Why isn’t my cat a lap cat? — 3 Comments

  1. He is not the typical long-haired cat. His hair is somewhat long but is smooth rather than fluffy. His sister is the opposite. We decided she is a Korat, short haired and loves to find warmth. She was rescued at 6 months so I don’t know how she was treated as a baby.

  2. My male is NOT a lap cat. 🙁 Much to my disappointment. When he was a baby, he would nap in my lap. As he got older, he would nap elsewhere. It soon became obvious that he didn’t like sitting on my lap because he was very hot-natured. Now that he is 10, he occasionally returns to my lap for short naps during colder weather. I don’t know if that is because he is cold or if he is arthritic, although I haven’t seen any signs.

    • He may get too hot. He may be the sort of cat who doesn’t like to feel too hot. Is he long haired? There is also character. A pure preference thing. My cat loves heat and loves my lap, legs you name it!
