I have two cats and one lap. That equation sometimes yields a fight.

Tammy secured my lap yesterday evening while I was sitting at my desk working on my laptop. She was lying sweetly resting across my legs when Georgie entered the room.

At first Georgie was content to lie on the floor a few feet away, but then she decided she wanted to be up in my lap as well.

She stands up on her paws to touch my thighs with her front paws, like a toddler who reaches up on their parent wanting to be picked up. She does this several times until Tammy decides it's time to defend her territory.

In fact, she did it so many times, I happened to have the camera ready and caught the action. Tammy held her ground, and stayed in my lap to win the fight, and Georgie scampered off to the other side of the room.
