Wordless Wednesday – The Best Seat In The House

Magellan and His Dad - June 2016

Quote Of The Week

Cats can work out mathematically the exact place to sit
That will cause most inconvenience.

The Best Seat In The House

Magellan and Dad - June 2016

Those of you who do not live with cats and are not familiar with their ways may have heard the myth that they can be rather aloof creatures. Today, Magellan would like to demonstrate that nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, some cats bond so closely with their humans that maintaining one’s personal space can be a challenge at times!

Magellan And Dad 2

Over the years, we have had a number of kittens who have enjoyed riding around our shoulders when they were little. As you can see, not every kitten outgrows this habit! It takes a lot of trust and love on both sides for this type of relationship to develop – and a lot of physical strength to maintain it (Magellan now weighs over 16 pounds!)

Magellan delights in having his humans underfoot. Do we have any other shoulder riders in the house?

    My dog wants to be on top of the couch and sometimes that means she’s sitting on stop of my head!

  4. That is adorable and I bet he has the best seat in the house! Thanks for hosting. Have a great week!

  5. Peyton says:

    I have five cats since they were kittens and they all rode on my shoulders. They are older now and all have stopped but one. He is two and he will still get on my shoulders and just ride.

  6. It is his house. You just happen to live there.

    That cat is huge!!

    Sooooo cute! Thanks for sharing these fun pics and for always hosting great hops!

  9. Claire says:

    Aww, looks like someone is nice and comfy 🙂

  10. Definitely the best seat!

  11. Purrseidon likes the vantage point shoulders provide, too…. This wasn’t so bad when she was tiny. Unfortunately, she has grown, but I haven’t.

  12. Amila says:

    Aww… so cute to see these photos.

  13. Charles says:

    What a large cat – wow! My two cats do not sit on my shoulders like that, but will occasionally sit on my head at night. Thank you for sharing the funny pics with us!

  14. meowmeowmans says:

    Magellan, that looks pretty comfortable! And your human’s getting a nice workout. Win-win! 🙂

  15. Karen W says:

    How cute. Though I admit, it looks a mite uncomfortable.

  16. S'more Dogs says:

    Perch likes to perch (not why I named him that!) on people’s shoulders; especially if they have long hair he can chew on!

  17. Sylvia says:

    That’s really funny. My daughter’s cat always want to sit on the keyboard when she is trying to work. 🙂

  18. Ellen Pilch says:

    Great shots, Magellan is a sweetie.

  19. Kitties Blue says:

    Magellan, we think you might be a wee bit spoiled. Mom says she couldn’t even imagine carrying around 16 pounds of cat on her shoulders. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    Finally made it over. It’s been one of those days. Thanks for hosting.

  21. I saw a man walking down the street the other day with his cat just like this. It’s too funny.

  22. Emily says:

    This is too funny!

    What I want to know is does Magellan give a good back scratch or cat rum back there?? LOL It looks like that’s what she is ready to do next. My dog loves to go to sleep in our room and lays by the door and watches over us as we sleep. I think that’s kinda neat.

  24. Robin says:

    That is quite a lot of fur to wear on your neck! Magellan is so cute. 🙂 Manna likes to ride on shoulders once in a while. She always picks awkward times to jump up there!

  25. That quote by Pam Brown is right on the spot! Fortunately my cat is not a shoulder rider. He’s more of a lad addict 🙂

  26. Melissa says:

    So cute. Piper loves to sit on his Dad’s back too!

  27. Shadow says:

    Hehehe. That is funny, and a lot of work for dad at least. The only shoulder ride at our house was during a trial ride on a pedal kayak. I was quite irritated after that I had not gotten a picture of it. Enjoy your tall place Magellan.

  28. We have cats and yes we have walked like this in the house haha! Sometimes they just cling to your legs which is not very good if you are not wearing jeans as you will have patterns on your skin! Such a sweet capture =)

    No shoulder rider, but Arya is a chest cat. She likes to sleep on my chest. Guess it’s lucky I have ample room. lol I did have a shoulder rider at one time. My beloved Lily, although she wasn’t big like Magellan.

    Magellan is such a card. Love him. 🙂

  30. it surely is :)..so comfy up there :)..

  31. The cat looks super comfy – it’s you that I’m concerned about LOL Cute photos!

  32. Lindsay says:

    Adorable! Does Magellan stay atop your shoulders when you walk around or just perch when sitting?

    Beautiful cat. 🙂

  33. Jean Dion says:

    Popoki is just starting to think about doing this. She started with scalp grooming when I’m sitting in my high-back chair. She’s just putting her toes on my shoulders now, in order to get a better angle for her licking. It feels sooooo weird, but I know she does it because she loves me. I try to put up with it!
