When a cat is sitting on one's lap in a matter that results in them having a sort of "lock down". The person is unable to move due to said cat sleeping, keeping them from being able to get up or stretch very far for that one glass of water that is only inches away....
Mom: Hey hon, can you come in here and set the table for dinner?
Daughter: That idea isn't looking too bright considering I'm currently in a meow down.
Mom: Understandable. That cat does have her way with you...
