on the bed. These items are at least worth
some investigation to see what they are and if they are cat toys. Once I
am distracted the pawsitioning gets stopped to tend to the new thing .
