Every time I get on the computer I’m not alone. One of the two cats we own is always ready to keep me company.
You have probably seen how different types of cars and trucks have hood ornaments. Well, once the computer is turned on I’ve got a computer ornament. She sometimes seems to anticipate my use of it and will get on top at the back and stare at me until she’s noticed. It’s as if she is trying to call me over. Once the computer is activated, she settles down and peeks over the top at me. At first it was starting to look up and see two eyes and ears looking back. Now, I’m used to it. No, I don’t have a laptop type of computer.
When I shut down, she will stand up and try to see inside to find out what the clicks and motor noises are about. She has even been known to swat and bat at my fingers once she realizes her throne is being turned off. Talk about a bossy feline. She might be comfortable but my back needs a rest. Sometimes I’ll just have it on until it goes to standby and the screen goes blank. You know what I mean. When that happens she gets down off of the back and of the computer and goes and starts standing on the keyboard. I’ve seen her little tap dance. She will do that until she finds the one spot that will make the computer beep. Then she sits right there in that spot. Makes me wonder who it is that determines when I use the computer anyway. I guess that Internet Kitty sometimes does. MEOW!
Just so you can see what both my kitties look like, here they are in all their glory!
