Mister Gato is a shoulder cat. He has never, in the years that he has been a member of our family, been a lap-sitter.
At approximately 1:15 PM Eastern Daylight Time on August 12, 2007, something went wrong in Mister Gato's wiring... and we had a nice, long, lap-sit. I have no idea what triggered this... Carrie has been traveling for a few days, and perhaps he was just a little needier than usual.
Anyway, a nice long lap-sit.
I managed to get one decent documentary photo of this with the iPhone. I hope this trend continues, because it's a hell of a lot easier to type with Mister G. on your lap than on your shoulder.
