My girl Chicken

Dude! why is my favourite lap getting so small?

Chicken is not sure that the expanding belly is such a good idea.

Where is she supposed to sit?

She also wants to know why people write an FET instead of  a FET. If someone could explain it to me, I can transmit that valuable information to her.

  1. Oh, the look of a peeved cat! Slinky also did not like having to negotiate belly/lap space, especially when Gwen started kicking her.

    And perhaps Chicken would be convinced by the explanation that some people are reading FET as "eff-ee-tee", which is why it gets "an" instead of "a"?

  3. I like anryanhwy's idea. Still, it makes me CRAZY that people do that.

    Yay for growing bellies!

  4. You already got your answer on the "a" vs "an" so I'll leave that alone. My Smokey went through a phase where she would not walk on my mid-section for anything but still enjoyed laying in my lap. However, she has since decided that walking on the belly works just fine as a pathway to my lap. Granted, now that the belly is big and I sit with my legs spread a bit wider, she only half lays on my lap...the other half of her is on the couch. She seems happy with this arrangement for a little while. What really cracks me up is when she leaves me to go an lay on my husband's lap, all the while givine me the evil eye.

    I love that your belly is growing! You will be surprised at how quickly everything changes once the belly really grows!

  7. My most favorite memory og being pregnant was a night I couldn't sleep and Hawthorne lay next to me with his whole body pressed against the left side of my belly. He purred his usual free, loud, earth shaking purr. After about two hours, he got up and I discovered P had shifted himself to be up against Hawthorne. I was apx 6-7 mo. along.

  8. This is what I was picturing when you mentioned Chicken in your lap the other night! She looks great, though (albeit a bit peeved). I know she'll be happy to have a) your lap back and b) a new human family member in just a few months. Hooray for growing bellies!!! XOXO, Oat

    1. Though I guess gummy bear might provide some competition for lap space!

  10. Ah, chicken. You're a beauty:) Yes, our dog was uncertain, too. Especially when the lump would occasionally kick him in the head (he did like to cuddle up next to the warm mound, even at the height of summer:)

  11. Ha ha Chicken! Our cat Max didn't seem to mind my expanding belly. However, I distinctly remember one occasion not long after the boys were born when they were both crying very loudly. We were all in the living room. Max was asleep on the chair, woke up to their howling and, while shooting me the MEANEST look the whole time, proceeded to exit out the cat door. Seriously, the cat didn't even look where he was going; he just gave me the 'stink eye' the whole time! Chicken is going to be in for quite a surprise in a few months!!

  12. Chicken is boo-tee-ful!!! Love her character and I think she is totally right to feel pissed that her favourite lap is being occupied. She's georgeous. x

  13. Just you wait, Chicken! The lap WILL come back, but there will be a new danger of TAIL PULLING. Now might be the time to do that "backpack across Europe" thing you've always talked about doing.

  14. Ah Chicken, how your life is going to change! My poor dogs still haven't recovered from Adam's arrival! The thought of your expanding belly makes me smile - lots! I'd love to see a belly picture if you're comfortable putting one up!
