I really enjoyed your story about TC and Miss Priss, and the picture was just wonderful! We have a tabby orange and white, of which the sun rises and sets for. She is such a companion, she has a bit of temper, she only loves her mommy and daddy. Do you or anybody have any idea why she jumps on my husbands lap puts her front paws on his chest and just stares in his face. She favors him most, and if she's in my room and he comes in she jumps up and twists and turns and meows.

If that was my black cat I would say the food in his bowl needs "fluffing". If It was the orange cat he wants to be pet. If it was the gray cat he wants to go out. end of cats

Ms. Monaco, I would say the cat is looking to your husband for affection. Cat is saying "hello" and "have I found a nice lap here?" If your husband pets it at that point, with a little sweet talking thrown in, the cat will probably settle down for a nap in his lap for as long as he will sit still for it. :)

Yes, I think it's that little extra bit of spoiling cats remember. My daughter is 21 and has a housecat, (no kids). But she treats the
cat like it's her kid, and I have even caught
her talking baby talk to it.
She even called from work this spring to know
if "he" came in last night (from the woods).
I almost called her beau on the phone at work
to see if he could hurry up this house hunting,
engagement, marriage, and start a family thing--I thought this cat being her kid thing was going too far.
But she snapped out of it.

Thank you all for your comments on Shanna, oh let me assure you he talks sweet nothings to her. That's what I told him she is doing, and he didn't want her in the beginning. I've always had dogs and when I buried the last one which was many years ago I swore no more. I held out for a long time then I saw this little face and I was a goner.
