Unk, I'm forever jealous that your boys actually sleep on your lap....my boy Midnight just comes for the petting and the minute I go back to typing he leaves. Mind you, I sit sideways at the desktop with my feet on the arm of the couch, so this is what I get....
First is the grab of the arm to get my attention
Then he comes on up for his loving and does the "pattycake" thing the entire time
My girl's another story...she's asleep on the bed right now and doesn't show up well since she's solid black on the black comforter.
