Carol Samuel’s Toygers think she has the best seat in the house — literally. One day, while her grandson was visiting, several of Samuel’s cats decided to camp out on her lap. “

My grandson went outside for a few minutes and came back in to six Toygers sitting on me,” recalls the breeder from Pennsylvania. “He was just amazed.”
