Do your cats let you carry them? Mine doesn't :(

My 8 month old cat wont let me hold her... ok she gives me 10 seconds of calmness, then she starts arching her back or uses her legs to try to kick out of me

My cats will only let me carry them if they're in the right mood. Mojo is better about it than Jinx. Jinx will be calm for about 2.5 seconds then out come the claws and teeth!!

My cats love to be carried.. as long as you hold them the right way..

Tierney will only let me carry him if he can see over my shoulder, but hugs me when i do.. Teagan will let me carry her any time any way.

I have been holding them both since the moment they got home.. i think that helps.. i don't think either of them walked for the first month they were home!!

Ya, both Nya and Buddy let me carry them. I can hold them any way i like, slung over a shoulder, like babies, hugging, anything they don't care

Sometimes they'll squirm when they've had enough, but that's rare, and I usually put them down because i'm tired before they've had enough!

Electra, 2 yrs, wont let us carry her... apparantly with past owners she began to associate being carried with going to the vet. So, she squirms and meows and wiggles until you have to drop her. But sometimes when she's really calm or tired she'll let me carry her but nobody else.

Antigone, 8 months, she let's us carry her (just my bf and I and nobody else) but after a while she gets restless and wants down. We try and carry her as much as possible so that she'll become used to it.

Thats like Bumper - I hold him under my arm like a football and he likes to sit over my shoulder with his legs hanging down my back.

But all my cats let me carry them - they are pretty used to being handled and don't mind it at all - Boomer likes to be able to see over my shoulder though - but will just squirm to see over my shoulder rather than squirm from my arms.

Zoee likes to be held like a baby. She wraps her bottom legs around my waist and puts her top legs around my shoulder. She actually will look at you asking to be picked up. Zoee would like for me to carry her all day every day!

Lamar will exclusively only let me hold him and no one else!!!

Zack will let you hold him, but it depends on his mood and usually isn't for long periods of time.

Shelly - cool avatar!

My cats were both adults when I adopted them. At first I couldn't pick them up but I can when I need to but they don't like it. I love my 2 girls but it would be nice to have a cuddler!
