I don't own a cat but my neighbor's cat literally hugged me to death. I was giving it a gentle brushing while it was resting on my arm and chest and it suddenly clung on my neck with claws out. I freaked out as a result since it was hugging me too tightly. I threw it off in fright and it clung on my legs. Suffered lots of bloody scratches as a result. I swore to myself I'll never hug a cat again. Dogs are fine in my book.

Lennox was one adorable kitten, wasn't he!

Clyde also likes to climb under the blanket when it's cold. But first he will spend about half an hour kneading the covers before he decides to climb under them.

Kymmie, I think it's awesome that your cat will jump up into your arms. Did he just naturally do that or did you train him to?

Never mind his 3 nice soft cushiony cat beds, he kicked the disgustingly ugly pekingese out of his bed. Probably by force.

iamgray, Lennox is adorable. He looks to be so sweet in personality.
Thanks! He is a sweetheart, but only towards people who treat him with utter disdain, or at the very least, indifference. My boyfriend's daughter is always going after him and picking him up and trying to cuddle him... and he'll have none of that. He's completely in love with my boyfriend though... who throws Lennox back on the floor every time he tries to cuddle, pulls his tail, flicks his ears, etc. I pretty much ignore him and let him come cuddle up when he feels like it... which is pretty often. When I'm sitting down and he's feeling extra sucky, he'll come up and stand on his hind legs with his front paws on my thighs and look up at me, waiting for me to pick him up (like a toddler putting its arms up hehehe). He's definitely my baby.

The cutest EVER! When he still had to get bottlefed, I used to take him to work in a giant cardboard box, and he definitely melted hearts - no easy feat considering the majority of my coworkers are gruff farm boys. Every coffee break he had a lineup of welders wanting to cuddle him hehe.

LITERALLY?!?!??! AAAAAAAACK! HE'S POSTING FROM BEYOND THE GRAAAAAAVE!!!!

Haha sorry... couldn't resist. Cats can be scary when it comes to that sort of thing though... the random freakouts where they're just all claws... I have a friend who was attacked by a barn cat and had to go in to the hospital for stitches because it ripped his face up so badly. Another friend used to breed Siamese cats, and one of them freaked out and clawed her arm to shreds, and wouldn't stop... they managed to get it into the trunk of her car and took it immediately to get put down, and the vet techs had to keep it pinned in the trunk with a stick and inject it right there in the trunk because the cat just would not stop. They can definitely do some damage when they snap.

Yes, it's the most awesome thing. He will walk up, stand in front of me, and give me "the look" that means he's gonna jump up into my arms, or I can call him, he runs up, I pat my chest, and up he comes.

I "think" I trained him to do this. The first time he did it (which was a fluke) I gave him huge praise. Then, to reinforce it, Wade & I each kept these irresistible chicken treats in our pockets, and everytime he did it we rewarded him with a treat. He's also the type of cat that when you call his name, he comes running, even if he's off somewhere curled up sleeping. That was taught with treats also. And they say cats aren't trainable, bah!
