Akin to "Let Sleeping Dogs Lie"

When cat is in your lap either don't pet him into a deep sleep, or do not make any sudden moves.

24 hours later

Second choice is doubly hard when in a rocking chair. :(


  1. Are you just learning that cats have claws? :)

    I think cats are Nature's perfect critter: a sweet, gentile, cuddly critter with a full set of defenses, along with balance, agility, speed, grace, power, and beauty, all held in abeyance for when needed. And the little ones we have at home have all the same basic instincts and abilities of the big cats in the wild -- just miniaturized.
    That's what I like about my Sweetness.

    1. The point is that it is far too easy to be lulled into a sense of "no worries" when a cat purred itself sound asleep in your lap, his chin nuzzled in the crease of your elbow.

      Maybe even be especially wary with a usually soft-paw cat like this one.

      Or perhaps it is my cat's way of reminding me that it's unsafe to be absent minded when multiple push-button knives are laying in my lap. :)


  3. It's about respect.
    They offer the calming influence, but don't forget the respect.
