Lola can be quite a fickle creature. Sometimes she’s wild and aloof. She’ll run around like a crazy thing, yelling at the top of her voice. Often at these times her tail is puffed up like some kind of black squirrel and she develops an odd mohawk along her lower back.
Other times she is the soppiest, cuddliest creature you’ve ever met. If one of us is lazying on the bed she’ll jump up onto our tummies, pad for a good while, and then settled down. Given the choice she’d stay there for hours!
She doesn’t usually jump up on our laps when we’re sitting on our computer chairs. (Perhaps she would if we were sitting on a sofa, but we don’t have one!) But she will come into laps if we sit on the floor near her when she’s in a sweet mood. And again would gladly stay for hours, if only it was practical for us humans to let her.
I suppose in a way she’s sometimes cuddly even when not cuddling, if that makes any sense. Her favourite places to sleep tend to be the places that are close to us – the top of husband’s computer, the Princess Pod – so I guess you could consider that non-contact cuddling! Okay sure, that’s a thing I just made up. But it makes sense to me at least!
