    Ignore Me and I Will Steal Your Chair

    One of my cats has become jealous of my computer time. Smoky has been my velcro kitty since day one. She will steal my chair just to make a point. Unless she is outside, then the wildcat part kicks in.

    He Woos Me

    When I am up on the computer, my roommates cat will jump on my lap. He is a big tabby and loves putting his paw on you to claim you. He puts his paw on the mouse too(the computer mouse). I just wish he would "AR" at my little girl tabby.

    She is 30lbs, and extremely jealous of my computer.  Right now she is laying on me, I'm in bed, she has both paws wrapped around my head and clawing my pillow. No wonder I choke up hair balls.

    Hairy Keyboards, and Chewed Up Headphones

     My cat, chuck (one of 6) is constantly jumping on my desk when I'm typing. He'll do it, and just sit their meowing until I give him attention, then he'll politely jump in my lap. He likes to chew up my headphones too, which gets annoying.

    Dammit!

    The fat little bastard gets between the keyboard and the screen and lies there like he just doesn't care.  He does it all the time.  I think he is totally insensitive!
