Aby-a-Day – 25 January: Things I can live without…Cat-like typing detected (Thursday Things)

I love living with cats, and I could never imagine myself not having at least one or two around me…but let’s be honest. They are not always the best roommates. They are not always a joy to behold. So, I thought I would start a new feature: Things I can live without.

And this right here is one things I can definitely live without. Cats sitting on my bloody keyboard! Logan, Freddy and Angel are all guilty of this, and they have done things like restart my computer, turn the screen brightness down all the way so I think they’ve shut it down, and worst of all, turn on the sodding Acessibility features like VoiceOver, Descriptions and Captions. I hate this because it always takes me forever to figure out how to turn it off. But it’s not so easy to just say, “well, just close it then, stupid,” because there are times when you don’t want to close the laptop, for example it’s running, downloading, or copying something large. I try putting things on the keyboard, or closing it partway with a stopper (usually my phone or the remote) to keep it from closing all the way. Of course, then they just sit on the thing, or on the half-closed lid…So I guess I’ll just have to live with someone thinking my keyboard is a lovely place for a bath.

Recently, though, they’ve learned a new trick. They are actually typing messages to people. They are now typing things like: ,,LÖ23B 1§ (This was Angel typing in Messenger to Björn).

, which someone sent to my sister (not sure who was doing long division – hell, I’m not even sure how they made a division sign…I’m not sure I know how to make one)!

I hope Apple comes up with a cat-proof MacBookPro soon!
