Friday Cat Blogging

Isn’t it time for dinner?

[Editor: Ringo has decided that the area behind the monitor is is a great place to be annoying.]

I can imagine the scope Ringo has to bother and annoy you from such a vantage point!

Hee hee hee…..that’s great!!

There’s nothing like a paw coming around the edge of the screen when you are editing, Jams. The layout was setup for a CRT, so the LCD leaves a large space behind it.

That’s great for her, Moi, not for me.

Now that’s funny! What an expression she’s giving you! Great pic, Bryan.

Stella’s kitties haven’t yet discovered that space in the couple of months since Stella changed to an LCD display. Or maybe they have, but still prefer their traditional stroll between the display and our eyes. For them, attention, rather than security, is the primary goal. Tabitha can be especially persistent; she will leap up there again and again, yowling loudly every time she is politely removed.

That was Koshka’s thing – getting between me and whatever I was reading – newspaper, book, CRT, &c. – making sure that she was the center of my attention.

Ringo prefers to be comfortable while distracting me.

Heh. Yeah, mine have decided that me hitting those keys is a funny game where my fingers are playing with them, and keep jumping on fingers as said fingers fly around the keyboard. Amazing, how these fur-bearin’ varmints find ways to entertain themselves at our expense. Hmm, who’s in charge anyhow? Oh never mind, I keep forgetting, dogs have owners, cats have staff :-).

Last weekend when I was in Tampa visiting boatboy_srq, his cat Harlequin would sit next to me and bat me on the leg to prompt me to give him a bellyrub. When that failed, he jumped up on the desk and tried to add his comments to my blog posting. He’s an adorable cat, but can give you a glare that would melt platinum.

When she was a true kitten, Property figured out she could make the cursor move by stepping on one section of the keyboard, and I had to shut down and lock her in the bathroom to finish the program I was working on, as putting her on the floor became part of the “game”.

That would be Sox, MB, who prevented me from responding earlier by spending most of the day sprawled across the keyboard shelf for a belly rub.

Awwww! How cute! Ringo found a nice quiet spot. My grey kitty likes to jump up on the bookshelf closest to the computer. She gets there by walking on the printer.

I was running a long print job today and I unfortunately had a lot of help as various cats wandered by to removed pages from the printer, drawn by the sound of it working.

I know they like to lay on top of the system box because it’s warm, but the LCD doesn’t generate much heat. I think she likes to look out the window behind her, and I’m more a distraction than attraction.
