This eveing, I made the mistake of leaving the laptop turned on and unattended. When I returned, Kimba was perched on it listening to Finnish epic metal. She had discovered that it makes a toasty-warm cat bed and squawked angrily when I evicted her. She had managed to
--disconnect the Internet
--turn on an audio CD
--hit the capslock
--send a command to an Excel worksheet
Not bad for someone without opposable thumbs.

Let's hope she didn't email the instructions to my cats before she killed the internet.

Hee! The best part was the soundtrack. I have no idea how she turned the CD on.

She's obviously a highly intelligent cat. You might want to think about buying a really old laptop just for her own use - LOL. I can see it now...

"How many computers are you operating this software on, miss."

"Well, there is mine, and my husband's, and then we have one for the children...oh...and we have one for the cat!"

Stuttering silence follows....

Too bad I took the old laptop to the city recycling center! She does have a heating pad that I need to put out now that the weather has turned cold. This may have been her subtle way of reminding her clueless owner. :)

Somehow I just don't see you as clueless :-)

Thank you! But those kittehs sleep on the warm bed while we go out in the cold to work. Who's the smart one? :D

Oh my goodness, who knows what might have happened if you'd left her any longer! She might have set up a secret website.

I do miss my cat - it is quite strange to be able to put the computer down and not worry about him playing on the internet whilst my back was turned.

The icon shows the evidence!

Aw, such a pretty boy!
I can send you Kimba. I'll pay the postage. :D

I had the laptop in bed the other evening and I must admit it was keeping me toasty - I can see why it appealed to her!

When Second Small Person was a toddler he once managed, by sufficiently determined random pounding of keys, to switch the GUI on our main box into Chinese. Consternation followed as even the Resident Geek couldn't remember enough of the Debian menus to navigate his way blind back to a standard Western layout - restoring default settings took some time...

Hee! But Mom pounds on that black box, so he figured that was what he was supposed to do.

Obviously the Finnish metal was no deterrent to a cat determined to stay put where it was nice and toasty! ;D

PS: Daughter's Christmas list = Sonata Arctica Live and the new Nightwish CD... at least she goes mainly for the melodic metal, as opposed to the Norwegian death metal stuff - that makes my brain hurt! ~_^

I think she was grooving to it. Part of her idiom since she is the "bad" cat of the house.

My Leo was curled against the side of the laptop all afternoon while i was typing a story.At least he did not try it out as your cat did!

See, it really is a heated bed for cats. We just don't recognize it's true purpose. :)

My parents' younger cat has learned to push my dad off the couch. I'm not entirely sure how he manages that, but it takes him about half an hour to occupy it all! :)) Cats...
