My floof is free to go whichever way it wants when I sleep on Mom's lap. I've helped to make Mom's day again, by sleeping on her lap for a few minutes. I don't usually do this, but Mom's shoulder was hurting from PT yesterday, so I gave her some special Praline loving by climbing on her lap and lying down. Some of the "freedom" of my floof is because Mom was rubbing her fingers through my floof.
It's very important to keep the Mom happy every once in a while, even for a Diva ladycat like me!
