When we first got Olive, she tried to be a lap cat. The only problem was that Hazel is on my lap constantly and doesn’t like to share.
Any time Olive tried to climb on and be part of the group, Hazel would get furious and do the “pat, pat, pat, pat, pat” thing that I put in so many of the comics. I would always break them up and try to explain to Olive that she could sit with us, but she would always just accept that it wasn’t her spot and go sit by herself. It’s silly, but it still makes me a little sad sometimes.
