Gordon, our adopted cat, is not much for human contact. When we first met, she wriggled herself into a frenzy to avoid human contact. The only way you can hold her is upside down on her back, much like rock-a-by baby. She will only sleep on top of your bed covers ad certainly never higher up than you knees.
Once, she came and curled up in my lap on my bed.
Tonight, she came and snuggled up in my arm/chest, because I had my knees up, lying on my back.
It was a moment of comfort, that I knew she was uncomfortable about. This shot was as good as I could get without disturbing her.
