Lisa, I can relate to your cat terrorist. I had one of those food thieves once as well. One night, when I'd had enough, I chased him upstairs and downstairs, and finally cornered him in my study and when I tried to grab him, he bit me. This was rather gruesome, as he was a white cat, and the last I saw of him was bolting down the stairs with my blood dripping from his mouth (I still have the scar on my knuckle).

And all the while, my very brave German Shepherd cowered in her room She is very good at chasing strays when she's outside though

The site might have been down for a while. It worked fine for me. Catproof???? Now I've seen it all!

Lisa,
It must have been down because I got the same results but I was able to get on it now.

BigAl,
I almost wish I still had cats just to find out how well it works.
DJ

"a software utility that helps protect your computer from cats. It quickly detects and blocks cat typing, and also helps train your cat to stay off the computer keyboard. "

"When a cat does activate the software, regular computer function can be reinstated by clicking on a large button or by typing "human." The product won't need an upgrade unless cats learn to type. "

What a hoot! BigAl -- thanks for the link!

Talking Cat Lover

Hi all,
Just had to send a note on this topic. I have 2 cats - Woody and Archie. Woody thinks he is a person - I am convinced! Archie should have been the velveteen rabbit. He sits up on his haunches when he want your attention...looks just like a little bunny.

Woody comes to work with me every day (in my home office). Most of the time he sleeps on my desk (hard to use the darn thing)..and otherwise he sits on the back of my chair while I am on the computer.

Check it out in the attached photo. He is a real character!

Barb, Woody is a handsome fella! I'm sure that he is helping you keep your correct posture by making it impossible for you to lean back in your chair. Such a helpful guy!

My newest cat addition is an orange tabby. He sits in my other computer chair and doesn't help me with my posture -- maybe I'll show him Woody's picture...

A friend sent the following picture entitled "find the hidden bird". I think he looks like Woody!

I have to tell you, it puts a little smile on my face each day. I now use this as my desktop wallpaper.

Also, for the dog/cat lovers, read on....

NOTES FROM A CAT'S DIARY



DAY 752

My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects.

They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while I am forced to eat dry cereal.

The only thing that keeps me going is the hope of escape, and the mild

satisfaction I get from ruining the occasional piece of furniture.

Tomorrow I may eat another houseplant.



DAY 761

Today my attempt to kill my captors by weaving around their feet

While they were walking almost succeeded, must try this at the top of the

stairs. In an attempt to disgust and repulse these vile oppressors,

I once again induced myself to vomit on their favorite chair...must

try this on their bed.



DAY 765

Decapitated a mouse and brought them the headless body, in attempt

To make them aware of what I am capable of, and to try to strike fear

into their hearts. They only cooed and condescended about what a good

Little cat I was...Hmmm. Not working according to plan.



DAY 768

I am finally aware of how sadistic they are. For no good reason I was

chosen for the water torture. This time however it included burning foamy

chemical called "shampoo." What sick minds could invent such a liquid.

My only consolation is the piece of thumb still stuck between my teeth.



DAY 771

There was some sort of gathering of their accomplices. I was placed

in solitary throughout the event. However, I could hear the noise and

smell the foul odor of the glass tubes they call "beer". More importantly

I overheard that my confinement was due to MY power of "allergies."

Must learn what this is and how to use it to my advantage.



DAY 774

I am convinced the other captives are flunkies and maybe snitches.

The dog is routinely released and seems more than happy to return. He is

obviously a half-wit. The bird on the other hand has got to be an informant,

and speaks with them regularly. I am certain he reports my every move.

Due to his current placement in the metal room his safety is assured.

But I can wait, it is only a matter of time...
