Why, after all, do I give my dog the space to do so? Well, the answer is that the dog is a cat.
A cat is a cat is a cat. It’s pretty self-explanatory. Of course, if you’re a cat, it might be a little difficult to understand. But if you’re a dog, it should be pretty easy to understand that it is simply a cat. A cat is a cat is a cat.
I suppose if you could explain why a cat wants to lay in your arms, that would be pretty easy. A dog thinks it can get from A to B in a couple of minutes. A cat can do it in a few seconds.
So why do dogs want to lay on you? They don’t, except when they’re trying to get out of their own way or something. They like to get their paws on you. Dogs don’t like to be bothered and cats don’t like to be bothered. So when a cat is laying on your lap, it’s like, “Hey, dog! I don’t get you. You’re not helping me.” So you’ve got to take care of your dog.
Dogs who are laying on your lap will often jump up and back away from you after a few minutes. This is because they have a “sneaky” sense of smell. If dogs really wanted to get at you, they would smell you and know they could jump up and away from you in a few seconds. Most dogs, though, have no such sense of smell, so they will continue to lay on your lap whether or not you are there.
This, by the way, is the opposite of what you should do. You should just stand there and let your dog get comfortable. If you leave your dog alone, you’re inviting a snoop to get at you. And in the end, your dog is going to get very uncomfortable and you might not want to be there to make it easier for them.
I can only imagine the amount of time it takes for a dog to get comfortable in your presence. So if you just let them get comfortable, they will eventually fall asleep and you might want to take a break. If you leave them alone though, they will continue to snore and lay at your feet all night.
It’s almost like cats and dogs are really, really close to each other. I suppose it’s a bit like cats and dogs. Both have an unconscious instinct to protect their own. Both are equally as vulnerable to injury if they are left alone.
This is actually a very common misconception. Dogs aren’t actually as vulnerable to injury as cats are. Cats are much more likely to get bit, and even die. Dogs aren’t any more likely to get bit. Cats may feel more pain but they aren’t much more likely to die.
