A few days ago, for the first time, Her Ladyship jumped into my lap for a cuddle.
An acquaintance of mine had a term for this: sub feline—Latin for "underneath a cat." If one was sub feline, one did not have to answer the phone or the door. Other members of the household would do that... until they found themselves beneath a cat as well.
A few minutes after this photograph was taken, Her Ladyship decided that cuddle time was over and went off to take care of various catly affairs. But oh, it was nice to be sub feline for a little while.
