Who’s in my seat?

We have many comfortable places in the house for the cats to sit or nap.

On top of the sofa, with a good view out of the window into the backyard.

On the bench their dad built them.


On a window seat.


On a cat tree.

We have cat beds galore, soft throws in just the right places. What more could a cat want in seating choices?

Apparently, Mama’s seat.

When I read, I normally sit in a comfortable chair in the living room beside a good lamp. Sometimes Connor sits at my feet. Isn’t that sweet? 

Sometimes, even when I’m in the middle of a good book, I get up to get some water or a snack or go to the bathroom.

Lately, when I return to read, I find this. 


Hmmm. Was he just waiting for me to get up all along?

I pat him on the head, pick up my book, and move to another place. After all, whose chair is it really? 

So if you hear, “Who’s in my seat?” in my house, it might be Connor asking the question.


  1. Surely you just like keeping your mom's seat nice and toasty for her, right, Connor? Right?

  2. Sweet boy. Well, all of them. Hugs.

  3. Ah yes, we can relate! There are the "secret places" and the ones right out front! And all are her favorites!

  5. That happens to me quite a bit...Ernie is the usual culprit. ~Island Cat Mom

  6. I think it is in the Secret Rule Book of Cats, that they MUST steal our seat the second we get up MOL!! catchatwithcarenandcody

  7. we kept my dog separated from parts of the house so she wouldn't destroy anything many years ago. She got "free" one day and we found her sleeping in the living room chair.

  8. Hehehe...Connor gets the best seat that way!

  9. Awww....that is a sweet photo of Connor. Lately, Phoebe does that to her Dad's chair.

  10. Hey, your momma isn't supposed to MOVE you! What can she be thinking? Never disturb the sleeping kitteh.

  11. So cute! One of my cats does this to me. But then I'm not surprised. I am her favourite person and I think she enjoys being wherever there is a scent of me :)

  12. So many awesome places to choose from! But mama's seat is always best.
