My Penelope is not cuddly at all. She wants to be near me and sleeps close to me. The only time she is right up next to me is for a good ear scratch or a belly rub. Now my Morgan is a whole other story! He apparently never got the memo that Bengals aren't supposed to be lap cats! I only brought them home Tuesday evening and as of last night if I am sitting he is in my lap. It's funny but with the previous owners they were the opposite. She was the more cuddly of the two.

It's ironic how cats can be so different and I really think it stems from the particular owner. I have a neighbor's moggie cat who comes around and thrives on attention and is all over me asking for it. Totally unlike my Bengal who only comes to me for for treats, food, and getting ready for his daily walks. The rest of the time, I'm good for nothing except belly rubs. HE gets the attention and cuddles, not me.

As cats mature the alpha position can go from one to the other. Generally Grace rules my house, but lately Blondie is sitting in all Grace's preferred sitting perches and Grace is somewhere below. Grace did not allow Blondie to sleep on the bed with me and a few months ago that changed and every night Blondie sleeps by my head now. Blondie has become very attached to me and is always by my side the way she was as a kitten before Grace put a stop to it out of jealousy. I hope Grace is softening with age. I make sure to pet and brush her as often as she demands it.

Charlie is not cuddly, but he is the biggest lap cat going! He prefers my lap, probably because I leave him alone, whereas my husband tries to fuss him and if he just wants to sleep, he hates being messed with! Strangely though, he allows my husband to hold him, but not me!

I can pick Raiden up for about 10 seconds and he fights to get down, although the other day, I walked him all the way around the house to come in from our walk and he was fine. Go figure!

This is more or less our experience with Pixel. She won't struggle right away, and if you start caressing her cheeks she will sit a lot longer, but once she's had enough she'll let you know very quickly.

She doesn't seem to like being touched too often, but last night she was running around so I sat on the ground and she kept rubbing on my leg and walking across my lap for pets. Then I got up, and she resumed normal psychotic kitten behavior.

Not a lap cat? This is Charlie's favourite pose!

Magic is not a lap cat, he likes to lie beside me on the sofa, at night when I'm asleep he will stand next to me until I put one of my pillows along side me then he gets on it with his head under my chin and I put arm around him then we sleep until he gets too hot, he always has to sleep either touching me or my husband but only sleeps on my pillow

Thomas hates to be picked up and refuses to sit in my lap. Other than that, he always wants to be nearby and often underfoot and loves to be petted. He will put up with hugs and secretly likes kisses. He also likes to snuggle up for naps. When I come back from medical tests he goes into hyperprotective overdrive and snuggles up against me with his entire body.

Ours are cuddly enough:
Echo is OK with being picked and loves having her belly rubbed - just don't trust her when she offers her belly and attention, she can shred you to bits in an instant
Ishka hates being picked up but always comes to where we are and does the purrry "sausage" on the floor (she knows we cannot resist it!)
They are cuddly at 4 am - used to come into the bedroom and sleep nearby - lots of patting on our face and rubbing heads ... now they sleep outside for obvious reasons.
The boyfriend and I fight over who can entice each of the kitties to sit on them: trick seems to be using the hairy blanket... they fight for that spot.
If they do not come over we just grab them, poor souls, and cuddle them whether they like it or not, I think we are scarring them for life... All in all I think it should be the cats doing a poll on who is the most annoying touchy-feely human/slave/hairless-blob-who-serves-food

Well I haven't got a Bengal so haven't voted but though I'd tell you about my two anyway!

They are both very affectionate towards me in particular. I can pretty much pick both of them up no problem and they will both immediately start purring loudly every time I approach them.

Jasper loves to be held and he will put himself over your shoulder and start kneading away ouch! I often have to prise him off me as he refuses to budge!

Oscar is much more delicate both in size and temperament and likes to be treated gently like a little baby.

I'm very lucky to have a pair of cuddly kittens :mrgreen:

Yuki gives the best cuddles when he's sleepy or first woken up ….doesn't mind being picked up but defiantly not a lap cat. Funny when people visit & meet him for the first time & expect a cuddle…he gives them about 30 seconds tops of his time :lol:


Yes, that's it! :biggrin:

Very old photo I think she was around 2 so 14 years ago but this was how she was whenever I was doing any work on my computer, I'm an Illustrator and Concept artist so she liked to help me lol.
Although omg the shame of those jeans but hey I was 20 then that's my excuse anyway and also the podge oh dear :lol:

I'm wondering if my little girl was strange for a female because she loved cuddles she used to come under the covers in my bed and cuddle me at night. She was similar to a ragdoll I would pick her up and she would just go limp in my arms. Or she would come over and wrap her paws around my wrist or something if I was on my iPad or laptop and she was always on my lap when I was working on my PC.

Mika is VERY cuddly ... but always on her terms. She will always come to you and ask for pets and will sit and accept scritches and pets for EVER ... but she does not like to sit on you (just next to you) and she will NOT tolerate being picked up under any circumstances. She doesn't get violent, she just meows like you're trying to kill her and struggles to get away ... then proceeds to come back over with a little bengal chatter and ask for more pets ... :rolleyes:

I consider her to be VERY affectionate, but other people always comment on how skittish and standoffish she is. She is quite wary of strangers and is generally choosy about who she interacts with. She is always rubbing against my legs and when we are sleeping, she must always be touching me. It's pretty cute :)

Out of my two new kittens both are cuddly, Arya is extremely cuddly she loves being picked up, carried around and she actively seeks out cuddles she also likes to sleep cuddled up in my arms like a teddy.

Griffith it's more on his own terms when it comes to being picked up but he does ask to be picked up and cuddled sometimes. I always find him fast asleep next to me and Arya at night but he is more about being next to me than on my lap.
