Captain is a wee snuggly cat who likes to lap sit and crawl under the covers with you. He doesn’t like being HELD, per se, but occasionally he will tolerate it for short periods of time (generally, the amount of time it takes to look out the window, cry a couple times, and then get bored).
Billy, on the other hand, is a BIG kitty who is paranoid and fidgety and WANTS to sit on your lap but either doesn’t fit or gets scared and runs away when shift your weight or cough. He so desperately wants to be held and snuggled.
I do my best.
