Calling Miss Manners

Does the napkin in your lap go underneath or on top of the cat?

Giggle - on top of. You wouldn't want Fluffy's fur to get full of crumbs, now, would you?

On top for the salad, off for the fish & meat. Only on for desert if it's not cream oriented.

After all, sharing is smiled upon.

Also, ROFLMAO.

This is Fred's opinion, I think. The lap is the best location for food interception.

Underneath! That way, it can catch all the crumbs the cat misses!

In a Miss Manners-type situation, the issue should not arise. At a dinner of *any* level of formality, the cat will have its own place setting. (At the head of the table, of course.)

True, true. But then we're into the avalanche problem--if Fred gets her own place-setting, Fish and Agatha will have to have places, too. The table will be getting very full...

And that is the cats' problem HOW, exactly? That's why they retain we hairless apes as staff, to deal with little things like that.

Note to housekeeping: purchase new dining table before next formal dinner.

It goes under, to give some protection from claws.
