I want a shoulder cat.

Shoulder cats are best cats.

I have a shoulder cat. She will stand on my shoulder and ride around as I walk all over the house and even parts of outdoors. It's adorable. Great balance, too!

(It's Sioux Falls, South Dakota, not Virgil, Texas, but there's a bit of a True Stories vibe anyhow.)

My little Loki was a sweet shoulder-cruiser. She’s been gone twenty years now, but just seeing a cat on someone’s shoulders brings back all kinds of warm-and-fuzzies.

That's more wholesome than Rachel Bloom's A Fuckton of Cats.

See also Furkids. I'm not complaining, I support these cat dealerships (just don't mess with the undercoating, the cats aren't fond of that).

I have a shoulder cat. He weighs 17 pounds, but that has not deterred him.

I thought I adopted a sporty cat with racing stripes but those stripes were after market, I got a big old luxury cat built for comfort.

I have a scratch and dent model (raggedy ears, no teeth, formerly-diabetic).

"Only two left!" was the best part. All of this is amazing though.

I have a quasi-shoulder cat. She only wants to snuggle by sitting over my left shoulder. Not the right! Never the right! Only the left shoulder. She is only happy if I have to support her rump and basically give her undivided attention to keep her immobile while she drapes over my shoulder and occasionally headbutts me or tries to groom my neck.

We fostered one kitten that was a natural shoulder cat. Beautiful grey and white kitty that I was very, very sad when she got adopted. I mean, happy that she found a person, but she was special and I miss her the most of all the kitties we've fostered.

All of these "commercials" are wonderful. May all of these cats and other animals find loving homes forever and ever, amen.

One of ours when I was growing up was a selective shoulder cat. Anytime I picked her up, it was straight onto my shoulder, but this only happened to me. I never figured out why I was honoured in this way - I was neither the tallest nor the smallest in the house, and I'm not exactly broad shouldered so it can't have been very comfortable.

"You can fit so many cats in this baby..."

One of my old cats liked to be a shoulder cat, but would face backwards, which led to discussion of the "shoulder-launched cat-ass" as a weapon.

As they say on SNL's Whiskers R We, "Bring a bag, we'll put a cat in it."
