A lap full of kitties is very good therapy after a hard day. As they curl up into each other, they become a living blanket to keep you warm. They also keep you still, allowing you to rejuvenate, mentally and physically for a couple dozen minutes. Soft fur within arm's reach provides a gentle distraction if you simply must do something. My furballs seem to know when I need this kind of therapy. They don't often settle in together on my lap although they readily share an empty chair or basket, even one that's really too small for the both.
