Anyone else have this problem? Get up even for a few minutes and find your pet firmly enconsed in your chair?  Well I have finally solved that problem and it works like a charm.

Grumpy gus, isn't she? No way is she parting with the spot.

OK, so usually she's a bit sweeter than that but not when it's time to budge. So how to get her out without a fuss and a few slaps? Step one, pick up nail trimmers,

Step two, pick up one of kitty's paws and prepare to trim.

Step three, watch kitty immediately evacuate to another spot. Works like a charm everytime.

Good tip! I shall have to remember that when I have my next chair fight with Onslow.

I have that problem with Tanzy as well but all I have to do is mention the "b" word - bath! She runs and hides every time.

Clearly I'm not the only person with this problem. The bath idea is a good one, but no one in their right mind would ever dare to give Misfit the kittycat a bath. She'd turn into a she devil at the very thought.

LMAO! That's quite clever, I must say. I will have to try this one on one of my cats. It's funny how they always pick the spot that also is yours.

I am his spot! He must sit lean or sprawl on me.

Threatening the claws
Haha! Great thinking!!! I don't have that problem since I gave the cat the good chair (all together now: SUCKER!) but I do have a different problem. If I move from one room to another, the cat follows me. I love it that she's such a sociable girl, but sometimes it makes me feel bad that she follows me to one room and then I leave and she follows me to another room and I leave . . . and so forth. Housework makes me feel guilty! My kitty is a tabby like yours but with yellow eyes. I think I'm totally besotted with tabbies, now. She's my second tabby and both have been ridiculously smart, curious, lovable cats (but not lap cats).

Re: Threatening the claws
I love tabbies, this is my first one. She's not a lap cat but she does like to stay close. Or worse yet, walk all over me whilst kneading.

Bwahahahaha....too funny....

I still use the old water bottle trick, but your way seems less messy. :) Got a trick for kids, too?

Sorry, no experience in that department. Probably just as well, it's scary what I might come up with :p

About me

After spending the day job chasing contractors for money I like nothing better than to settle down into my favorite chair with a book and the cat and immerse myself in the past. I've been reviewing on Amazon for several years and just started this LJ blog for fun and to share my love of books with others. I must be doing something right, last time I checked Amazon said I had 49 fans!

I get most of my books from the library with the occasional ARC from Amazon Vine (although my success rate with that program is poor to middling). I know most people shy from writing critical reviews and maintain the old adage "if you can't say something nice...." but after making the mistake of reading Pillars of the Earth I discovered that if I had looked at those one and two star reviews I would have thought twice before wasting time and money. Not every book is for every person - even with those I have very similar reading tastes.

Favorite authors (in no particular order), Sharon Kay Penman, Elizabeth Chadwick, Dorothy Dunnett, Anya Seton, Daphne Du Maurier and last but not least Dumas Pere'.
