Full Lap, Big Smiles

This is our friend John.  The other night, for the very first time in his life, John held a kitten.

Actually, five of them.

"Am I doing this right?" he asked.

He was, and we handed him another kitten.

"Oh, no, no, no, not another one. This is too much!"

So, we handed him another kitten.

And another.

Then one more.

And John successfully corraled five wiggly kittens on his lap.

Our smiles were as huge as John's as we watched this sweet scene.

    2. An armful (or lapful) of kittens adds to the appeal like "RAWR!". Know what I mean? ;)

  4. And he's wearing a draw-string hoodie, always a bit hit with cats. Clearly he's a natural. :)

    1. That was my first thought! The cat mojo is strong with John.

      I am not sure his smile could have gotten any bigger. What a great bunch of pics! I hope he is able to get a kitten of his own some time soon.

  8. Real Men make laps for kittens and love it! Good Job John (and Lori for teaching him how).

  9. Is it too much to hope that (at least) one of the Huddlestons will find a furrever home with John?

    I have it on good authority that men named John are exceptional cat dads (my hubby is named John).

    1. Men named Brian make A+ cat dads as well. The hubby of a friend is steadfastly devoted to their ten cats and an attentive foster dad to the cats who are temporary residents.

  10. And so begins the story of how one man who had never held a kitten, suddenly ends up adopting a litter of Huddlestons and living happily ever after with five little loves. :)

    The joy on John's face is apparent, and brought a smile to mine as well. I hope he ends up with a Huddleston or two!

  13. The little one who is climbing him seems to be claiming him :)

    "I like this human..."

  14. So cute! Which Huddleston(s) is/are going home with John???

  15. Could you publish a "Men holding kittens" calendar for us? :-)

    1. That would be a bargain at twice the price - whatever the price is!

  16. John is a born kitten wrangler. Good work, John. :-) -- ps, agree about the need for a "men holding kittens" calendar. :-)

  17. Oh that 2nd to last one where the kitten is smiling....John is a natural with kittens.

  18. The obvious glee in his smile gave me the same perma-smile. I've never watched an adult hold a kitten for the first time. What a treat!

    ReplyDelete
  19. This is the cutest thing ever. I have a crush on all six of them (5 Huddlestons + John).

  20. Be still my heart! A handsome man with a lap full of kittens. *swoon*

    ReplyDelete
  21. Aw. He's having so much fun. For some reason I love to see big guys melting over little kittens.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh John, you are so lucky! An arm/lapful of kittens is one of life's greatest joys :) The smile says it all.

  23. I would have to say this is probably my favorite post of yours of all time, and I have been following you for several years now. :D
