Mrs. B is not usually a lapcat. Even when it is cold she prefers her pillow next to the heater rather than my lap. She will jump on the couch for some scritches, but then leave once she has had enough. But here she is on the couch with me (yes, that big lump in front of her is my legs). She is watching TV and maybe that is why she is on the couch. She has a better view of the TV from the couch than from her pillow.
