Cats do silly things, don’t they?
For instance, they will always get between you and what you are trying to read, whether it is from a book, a magazine, a laptop or a tablet. WHY, you might rightly ask?
Cats are territorial creatures and they like to own things. They especially like to claim as their own things you value. You are giving attention to a book/newspaper/laptop? It is worth their attention…or more precisely, their furry body presence. Proof: have you noticed how your cat will never sleep on ANY book except the one you are reading?
Plus, cats also like you, or what you do for them. Being a couple of centimeters away from the hands that feed/pet/love them just seems very convenient to cats. Who knows if you might scratch their ears, right? You probably do it all the time.
And laptops have a special edge: their warmth. An edge that your belly could also have, if you rather have a cat on your thighs than a cat on your keys.
What should I do?
While this behaviour is cute, when you are trying to get things done, it can be VERY annoying. Hence why you need an extreme measure: a cat trap.
Don’t worry – your cat will be THRILLED.
Just put a cozy box next to your laptop/book/etc. with something comfy that smells like you inside, and there you go, your cat will choose this resting spot over anything…as long as you are near.
