Best way to get a cat to leave a chair without actually tipping said cat off said chair: go into the kitchen, open and close the refrigerator, and wait.

Gee, all I have to do is tap the food bowl with my toe. Your cat makes you actually work. LOL Well, to be honest, the food bowl tapping is to get cats to exit the den for the night. My cats have learned to move when mom's rear is being lowered where they are sitting. I have no qualms about sitting on a cat. They know that is MY chair, and if they want, they can curl up on my lap.

Jack gives me these big, wide-eyed, trusting, "You wouldn't kick a kitty off a chair, would you? Really?" looks. I can't bring myself to do it.

But he's a chair snatcher. Sometimes he'll twine around my ankles, meowing sadly, until I get up and walk over with him to a clear area to lie down and pet him. (He gets skittish when people reach down to him from above -- I think it's possible he had some bad experiences.) He'll lie still for a few minutes, purring contently, then get up, walk back, and hop up on my chair!
