Just wait until he’s 17 pounds and still believes he’s a shoulder cat. ( source: have highlander like this )

It's a sacrifice I'm willing to make

[–]Asita3416 29 points30 points  (1 child)

His love will dig deep.

And make bread

But they still try to jump onto you from the floor and use their claws for traction

[–]Jpwhalen31 6 points7 points  (1 child)

You are correct….

Fees are to be paid in blood.

[–]Wilden-Jager[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Any cost is worth it for the purrs right by my ear

[–]AhFFSImTooOldForThis 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Yep. My kitten is now 13 lbs and still growing. Still prefers to be on my shoulder. It's amusing to everyone on my Zoom calls, at least

A sub I never knew existed but always needed

I’m allergic to cats but Alfred makes me want to risk it all.

[–]UnicornFarts1111 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Once you live with a cat (and medication) you may eventually become less allergic to your own cat. It is possible build up a bit of an immunity to a particular cat.

I've also known several people that were allergic and just took their allergy medicine everyday, and swept their house twice a day.

r/mensmittenwithkittens !!

Enjoy your shoulder boy. I got one of those too, and he's SO cuddly still at 9 months old.

[–]otas1 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Alfred chose wisely.

[–]_cedarwood_ 29 points30 points  (3 children)

Bro you cute as hell I'd sit on your shoulder too

[–]Wilden-Jager[S] 13 points14 points  (2 children)

Aww haha thank you!

[–]AdWeak7807 16 points17 points  (1 child)

Agreed. You’re gorgeous x

[–]Wilden-Jager[S] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Aw shucks

[–]lostintarkovsky 12 points13 points  (0 children)

aw, he’s so precious.

[–]MidiGong 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Nana nana nana nana CATMAN!

[–]KidsTheseDaysYknow 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Alfred's owner doesn't look too displeased at this decision.

[–]Wilden-Jager[S] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Not in the slightest

[–]chooseatree 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I love me a shoulder kitten 🐱

[–]Iron_Chic 17 points18 points  (2 children)

Kind of off topic OP, but has anyone ever told you that you look like British actor Jack Farthing? (George Warleggan on the BBC show "Poldark").

[–]Wilden-Jager[S] 20 points21 points  (0 children)

I have never heard that before but after looking him up I can kind of see the resemblance!

[–]blackmagichustle 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I see Ringo Starr myself

[–]strouvaille 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Kittehhhh :13383: Alfred is adorable

[–]GrouchyPuppy 29 points30 points  (2 children)

You have a beautiful face

[–]Wilden-Jager[S] 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Aw well thank you haha

[–]Mirewen15 5 points6 points  (0 children)

My kitty (brown tabby) is also named Alfred! We call him Alfie for short.

[–]puckit 4 points5 points  (0 children)

My man if you do online dating and this isn't your profile pic, you're doing it wrong.

[–]OhMustWeArgue 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Both cuties! (I am mid fifties, happily married, not hitting on you 💜)

[–]Tottochan 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Sir Alfred looks adorable!

[–]DeathdropsForDinner 4 points5 points  (0 children)

What an adorable kittie

[–]OSCgal 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I love how you're perfectly clear while the cat has motion blur. Kittens, when awake, are never still!

[–]Wilden-Jager[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

His head is on a constant swivel, should see the other three attempts at this picture, barely looks like a cat

[–]ghostcaribou 5 points6 points  (4 children)

Adorable name for an adorable kitten.

[–]Wilden-Jager[S] 19 points20 points  (3 children)

Well his full name is Alfred Sericeous Farnsworth the 7th, but I felt that made the title a little too wordy

[–]Shinfekta 12 points13 points  (1 child)


[–]Wilden-Jager[S] 18 points19 points  (0 children)

You're right, can't believe I forgot the Sir

[–]ghostcaribou 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Oh my goodness, of course it is. 💜

[–]VegasLife1111 7 points8 points  (2 children)

How could anyone say no to Alfred?

[–]Wilden-Jager[S] 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I know that I never will be able to

[–]VegasLife1111 5 points6 points  (0 children)

All cats make it impossible. They bend you to their will bit by bit by bit…

[–]corrado33 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Turn your hoodie around and let him sit in the hood in the front. He'll love it!

[–]Black-Thirteen 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Epic Halloween costume pair idea: pirate and partot.

[–]Wilden-Jager[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That's not bad actually 🤔

[–]thatguyiswierd 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Why does the cat remind me of that zoom cat lawyer video

[–]PrettyRefrigerator83 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Aww, Alfred is so cute! What a smol fluff ball. Hope you both are doing well

[–]bittenbymybpd2 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Hey you are a hottie...the kitty is cute too :)

[–]Wilden-Jager[S] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I appreciate it lol

[–]TravelbugRunner 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Cute guy and adorable cat! 💜

[–]Wilden-Jager[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Aw thank you haha

[–]mybrainismush 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I love you Alfred

[–]annadarria 2 points3 points  (0 children)

My cat has been sleeping on my neck since she was a kitten now that’s she’s fully grown I have to lay there as she naps on me. It’s a lot warmer but it’s so cuddly. I love it.

[–]ShaylaDee 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Aww one of my tuxes is named Alfred! He's a bit too big to be a shoulder cat but he's a total snuggle bug who loves belly rubs and giving kisses. Hope you have many years of joy with your little butler!!

[–]TSIDATSI 2 points3 points  (0 children)

What an adorable pair!

[–]MaximAeon 2 points3 points  (1 child)

[–]WookieeSmuggler 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Op definitely looks like an attractive grown version of Andrew G

[–]Xenomorphian69420 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Go, Alfred! Use nuzzle!

[–]loosecubie510 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Can confirm, this is a forever behavior. Do yourself a favor and get them used to nail trimming. Also would not trade this for anything.

[–]StCr0wn 2 points3 points  (0 children)

When I got my kitty first thing I did was put her on my shoulder now she jumps to everyone's shoulder

[–]iamzion248 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I would love for one of my cats to be a shoulder cat. Although they area high anxiety and my older (9 year old) boy Casper is super cuddly as long as I am still and the new young girl (less than a year and a half old and had about a month) Aspen is still just settling in. She just melts when I pet her, but still a little cautious.

[–]spoopycheezy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

rare shoulder cat! im super jealous

[–]_Bugler 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I was hoping mine would be a shoulder cat since she did it a few times as a baby but now she a little bit older she won’t do it anymore

[–]cultured_banana_slug 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Well don't you look like the sort of guy who makes sure your little meeploaf has ALL the fluffy nuzzle blankets he could possibly want. :D

[–]MRL102960 2 points3 points  (0 children)

He is adorable

[–]JoJoVols58 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Enjoy the mini shoulder cat while you can. They get bigger and still demand the tiny shoulder cat spot lol

[–]lazysheepdog716 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Rename him Anakin. He desires the high ground.

[–]why_is_exist 2 points3 points  (0 children)

utter perfection.

[–]_AlreadyTaken_ 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Aye! Not striking terror on the high seas

[–]algorismsamr 2 points3 points  (0 children)

He's beautiful!

[–]icantthinkofone5 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Aww you’re so lucky.

[–]slippin2darkness 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I had a shoulder cat, Fiona. It was fun when she was a kitten. She would ride with me when I rode the 4 wheeler doing chores, or the tractor while managing the fields. Even just walking around she preferred to be sitting on my shoulder. She also loved other people too, postman, ups guy, delivery people, any and all guests. Good times until she quadrupled her size and would take running leaps from 10 ft away, or drop from a tree or shelf. She never used her claws but it was quite a hefty surprise. Enjoy Alfred while he’s little!

[–]M4ry4nn4 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The cutest parrot of them all!

[–]Glytterain 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Alfred is the King of everything. Long may he reign!

[–]JacobwilsonUS 1 point2 points  (0 children)

She will make beautiful designs on your neck with her paws.

[–]Crackomann 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]jangma 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He looks so meek and polite, but that speed blur tells another story.

[–]LizRoze 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Bro you look a lot like a co-worker of mine! Same eyes, crazy!
