Do Tell: Are Your Cats Computer Obsessed?

I couldn't stop laughing looking through these cute videos that laurengrand sent to me! It really made me think that maybe kitties are secretly tech-savvy?! There are plenty of suggestions to keep them off the keys or away from the cords, have you ever needed to deter your cats from computer's technology? Hey, maybe they don't call it a mouse for nothing!

My cat will sleep on my laptop, roll around on it and sit on it while I am trying to work on it! I dont know if its cuz she likes the laptop or cuz she wants me to pay attention to her instead of it :)

Hahah, my cat does the same thing if she wants attention and I'm giving attention to the "machine" She'll walk right across the keyboard or flatten my laptop right out and lay on it. Usually then I pay attention to her. she's spoiled like that.

my cat does like the computer but she prefers papers or books (she's a traditional sort :) ) the pigeon, however, is totally obsessed with the computer. she LOVES typing to make "things" happen, like she sometimes holds down the contrast buttons and watches the screen go black or makes the alert sound go off endlessly... and her favourite is traipsing around til the cd drawer opens at her and she acts all surprised and takes off... goofus!

My cat is totally jealous of the computer. Whenever I get on, Elliott jumps up and plants himself in front of the moniter. Once, he must have REALLY wanted attention, because when I told him in my "naughty cat" voice to get down, he just gave me a pointed look and placed his kitty butt sqarely on my mouse. He won that battle; I had to leave the desk so I could wash my mouse!

When Moosie was a kitten, and I had a larger desk (different house) he would always,always lay on my arm with his head on my keyboard while I worked or gamed. He's too big now, and the desk is too small, so he has moved on to laying on the laser printer.. He also had a thing as a kitten, (When I used to play Warcraft) of being fascinated anytime my characters were flying. I have a shot somewhere of him with his paw on the screen trying to touch the toon as it flew and at least 2 of him laying all over the keyboard. As for typing, no, he's a total klutz! Unless you count typing with his head. :D

This kitten is too cute. My Cat will only lay on the keyboard when im doing something important, like writing a story or homework.

my cat used to love sitting infront of the keyboard watching the monitor and chasing the mouse around. He was also really good at sitting ontop of the printer - that really was his fav place

All the time. I have one that is always messing with the keyboard and they both constantly try to push my hand away from the mouse to be petted. I pet them with my left hand and they still keep on till I pet them with my right hand.

My cats like to sit on top of the mouse! And they love blocking the screen and meowing for attention. They don't really care about the keyboard, for some reason.

Maggie lays on top of the monitor & hangs over the screen so she can see what's going on.

Only one of my cats is obsessed with my laptop. He likes to sleep on it while it's open resulting in lots of crazy stuff happening on the screen. My other cat just likes to watch the cursor move around but doesn't really go after it.

Aw, precious! I miss my little kitty Lennox. He was quite intrigued by the computer and would lay on my lap as I typed college papers. Good times.

Callie loves to sit on the laptop keyboard and follow the mouse around. She's pretty good at sending IM's and closing programs too. If I get her off of the keyboard, she'll sit as close as she can to watch what I'm doing.

Back when I had a desktop, my cat would lay down right on the keyboard while I was using it. He messed up a lot of essays, but I love him anyway. <3

My baby loves walking across the keyboard or planting herself in front of the monitor to watch me play my first person shooters. I guess it makes her feel like she's living the dream (or blastin baddies) :P

Rosie sits on top of my computer monitor because she's worked out the air vents on it are warm!

Everytime Simba walks across my laptop keyboard he hits the right combination to hide all of my task bars and address bars. Every time.

Bubba sleeps on top my laptop when its closed. If I leave it open, he will get on the keyboard and clean and then run off like a mad man. And if I am online and he is nearby, he will jump on it and just stand and wait for his 5 minutes of attention before he leaves to sit on the nearby table.
