You can always drop the cat off at a Chinese restaurant. They love cats and take in all strays! :shock:

The great humanitarian Dr. Albert Schweitzer (who received the Nobel Peace Price for running hospitals in Africa long before anyone had heard of Mother Theresa) is supposed to have once written a letter with his left hand so as to avoid disturbing the cat that was sleeping on his right arm.

So you are in good company, Dr. Harley.

That said, methinks that gently moving the cat to your lap or an other comfortable sleeping location would be a perfectly agreeable solution -- to cats and humans alike in most of the known world.

Every now and then Harry Buttlicker decides sleeping on my feet is not cozy enough, and redistributes himself to the head of the bed, onto the pillow, resting in my hair. He purrs loudly and weights 18 pounds. No wonder I have neck pain when I wake up.

I can tell by this.. You have never been trained and owned by a Damn Cat..

The great DR is correct.. You do not disturb the napping cat..

the only reason yer cats act that way is because you let them. People feel like they cant be rough in disciplining a cat, that's how they get you then they just start walking all over you because they know you can.


You know how people hate it when a child's parents are nowhere around as the kid is running rampant thru a store? ya, that's yer cat.

Damn CAT

It's not that I mind him getting me up the same time each morning.. It's how.. I call it a bladder dance.. Where he took dance lesions I don't know.. He can bring his full weight on each paw.. Then as a final and just as I'm reaching for a WoMD.. My stomach is used for a recoil base.. He rockets off into the air into his cloking device..

You can train a cat to let you move them.
After awhile they don't even wake up.

I let my cat leap onto my chest once.
He decided it was okay and started doing it with no warning.
And hes a good sized cat too.
It can be very startling and it takes a real effort to not react.
Shrieking and waving your arms and maybe flinging the cat is almost guaranteed to get a negative reaction.
And you don't really want to encourage those claws to come out.
I had trained him to leap with no claws out.
Probably very unnatural for a cat.
That was Stupid Cat.
But he was good at being a cat.

Not enough meat on them for me.

Got my monster to jump when I clap my hands. He doesn't know that you can't train cats. He just knows that I am 10 times his size.

Haughty Sphinx, whose amber eyes
Hold the secrets of the skies,
As thou ripplest in thy grace,
Round the chairs and chimney-place,
Scorn on thy patrician face:
Rise not harsh, nor use thy claws
On the hand that gives applause--
Good-will only doth abide
In these lines at Christmastide!

At this moment I'm sitting on the edge of the "computer chair" because Como, our Longhair Orange Tabby forced his way between my fat ass and the backrest.
I'm not going to deny Mr Como his beauty rest.
We even have a sign above our bed "A sleeping cat is a good excuse NOT to make the bed."
Now he's changing positions to watch Little Gizmo (9months old) stare at a lazer light thats not even on.

Why dose the damn cat have four practice mice on the bed? At 4:00 in the morning. There most be a better time and place. He seems to be working out new attack strategies.

Well I'm working on a strategy to remove his tail.. Right behind his ears.

Best to not let him hear you speaking such things.
