That's why it was a great moment for me when Magnus finally voluntarily lay on my lap! He's taken a liking to my other half and jumps on his lap, but he's been much more careful with me. That's most likely due to the fact that my other half works from home so he spends a lot more time with Magnus, whereas I go to the office five days a week and have been traveling a lot this year. It's so rewarding to see how Magnus has opened up and to finally have him purring on my lap :)
We did coach him to come lay on my legs by having my other half sit next to me, have Magnus on his lap, then he put Magnus on my lap and slowly inched away ;D But it still counts as Magnus stayed on my lap for minutes and seemed to be enjoying it!
