What part of no aren't you getting?

I have come to the realization that Bête Noir is more 'no' deaf than most cats. Like say, this morning. She was outside on the back porch and came in for some 'warm-up huggies' as we call them. She doesn't ask, she just gets up and lays down, I have the choice of holding her or having her digging in with all twenty pointy ends and I have the scars to prove it.

I don't mind holding cats, but I can only manage it for a short time. You see, she is a shoulder kitty. She wants to be cradled like a baby. This plays havoc with my carpal tunnel after a short fashion, not to mention my wonky shoulders and leads to one-hand typing. So, after ten minutes, I put her down. She comes back up. I put her down. She comes back up. I put her down... are you sensing a pattern? This continues until she's finished. Does she come up when I'm watching TV? Of course not. It's only in the morning when I'm trying to work on the computer. The other four all do the same thing, but they go away when I put them down. Not Bête Noir.

And guess who I'm holding right now...
