Sunday Selfie

HAPPY SUNDAY!


I am taking it easy on mum's lap today (that's if she can sit still for long enough).

Why are humans always rushing around? She says she's busy but I can see how stressed she gets. She has a lot of worries about the house move. She hates that it's taking so long and being stuck in a chain. Like most people, she finds it frustrating. All I can do is offer her lots of love and healing purrs. 

Do you like to sleep on your human's lap? Is your human always stressed?

Maybe some of you haven't seen this video of me before so I'm sharing it again! Hear my healing purrs!

That chain thing sounds really frustrating! I think my human has had to deal with that.

We pick and choose when we sleep on Mom Paula's lap. Mom Paula does have a lot of stress in her life and she says coming home to us relaxes her.

We all love sitting on laps. Our humans aren't too stressed though - well, they have good ways to relieve stress, like going for runs and working out.

Hello beautiful girl. Mom and I LOVED hearing your purring. That is the sweetest music there is.

Athena, I'm sure your mom loves your calming energy. Keep up the good work.

British house moving is a nightmare. Totally. One person drops out the whole thing falls apart. If we hadn't been moving to NZ we would NEVER move again!!!

You loove lovely though, and this must be so nice for your Mum, having you there to cuddle.

That's a very nice selfie, Athena. We hope everything goes well with the house move so your mom will be less stressed.

meowmeowmans said...

We're sorry the moving and all that it entails is stressing your Mum out, Athena. Your purring is melodious, and it must be so calming for Mum when you sit in her lap.

Hugs to you both!

Our mom gets stressed out when she tries to sit still. We don't get it, but she feels guilty if she isn't doing something. We've tried to explain to her that at her advanced age, she is entitled to relax sometimes. Hope you got your lap time, Athena. Thanks for hopping.

Very frustrating!

Athena has the most healing purrs.

Pets, especially cats, are so calming to be around.

Thank you, Siddhartha Henry xx

Mum tries to work out but she's a bit lazy. Apart from me, her way of relieving stress is usually chocolate and wine. Not good, Mum!

Sweet music - you are right about that!

Marie Symeou said...

That's exactly it. The waiting and not knowing is unbearable. I'm not the most patient of people and I find myself imagining the worst. At least Athena keeps me calm and entertained. I try my best not to appear stressed for her sake but cats are so sensitive and pick up on things.

Marie Symeou said...

My mum is quite the same. She sometimes can't sit still either and gets bored easily!

Athena, our Mommy is always stressed, every day! I sit on her lap all the time to bring her comfort.

So cute Athena!

I am not really a lap cat, but I do like to sleep on top of my mum when she goes to bed.

Eastside Cats said...

Athena, neither Chuck nor Angel are lap cats. Not that we don't pick 'em up and snuggle 'em anyhow, we are so mean to them! However, we've set up cat beds and boxes in such a way, that we are all next to each other, and the cats will purr, purr, purr. The loveliest sound in the world!

British house selling only has one winner - the estate agent. I hated them and they were thieves when we sold our house in the UK.
