Caturday ~ Kiki loves me

Kiki loves to be near me.  Thursday, when I stretched out to read a bit, she snuggled up against me, wrapped her paws around my arm, and tucked her head in tight.  These hugs (it isn't the first time, as you can see here and here and here) make it hard to turn pages with one hand and read.  But she loves me and it was my birthday.  Who could resist?

Saturday Snapshot is a meme hosted by Alyce from At Home With Books.  To participate, post an old or new photo taken by you (or a friend or family member).  Check out the snapshots others are sharing this week.

That's so sweet. I miss having a cat.

Cathy said...

I had a dog who'd hug me all the time, too. I still miss him. Love the photo!

Trish said...

Aww that is the most cuddly kitty I've ever seen!

Paulita said...

I hope you had a happy birthday, and it is good to be loved. Maybe you need to get a digital reader so you can turn the pages one handed and let the cat hold onto the other! Here's Mine

So sweet. It's obvious you need a Kindle so you only need one finger to turn the page:)

Bonnie Jacobs said...

Good idea, Paulita and Diane. I'll have to consider it.

Aww, that's so sweet! Mine will just try to sprawl all over my book or, if I'm on the computer, over the keyboard!

Eva said...

Aaaah, that is so cute.
It's hard when they do that, you want to turn the pages but it seems so cruel to disturb them.

SO adorable!! My cat has turned snobby with me with the warm weather. No hugs allowed.

There is NOTHING quite so cozy as a kitty snuggled close!

Adorable! My family's cat liked to climb in my lap while I was trying to use my laptop...which made typing difficult, but I never had the heart to push her off!

Who can resist a kitten the hugs?

Alyce said...

That is so sweet! My cats don't do anything like that. One is more independent (and likes to wake me up all hours of the night) and the other is super-needy but wants people to pet her constantly or she won't hang around.

I love it when our poodle does that, it's like a small child :-)

We have 3 and one of them seems to always need that little human touch...thankfully they don't all decide to snuggle at the same time :)

Aw, how sweet! I hope your birthday was grand!

Vicki said...

So sweet! I love cuddly pets!

How sweet. And what a fluffy kitty! Hope you had a great birthday!

Do you mean fluffy as in "I'm not fat, I'm fluffy"? She's a fat cat, actually. But a loving fat cat.

Sarah Williams said...

How sweet! Mine doesn't go to that extent. She mostly tries to use the book as a pillow, or to rub her chin on the corner. She still does it with my Nook.
