Friday Cat Blogging


Friday Cat Blogging

We aren’t scared of the flash. Two minutes of Cuteoverload and the Daily Kitten, or we won’t leave.

Ringo: “Nice display. It’d be a shame if anything happened to it…”

Friday Ark #125…

We’ll post links to sites that have Friday (plus or minus a few days) photos of their chosen animals (photoshops at our discretion and humans only in supporting roles). Watch the Exception category for rocks, beer, coffee cups, and….? Do link to the…

Yes we’re cute, now feed us or the mouse gets it…

…the boy’s tomcat decided that a good way to cuddle up and get some attention would be to drape himself over and around the keyboard while somebody was on the family computer. It was a warm and fuzzy and oh-so-cute scene until he stepped on some combination of keys and vaporized a post I had worked on for two hours…

I think he did it on purpose…

Watch these two…

Ringo of the bionic tail is a danger to anything that weighs less than five pounds. She really hates the flat screen as she enjoyed laying atop the CRT and flicking her tail across the front like a furry windshield wiper.

Actually, Jams, that’s one of the reasons I don’t own a wireless mouse. This way I can at least follow the wire to retrieve the wee beastie. It’s annoying when I have to call my cellphone to locate it under the dresser.

You might notice how late in the evening my two posts were last night, Jack. That was due to a tuxedoed tom stretched out across a keyboard shelf groaning under his weight. When it’s time for tummy scratches, nothing else matters. I wish I knew what it was that he flops on that causes all screens to scroll to the bottom.

What gets relocated here are slippers! Bebe seems to have periodic flashbacks to mothehood and carries slippers off to a nest, usually behind the washing machine (where no human should ever tread!)

Start-M, perhaps? “Minimize Everything” has become my favorite key combination on the whole keyboard.

Cordless mouse: strongly disrecommended. It will drive you crazy with erratic pointer motion, and it eats batteries unbelievably quickly. After a month with such a torture device, I went out and spent another $30 on a Microsoft Blue mouse… with a cord, of course.

Don’t get me going on socks, Jams. The cats make off with more socks than the dryer. I can understand the slippers as being in the same vein.

There’s too much of him to see what it is, Steve. I stay with IBM keyboards and Logitech mice because I’m used to the feel of both. Wireless mice not only eat batteries but they require a clear line of sight to the receiver, which doesn’t include cats.

I wonder how often they get on there and go to Kitties XX Kitties? I found that address in my web browser and asked the cats what was going on. They refused to answer me. Your cats look very computer savvy to me. How sweet they are!
