Oliver Loves the Computer

Is it the warmth? An electromagnetic field? Or just a devilish desire to interrupt and close all open windows?  Any which way you cut it, having a curious kitty with a ravenous appetite for walking, sitting and kneading computers is simultaneously frustrating and endearing.  

This little executive has a penchant for sending documents to the printer. He figures out shortcuts I didn't realize were even an option (like changing your monitor to portrait for instance).   
We say, "SKAT!" and he says, "That starts with an S right? I'll have that typed up right away!"
We say, "For the love of everything good and just in the world, please!" and he says, "I'll check that connection for you!"
And just when you think he's finally taken the hint, you realized he's moved on to your scone.
Salmon and cinnamon chip - it's the hippest combo in kittyville.

Are your pets helpful executives?


  1. Sooooooo cute!! hahaha pets can do the most frustrating things in the world, but aren't they just too adorable to stay mad at??

  2. Adorable!! Our cats just really enjoy sitting where you'd like to sit and not moving. Or let's say we've precariously balanced a pile of papers "just for a minute" -- ZIP! Cat immediately perched on them, then jumping as they fall over. Silly cats :)

  3. freaking adorable! Our kittens love the laptop and all wires as well! If you find a solution, would love to hear it. Right now, we're just using tin foil to cover wires.

  4. So, so cute! My dogs cuddle up to sleep with my laptop sometimes when it's cool in the house!

  5. Oh my gosh! He is SO SO cute! I love his adventures! Have you tried distracting him with a laser pointer?

  6. Thanks y'all - he really loves the attention. I took these pics a few weeks ago and he looks like such a big boy cat now. More current photos are coming through the photo challenge!
