    And we wouldn't want it any other way! :)

    She managed to magnify my screen about 1000 times or something..... You could see the text from Mars! :scared:

    It might be a tabby thing, I spend every evening fighting Dizzy for room on my keyboard, she likes to rest her chin on the Tab, Caps Lock, Shift, and Ctrl keys so Ive learnt to just avoid the left hand side when shes around. can you not just learn to only look at the outer part of your screen and only use certain keys? Its a bit rude to move her now shes all comfy :D

    Aw, your Dizzy is adorable! :D

    Move her? How could I do such a thing!
    She is sitting right on the spacebar and is giving me the "get your hands off my bum" look every time I try to press it :nono:

    As for that email I was sending.... Ha! They'll have fun making sense of that one! :laugh:

    My 3 year old brother manages to downloaded iPhone and iPad apps without me knowing - only for me to find the receipts on my bank statement!

    And Lexie is an expert and magnifying the laptop screen, stepping on the on and off button and posing in the webcam when I turn it on! :lol:

    Gwennie used to change things all the time on my laptop. I had to call Dell twice because she had turned the stuff on the screen by 90 degrees so everything was sideways. And she would turn off the wireless capabilities, and turn on some voice activated features I didn't even know I had.

    Here she is the day we brought her home from the shelter. As you can see, at the tender age of 8 weeks, she already had her sights set on mastering the laptop:

    I love the photo of your cat on the keyboard with a photo of a cat on a keyboard on the screen. :D

    Mine both like to lie on my Macbook and since I'm still getting used to it after using Windows all my life, Poppy is inputting symbols I've never seen before, as well as opening menus and doing other weird stuff.

    Oh and they like to do it as I'm watching videos also, so the video rewinds/stops/etc. :D

    My kitten is tabby and she lays on my laptop. I actually think she is jealous of it as everytime I sit down and put it on my lap, no matter what she is doing she has to come and sit there too.

    It made the customer service reps at Dell laugh a lot too :D. They found it most amusing that a little kitten had wreaked such havoc and one of them told me how clever she was, which was nice, but I couldn't help but think he was suggesting she was far more clever than I since she did that and I didn't have a clue how to undo it :skep:

    Well this is off topic, but the parrot is the most awesome little guy (we think he's a guy, or at least we call him that. Without a DNA test, who knows?). We consider him a room mate rather than a pet, he's so interactive. He comments on things, laughs during conversations, he's really fun. He keeps the cats in line--they are all very respectful of him although fascinated by his toys--and he mocks the dogs although I think he finds them entertaining. He beeps like a big truck a couple of times a day because they never figure out it's him and come running to the window at full tilt to see what truck is outside the house. He barks, whines, howls, meows, rings like the phone, sings, whistles, etc. I counted his vocab about 5 or 6 years ago and it was over 250 words and sounds. I could tell many stories about how he seems to know when to say something embarrassing or scarily appropriate, but then we'll really be off topic :cool:

    What is it with cats and keyboards..!?

    Declan loves to sit on my lap when i'm trying to use the computer and constantly plays with the keyboard. If i push it away from him he stretches his paw out and drags it back so he can carry on messing with the keys...

    Here he is about to resize the screen yet again...
