Aby-a-Day – October 26: Cats use laptops too, they just type with their butts

As I’ve mentioned before, Angel really loves sitting on my laptop.

If I don’t remember to close it, Angel will sit on it. She’s messed up a lot of my settings (once she changed accessibility preferences and I had enormous text that kept speaking to me – it took me two days to figure out how to turn that off), and she’s even managed to reorganise my desktop icons.

And I know she’s not the only one; there’s an entire website devoted to cats on laptops.

While I wish Angel wouldn’t sit on my laptop when it’s open, I know it’s my own damn fault for forgetting to close it. And at least she doesn’t barf on it, the way my Siamese Harri used to do. So it could be worse.

Still…bathing on my open laptop seems a bit much.

I fell asleep on the sofa and forgot to close the laptop…and woke up to Angel taking a full-on bath all over my keyboard.

She was really going at it, too.

This was a serious bath…

…she was even doing the biting thing with what’s left of her little front teeth.

There wasn’t much I could do about it…so I did what any cat owner would do. I grabbed my camera and documented the scene thoroughly.

She was also completely unrepentant.

I swear she’s actually smiling in this photo.

“What?”

“Oh, well, back to it, then…”
