My cat Maxine lays on top of my monitor for hours, it's only when she rolls over and falls off that I remember she's there. When she does fall off it's usually my fault, I must have moved the monitor or something. Then it's trouble, she usually won't leave me alone and just has to sit on the keyboard untill I've apologized enough to satisfy her. She also hates me reading the newspaper she always comes and sits right in the middle of it swishing her tail to cover more just incase I was reading somewhere she missed with her body. Cats are wonderful creatures and certainly have a mind of their own, you can call a dog an it will come( most of the time) but call a cat and you get that icy cold look saying "so what do you want? do you think I'm a dog or something?" I just love cats.

What a great thread.

All my cats are/were readers. I never could read a paper or book or write at my desk without attacting the cats who wanted to take over what I was doing. They also like/liked to write. Every pen became their toy.

One of my current cats, Kitty Cat, also likes to use the computer. She walks on the keyboard and grabs my Wacom pen.

It's so nice to read about all of your pets. All of the cats I've owned are adoptees and are problem cats. I like to take the ones, who for various reasons, are considered unadoptable. So my cats always have had emotional or physical problems. But each of them, in their own ways, have given us joy, along with their problems, and have been loving, wonderful pets.

Thanks, DJ, for starting this thread and remember -------------------------------

"I'm only a cat and I stay in my place...

When I went to PetsMart this week, I found that Morris the (TV commercial) Cat was scheduled to appear there in an hour for portraits with customers. I ran some errands nearby and returned to the store in time to see his limosine arrive. He stayed inside his chauffeured limo (actually, inside his carrier which was inside his limo) while his helpers set up his portrait background and his chair. When the little girl in front of me sat for her picture with Morris, he raised his paw and waved (at the feather used to get his attention) - which was great timing to give the girl a special portrait.

Yes, I sat for a picture also - after all, I sat for a portrait with Little Nipper last year, so I had to even things out.

I thought Morris died a year or so ago. Guess not, unless they are doing a Lassie thing with him. Bet that was pretty neat anyway.

Well, they do have nine lives (or 9 lives, in Morris' case)

"9 Lives" Good one, Doug!

The current Morris is Morris IV, according to his hired help.

Thought that this would a good time to pass along a cute cat cartoon that I had lying around.It seems to sum up the feline temperment. Incidentally, I was bemused to read that there are readers of the " Cat Who" series out there besides me .I really enjoyed the series and looked forward to the new one coming out each year but until now never knew anyone who read them .
