I weighed this cat last night and was surprised to find she only weighs 7 pounds. She lays on top of me every chance she gets and feels like at least 15 pounds. Every time I lay down or sit down she's on top of me quick. In the middle of the night I wake to find her on top of me, stretched out with her legs over my sides soaking up my warmth. She makes quite a bit of heat of her own and I find myself sweating a lot. I don't want to be mean to her but I'm getting tired of being a cat warmer. My old body's about wore out and can't take much more of this.
That's my rant for today.

Well just be delicate with the affectionate cat, you don't want to hurt her feelings. Personally, I love a purring cat on top of me. You can feel the love eminating from the little creature. At night, I just close the bedroom door on her, so she can prowl through the house.

Same problem here. I now turn on the overhead fan at night and use a lighter quilt. Problem solved and my kitty stays on me. Emotion: smile

Aside from keeping warm, your cat is also expressing her affection for you.
It's bitterly cold where I am. I would be glad to have a cat to help me stay warm.
Sadly, my senior citizen kitty has never been much of a 'lap cat'. She spends most of the winter on her electrically heated bed. I'm sure it's much warmer than I am Emotion: smile

That's neat that you give that poor old animal a heated bed. I'm sure it means life to her.
But the kind of warmth cats want I don't think is that kind of warmth. At least not for the most part.
Cats want to be close.
Mine really does. I can't keep her away from me.
She just wants to snooze on my lap.
She is only 5 months old. Maybe you should try one that age.

Then explain why Espy likes to hang out on top of the cable box (which radiates enough heat to heat a small room).
All cats are different. Very rarely will Espy sit on my lap but it is a great honor when he does. Marlo, Nipsy, and new boy Scooter love lap sitting.
Amber loves her heated window seat but refuses to sit on my lap. Tiger likes to sit on my lap (all 24 pounds of him) but doesn't care about his heated window seat.

Does Espy purr on top of the cable box?
Sure, all cats are different.
Some like to stay by themselves altogether.

Tiger is 24 pounds? I thought my cat was big at 5 pounds! What do you have, a mountain lion?
