We’ve had quite the discussions on our Facebook page about whether or not your cat is a lap cat.
Of course, most of the readers on this site have Ragdoll cats – and unfortunately, it has been my experience that people getting a Ragdoll think that they are going to be a lap cat and when the cat is not a lap cat, they are disappointed.
It has been my experience that Ragdolls in general are NOT lap cats. However, in the past year, my Charlie has started to jump into my lap for a quick knead and snuggle – but he doesn’t stay longer than 30-45 minutes.
I love that Charlie wants to knead and snuggle for a bit – but in general, I am pleased my cats are NOT lap cats. I grew up with Rags, a Ragdoll, who was not a lap cat, so that’s what I am used to.
Is your cat a lap cat? Do you care if s/he is a lap cat or not?
