Most cats just don't like being snuggled. Some do, some *realllly* do. Most of mine never did, even the two I've got now are kind of "well, you're strong enough to pick me up, I suppose I'll chill out here for a while" (they're 25 and 30 lbs) but they don't care much for when the housemate plops on the floor and gets in their airspace.
And yes, "babycakes" is *completely inappropriate*, and *no* women do NOT "like being called things". Jeez. *ew*.
