    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.

    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.
