I sort of agree with that concept,
when carrying a cat, that has a tendency to be timid or scared when being picked up by humans,
i hold them snuggly and close to your body.
I tend to find cradling them like a baby works.
We have some cats though that can be handled easily and like being held like a baby over your shoulder in a burping like position.
Holding a cat too gently or away from the body; tend to get squirmy and will likely want to bolt out of your arms.

Sugar trying to help me figure out what is wrong with Motordome post full restore.
She said the schematics seem to indicate it is just a fuse.

One of our Norwegian forest cats... Both were rescues. None of the cats here like pinball when it is being played though.

Yes! I declare that all future pinball machine raffle winners must come from the "Cats and Pinballs... " thread and must post a photo of said cats on the new machine.

Congrats on the new cat tree.

I am devastated. My baby boy Oreo died suddenly yesterday. He was my true pal and such a sweet boy. He was only 6. There were no signs of distress, and he seemed fine when I left for work. He ate his breakfast as usual, cuddled with me for a bit until I had to leave. When I came home, I found him lying under the piano. From his position it looked like he just went to sleep. No soil or blood anywhere, no vomit. Nothing strange in the litter boxes. I pray he did not suffer at all. I love you, My Oreo!

Night Moves was one of his favorite places to rest!

Sorry for your loss. we also had one that died very similar, he was playing with our other cat and then just drop dead from a heart attack. He was only three years old.

Here she is again attempting to 'help' my progress in finishing up the Motordome.
She knows RIGHT were the parts are I need, and of course proceeds to lay on them.
At least the assortment of parts bags has gotten smaller!

I have one cat who ALWAYS does this. Whenever I head downstairs she tears down after me and jumps on whatever machine I am playing. I am currently shopping out a Capcom Pinball Magic, which is a new experience for me, as I’m used to WPC pins.

Anyway I have everything all laid out in place on a table next to the machine as i clean and polish everything - and out of the corner of my eye I see her laying on half the parts, slowly pushing a growing pile of parts off the damn side! I couldn’t even be mad, how did I not think this was exactly what would happen?

RIP Oreo!
What makes it all the more sad is the unexpectedness of his passing at a relatively young age.

We will still be sad, but somewhat prepared as our eldest, Jack, approaches 17 yrs.
My wife feels this will be his last year, but I am hoping he makes it to 20.

Very sorry for your loss, what a nightmare. Rest in peace Oreo.

Wesley agrees with Oreo. Night Moves is a great pin to rest on.

Sorry to hear about Oreo, I had a cat named Oreo, they looked very similar, beautiful cat. Sounds like he went quick and painless, sometimes that's better than going slow and painful. I know that probably doesn't help much but sorry for your loss.

I bet the tabby likes incandescent bulbs and the fancy long hair likes LEDs.

Quoted from Toucanf16:

I'm sure he did. Dogs have masters, cats have staff.

#1934 4 months ago

When I wouldn't stop to give them a treat the orange one went outside and found some mud then walked over the glass on 2 games that I didn't have covered. Next time I will bribe them and take their recommendations. The tabby has to go into every pinball when it is opened - he is more like a dog than a cat.

Do your cats chase bugs? Molly has been hunting bugs all week, so it is only fitting that she finally found the Centipede machine.

That’s the future of pinball right there. If we can get them interested, they’ll keep it alive. Who says analog is dead.
