    That’s my dog no matter the weather. Open laps must be occupied.

    You do have temperature control yes? Why isn’t it warm inside? I liked cats on my lap. I felt honored. Just as when the cats would allow me to rub their bellies.

    It’s 7…with windchill -23…and I live in southern Michigan, not Alaska. Temperature control is a losing battle in our current polar nightmare. Baileys in my coffee…it was a dumb New Year’s resolution anyway. ;)

    It’s nearly impossible to sit at the computer here without one of the cats wanting lap, I have Wicked with me right now


    At any given time any one of our five cats can claim a lap, and we’ll usually give it to them


    Yes we do spend a lot of time loving on our cats, but they love back

    our cat has claimed my spot in the bed because I sat up for the comics.

    This strip could be of my cat. She waits just long enough for a lap to appear and then she’s in it. Unlike Arlo, though, I love it and am sad when the warmer weather comes.

    Besides, the cat keeps you warm, too.

    I’ve known a few self-declared cat-haters who have turned 180 degrees the first time a cat curls up in their laps and starts purring. Think of that line from the musical “Cats”: “Just touch me and you will know what happiness is.”

    It’s -13°F (-25°C) in Chicagoland (NE Illinois) and windy.

    Since we’re having a “battle ’o the temps”, it’s -21 in MN, with -40 wind chill.
    Almost everywhere across the US seems to be experiencing radically lower temps. So -20 for us in MN probably feels the same as 7 to you good folks in southern MI.
