Their clingy feline demanded constant attention.

Ziggy began climbing onto Rebbeca's laptop and desk to try and get her attention.

Preventing her from being able to get any work done.

The couple had to think fast.

And it didn't take long for them to come up with a nifty solution for Ziggy.

Alex came up with the genius idea to create a "fake lap" for Ziggy to sit on when she can't settle on her owners.

Alex took a pair of trousers and stuffed them so they looked like human legs, and then added shoes and a pillow to create a stomach.

But the real magic touch is down to a heating pad, which he placed in the lap of the trousers.

"[Alex] thought that creating a decoy would be funny, but I don’t think he expected it to actually work. Harley [Ziggy’s sister] was totally uninterested, but Ziggy loved it," Rebbeca explained. "She needs warmth and to feel protected, we think." What an adorable kitty! Want more heartwarming animal content? Keep scrolling to check out a list of the most unusual animal friendships.
