Although I occasionally put the bitey on her, I do love my Mom. I am not a lap cat, but sometimes I really like to be held and walked around the house, purring and purring. I will reach my front legs up and Mom will lift me under my armpits to her shoulder. She does a funny swing-around thing with my back legs, so I end up with one arm on her shoulder, one arm in front, and my back legs in front and sideways.
I picmonkeyed Mom's face out with a heart, because I love her so much! (but mostly because this is a KITTY blog, after all).
