Absolutely made my morning. Brilliant, and congrats on FP!
Wonderful image. I sure miss having a feline companion around..
How is Otis?
Otis is very excited for this opportunity to expand her fan base.
Love it. Despite all their quirks, we just can’t help but adore them.
My cat used to lay on my textbooks when I was in school. Always did things like that…you my be on to something here.
My cats do the same thing. They lay on my textbooks when I’m trying to study. Today, my cat decided to lay on the newspaper while I was apartment hunting.
Yes, this picture is the story of my life as a cat owner
What a nice Cat …
So cute! When I was in high school my cat used to sit on my homework.
How funny . . .I just wrote a blog this morning about MY cat . . .they are crazy!!!!
Soooo true. Another case in point, when they crawl into your lap while you’re trying to work and demand you to pet them.
Like the photo!
That is adorable (and funny)!! I love cats. Mine would “chase” the cursor on my computer screen, making it hard to see anything through her. Sometimes they really don’t want you to succeed; they’re selfish!
Well, someone had to say it.
This made me giggle.
Yes cats are evil, but so delightfully so. My 13 year old black cat- Miss Isabel- is still five pounds of chaos. Her favorite thing is to keep me awake at night by licking my neck and chewing on my ears.
Aww! How cute! That cat looks just like mine!
It makes them all the more endearing I believe. Nothing like the feeling you get when your cat wants your undivided attention, or just to be on/near you.
Never mind that it’s on their terms. The purring and soft, warm fur along with the nuzzles is worth it.
Then there’s the fur they leave behind…
That’s to keep your mind lingering on sweet memories of them, even when they’re busy without you, doing their lives. Want all of your attention when they’re around you and when they’re not.
Nice snap! Sociopaths or not, they are so cute.
I am glad to finally see this acknowledged. I have always believed that if a cat was big enough, it would try to eat you.
Yes they all are.
I’ve suspected them for years & everyone said I was crazy. FINALLY proof!!! :-p
Maybe they just don’t want you using a macbook Thanks for sharing the cute pic
I would love to have a cat, but I’m allergic. Thanks for sharing this. Connie
That definitely put a smile on my face – love the title and caption that go with the picture! Congrats on freshly pressed!
Agreed…Me, me, me and more me. Naturally that is how it is suppose to be.
Maybe he/she is telling you to take a break.
Our cat likes to grab my ankle when walking past her to make me trip, gets in front of me when I’m trying to hurry to the bathroom, and just gets in the way! She’ll wait until I working on something and then jumps up and lays on my chest – then goes after my fingers while I’m trying to type; I’ll be reading from my iPod and she tries to get it out of my hand so I can scratch her head. She’s a pain in my butt – but I love her!
“She’s a pain in my butt – but I love her!…” And she knows that!
Ha. That cat is not evil! An attention hog, maybe, though…
I am not a cat person, but this picture made my heart go “squeeee!”
Great photo! I used to have two kittens that insisted on draping themselves over my computer monitor (a few years back when monitors had big back ends). When they got too big to both fit it was always interesting to see who would “win”.
So…so true! Cute pic.
At least your cat just sleeps on your laptop. Mr. Coco, my furry third roommate, walks on the keyboard and tries to bit the edges of the screen.
My cat does that all the time! I’d get mad… but it’s so damn cute
I used to have a cat that would sit on my chest in the morning and bite my nose until I woke up and fed him. Man, I loved that cat.
I miss my golden retriever the way you miss your cat. And when Otis (above) is gone, I will miss her madly.
Awww…love cats…even if they are a bit neurotic…
Why do cats do that? And when you read a book, they always manage to climb up between you and the book and sit on it. Why, I ask you…why??
Cute post and congrats on being Freshly Pressed!
They do it because they CAN!!
Considering I am writing my blog today with this EXACT situation going on RIGHT NOW I could not have laughed harder or smiled bigger when I saw this on Freshly Pressed today!
This explains everything about my cats!!! Thanks for a great post.
Haha, love it! My cat does the exact same thing (when my desk is clear enough, that is).
The most adorable road block there is. My cat used to tear off lizards limbs, leave it somewhere (but wouldn’t kill it) and then before its limbs would grow back or were kinda coming in it would tear them off again. No joke. The same cat knew how to open doors and turn on the shower.
so true! but they’re so adorable…
“What on that stupid computer could possibly demand more of your time than me?” – Cat
I love cats and have done a couple of posts on my own felines.
Yes, they keep you up all night chasing imaginary things, then sleep all day! Nice. What a life! Congrats on making Freshly Pressed.
I like the photo .
I have 3 cats. Each of them likes to lay between me and my monitor and cover the monitor, to walk on the keyboard or at least to lie down on the desk or in my lap. I think they are jealous of computer because they are not in the spotlight .
I love them very much. They are wonderful creatures :OK: .
I love cats, but I don’t owe any Cats have attitude.
I had a cat that would demand I stopped reading in bed and turn out the light so she could go to sleep!
What a cutie
Love it! My cat used to always let me know I’d been online too long: he’d jump up and sit on the keyboard, blocking the screen!
cat tails (!) and more at
Cute photo. Our cat is always laying across the kids’ homework papers.
I am cracking up laughing and slapping the side of the bed! I saw the headline Cats are Sociopaths, and had to click to read! “They don’t want you to succeed!” … Funny!
I love cats and have encountered many a “paw upon hand” episodes while typing homework assignments or anything else important! Thanks for this!!!
That’s why I have a dog.
So true. They grab your attention when you least expect it. Or least want it!
Absolutely love this! When they want your attention you have no choice, but when you want theirs it’s always on their terms. Still in love though
When my cat plops on my desk to obscure my work, I move him across the room to a pile of “important papers” (or so I tell him). It seems to work.
as a therapist and a cat owner, i totally agree. great post.
I think the cat is trying to tell you to stop working and enjoy life and the ultimate snooze in the sun:) Congrats on being FP!
My cat is a part of my family. I talk to her all the time. I always label this type of behavior as “attention seeking.”
My cat looks exactly like yours! White with orange ears and a matching tail
Congrats on being freshly pressed!
Lucy ( aka Lucifer the cat) agrees with this move.
I was always a dog person – never had a cat – until now. Recently I moved to live on a farm and a cat was imperative to control the shrew/mouse life that seemed to move in with us.
Our neighbours had a litter of kittens. The only one left that no-one wanted we said we’d have. Have no idea why he was the only one left – he was the liveliest of the lot!
Anyway- we named him *Aris* (short for Aristotle) and he’s taken over my life. What a personality I thought only reserved for dogs. I am completely converted.
Love your post.
Lots of respect, from me & Aris*
Aris sounds like quite a character! Great name, too.
That picture’s pretty benign, but the title reminds me of my piano lessons in highschool. My old piano teacher had a cat that used to sneak up on me while I was playing at her house and use my legs as a scratching post.
Didn’t feel so good with shorts on – I had to start wearing jeans to avoid permanent scarring.
Cute! Reminds me of my kitty, Ocean. He lays on top of my keyboard and won’t move unless I move him myself! Very cute post!
Haha. I work from home and my cat does this all day long and you feel bad kicking them off your desk, cause they just look so darn cute.
[...] This is cute!! My phat cat Sookie does this kind of stuff. If I am on the phone she will start pawing at my phone and trying to chew on the sides of it until I aggravated enough to love her. >^.^< [...]
It’s all too easy to blame the cat…

I hope you don’t mind, but I won’t tell June Buggie about this. Trust me, it’s better this way.

Great! Our cat was a bit similar. My Mum and Dad had a camping van and used to go off for a week at a time and just leave the neighbour feeding the cat. She hated it and used to try to physically restrain my mother from leaving. It was funny how she used to do it as she’d wait until my mother had a huge armful of stuff to take out to the van and couldn’t see her. Then she’d leap out, sink both sets of claws into her ankles and bite her leg. My mother used to scream and throw everything in the air – much to the amusement of the neighbours. Better than TV!
Cats are great
Cats are great – love coming home to the girls! I often work from home. My one cat gets jealous of the computer. While she has never slept on my desk, she used to sit on the keyboard! Glad she never figured out how to send!
awwww…my son loves this cat.
Could you try the left hand?
…may end up with really wild writing from the closeted inner child. In the meantime, enjoy your snuggle bunny. Makes me want to nap….
Haha! Great idea.
They sit on your keyboard because your computer is warm! They’re no dummies. – rita
Too funny…we have a picture of our dog doing that. They must have some instinct that the precious time we’re spending on our laptops should be petting time for them. I think it’s meant to make us feel guilty. Congrats on being FP’d!
I love this picture and all the comments that go with it!! No surprises that most of the videos on the Internet are cat ones I had to leave my cats for a week recently and was enjoying how seemingly eager to please they were when I got back. Now, however, we’re back on their terms…
but they are cute, so they get away with it
Aw! Who needs to type any papers, emails or whatnot when you have a furry paw resting on you? Love those furry sociopaths.
Congratulation on being Freshly Pressed. I am so glad to meet with you. This is amazing and so lovely moment. I love cats so much. I am impressed. Thank you, with my love, nia
The fact that you were even able to take this picture is just a testement to your photog skills.
Though not my spelling skills… apparently.
Hmmm… I wonder if the cat that adopted us and is begging to come into our house would do that. (This cat purrs every single time I carry it through the door. Every. Single. Time)
My cat purposely blocks my laptop’s cooling fan. I think she’s sabotaging the computer so I can’t write and will then have more time to feed her. Crafty little thing, she is.
So cute! My cat (orange tabby) loves to sit on my keyboard while I’m writing, especially the buttons that make all the beeping noises when they’ve been pressed for too long. I think, internally, cats feel that their masters should pay attention to them, not do lesser things like eat, breathe, post blogs… Thanks for making me grin!
I’ve been working from home (or trying to at least) all week. I’ve had a cat by my side, in my lap, wrapped around my ankles, or draped across my arm for days on end! Mine must be super sociopaths!
I think you could add narcissistic to the list. This made me smile! Congrats on Freshly Pressed.
Such a sweet photo!
Thank you for your reminding me of how cute and evil cats can be. I have a trick that I use to get my cat to sleep on his on for a few hours. I snuggle up with Moe for a few minutes and when he’s sleepy enough I’ll put him on the sofa with a blanket over the top. He loves to snuggle under the blanket and once he’s a sleep in the afternoon nearly nothing can wake him.
Good luck on your writing.
Oh how hilarious! And oh so true. Great photo. Your cat is so cute, even with that wicked little grin.
Congrats on the fp, you deserved it.
Hahaha. I love this! It’s so true. Sometimes I can’t decide if my cats really love me, or are just watching and waiting for a moment I mess up so they can mock me, My oldest cat now has a thing where he’ll come up when I’m not paying attention and meow, loudly, into my ear to scare the bejesus out of me. He’s lucky I love him. Hah.
My cats were always finding ways to get between me and work. I miss them now. Great photo!
Awesome post! Thank you!
amazing… youre lucky to have a cat like that. so sweet!
I love this! My cat is constantly walking across my laptop and messing up whatever I am working on. This is adorable!
Cool cat, great photos. I have two cats–like bookends.
Now i understand why I feel so much like painting cats… Empathy! Nice picture!
Very cute picture. Cats get the greatest laughs out of me. I have never owned one but I am sure their shenanigans would make it well worth it!
Our cat has an amazing personality too. She refuses to drink her water until she “paws” a piece or two of dry food into it, I’m assuming to give it flavor? She tries to hop in the shower with me and has even gotten wet, but comes back for more. I think she thinks she’s a dog. GASP. : )
Haha this is so cute! One of my cats glares when I’m on the laptop as it’s taking up her space
Love this! I have a similar pic with my cat lying on top of my hand which is on the mouse. She will not let me use a mouse with my laptop – ever.
this is more than adorable!
siiii que gua chitos hacen lo que quieren??
poetas de ojos amarillos y suaves
so cute! i remember our cat even sleeps on top of my tummy or makes a pillow out of my foot sometimes.
Great picture! Your cat looks just like mine. And I Facebooked it.
It’s the way of life.
Thank you for the chuckle.
Haha, very funny .
OMG! my cat does exactly the same, plus he always wakes me up at 4 in the morning, so I feel you my friend
Awww so cute!!! Love it!
That IS awesome!
My cat sits on my recipes while I’m cooking…she never offers to do the dishes!

One of my friends has a cat who frequently sprawls over her keyboard, too! Sounds like you’re potential computer-cat friends!
Sunshine, a warm laptop and a companion! How could she resist?
All cats are lonely and pride
Accurate. I absolutely love this. <3
And this is why I have a dog! Great pic.
Puds can be very naughty when they think they are being ignored by anything as nasty as work. But to lay down on the job like that! Naughty puddy tat.
Mine walks on my keyboard when I am trying to type if she wants attention, she is 18 going on 2! She still jumps and chases birds, crazy adorable cat!
This is classic! And so very true.
I saw a cat with two faces that was quite old. I was shocked.
My cat does that all the time! But usually he lays across the whole keyboard so I can’t do anything but pet him! lol
Haha love this. Cute photo!
that’s a real case? the pic? ohhhh, then it’s FUN!
Shhh… don’t let them know that we’re onto them!
hahah too funny
I love this. I had one cat who would try to rip up my homework when he was mad at me. Cats are hilarious!
I couldn’t agree more
Wow i could not stop laughing!
Wondering what was I thinking when I clicked on “notify me of follow up comments via email” when i left a comment on this post?! It’s on freshly pressed after all!
LOL! this is too cute!
This could not be more true.
Wow, nice photo with lovely cat
Nice photo! It reminded me of the cat at my mother-in-law’s house. I was working on my laptop when she lied down on top of my keyboard and I couldn’t do anything about it -_-
My cat keeps pawing my MacBook whenever I try to type. I think she wants to work on something for cats too.
awww.. so cute..
adorable post, adorable cat..
I am convinced that my cat is a ninja who is plotting world domination! Great Post!
Yup. I’ve got one of these at home as well
So adorable! My boyfriends cat used to purposely sit on top of his keyboard, just to be petted!
Very, very sweet post. I totally love the picture
i guess another comment to this picture will not hurt. i am a cat lover. i have two senior cats elvis and rosie years 12 and 14 and as sassy, dedicated and alert as you can imagine. my cat rosie follows me even to the bathroom-like achild your privacy goes out the window and please don’t forget their fancy feast or try is harrassment a la king. i met this classic book place in trenton the day before and over there by warren st.. i like it and thought i get their website to check it out further. thanks
Yes, I’ll remember that every time I have to destroy a feral cat. Big problem here.
This is why I love ( especially my) cats- they always know, that there are better things in live than work;O) And it is a nice excuse for a furry break, isn’t it?
Great Pic! My cat, as well as parking on the newspaper I’m reading, will also park her butt on the my yoga mat…while I’m doing yoga! Usually I’m in down-dog posture, which may or may not be a hint
I have a kitten that stands on the mouse and clicks it, resulting in multiple losses of documents, unwanted sends etc.
My cat Rocky lays rights across my textbook when I’m trying to read it. I guess she’s not into Yates?
Aaah, I love the things cats do. My two cats used to lay down on anything I did and left for a moment. I’d come back and they’d be fast asleep.
Interesting… I’ll to check with some other cat lovers as well !

Ahh I love cats!! I have a female kitten. Love cats!! Hugs and kisses for your lovely cat. Congrats for being Freshly Pressed!!
I have to agree. In college, my cat slept on top of my piles of paperwork when I was trying to study for midterms and finals – only the single most important tests of each semester.
Their sociopathic tendencies are well-disguised by their cuteness, which they understand and use to their advantage.
Agreed. I’m currently in a territory battle over my own bed.
They are…but who isn´t?
Just kidding…but the picture is so cute!!!!
Visit me anytime at:
Fab Photo, I love it.
I love my 6 kitties and they make me soooooo Happy! I love this picture. Thanks for sharing it with us
Great photo! I’m honestly more of a dog person, but I do love my cats too. All pets: dogs, cats, rodents, horses and antelope (Yes, that is what I am entertained by recently.) are a source of comic relief to the too serious human intellect. Scroll through my blog for proof!
LOL! So true
Our cat used to do this. It was so annoying yet cute.
Absolutely fantastic. My cat is no different. Sure, they seem cute and cuddly. But if I dropped dead in my home, that jerk would probably eat my face.
I think I’ve used the exact same phrase to describe my cat’s…tendencies.
Because of you I have a furry confident.
I believe in love at first purr.
My house is a home.
It takes me twice as long to read the newspaper.
Beacause of you, cat,
ordinary things are amusing.
Our cats should be friends.
My cats harrass me when I’m on the computer. It’s like they don’t want me to work on it. They walk between me and the screen, I have to use one hand to keep them from walking on the keyboard, and it’s just impossible to work on the computer unless I put them out of the room and shut the door. They don’t do this with anything else I do. Weird.
so cute…do you know the new simons cat cartoon “cat & mouse” on you tube – ist very similar…;-)… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BWIPZvwcnX8&feature=channel_video_title
How you snapped that pic amazes me! Left handed, or do you have a second right hand? Great shot
The iPhone makes it possible! I’ve even taken photos with the left while holding a shotgun mic with the right. Serious multitasking action.
I wouldn’t want to succeed if I was the hoomin in that picture if it means that I get snuggled up by a kitteh <3
Aww……your cat’s adorable! :3
I thought I was the only one with a crazy cat like that…..xD
Oh my goodness I have a picture very similar to that except it’s my calico on my textbook. XDDDDDD
My cat always sits on my lap when I try to put on my shoes to leave. After being placed on the floor she starts the “Where’s the lazer Pointer?” game. Then when I get my keys and reach the door she is sulking alone in the window and won’t even look my way as I exit. Now I feel awful!
Mine does the same thing. Won’t let me type on the computer, and won’t let me sleep.
You’re typing is disrupting his mini-coma.
my cat, for the most part, takes naps while i work. usually he’s on my mini-fridge in my office just wasting away the day. if i’m on he phone and pacing about, then he’ll get active and start attacking my legs and other things. if only my clients knew that while i’m talking to them, i have a cat clawing at my feet… priceless.
Look at its facial expressions! What a lovely cat !
I wish I still had a cat! This is adorable!!
Well…. yes. And yet they would always like to win
my cat sleeps like yours
Oh, that is so cute!
I don’t have a cat, but I love it!
That’s why I don’t have one
No, wait, I want one!!! ó_ó
Totally with you on this one!
Agreed! I have many sociopaths about my home and I do believe they have the same agenda as yours
bahahaha. Thank you for this! My cat is the stereotypical, “Hey, let me totally distract you and try to trip you up so you can fall flat on your face and get nothing done for the rest of the day!” Congrats on FP!
I love, love, love this! Completely agreed. Cats are such attention whores. My kitten (who seems to be growing larger by the day) can never let me give my attention to anything other than him. My Kindle has teethmarks on it.
I just started my blog yesterday, and actually included a picture of my kitten in my first post! They’re so fun to photograph. Yours is a great shot.
Love your entry! Mine actually ate both mice used to navigate my computer disabling my business for weeks!
So true. My cat will crawl onto my lap, and start snuggling the closest hand, which usually ends up being the one for the mouse. So then I end up stopping to pet him hoping that my affection will turn him away eventually, but I’m proved wrong every time. The little guy could sit there and enjoy rubs, scratching, kneading, and more rubbing for hours and hours.
Hah! I can totally relate to this! My cat does the exact same thing.
That kinda looks like my cat!
She’s known for spreading herself across my keyboard and making the speakers go crazy while I run for a cup of coffee…
It is SO true! When I used to have study session with a friend, the cat was always stepping on our books, or trying to take a nap on them. It followed all around the house, the yard, the porch, every place we went to run away and to have a place to study peacefully. It was there.
Haha. Cats are awesome.
