Both of my cats do this! I used to feel bad for disturbing them, but now I just relocate them to another spot.

Sometimes. I try and relocate them to somewhere else near me so I can still pet them, but they are not directly in front of me. Sort of a compromise with the kitty!

Of course she does, she is a cat!

I saw a card at Borders today, it read “Cats were onced worshipped like the gods, they have never forgotten this.”

Too true.

Mine also does this. I just relocate her to my lap. She also likes to sleep on my desk with the mouse in between her paws and under her chin. She is a silly cat.

I don’t have a cat, but my when my dog wants my attention she’ll run around like mad all over the room, across the keyboard and sometimes she’ll accidently close what I’m doing! Lately, I’ve been giving her bones and toys to distract her while i’m on the computer. I know cats can be very stubborn so I’m not sure if this would work in your situation 🙁

It’s basically impossible for me to pull out a book or my computer without my cats doing this.  I have to lock them in the basement or lock myself in a room they cannot access (otherwise they’ll just sit outside the door, crying and scratching at the door. they’re really emotionally needy).

Oh, duh. My computer said 12 something, not 1 something. Silly me. I guess it’s bed time!

*waves hand* I have three girls and within a space of 15 minutes I have them all over me.

Narriko is the worse and she innocently starts on the back of the chair and then climbs down the arm and flops onto my hands/keyboard/mouse.

(speak of the devil she just jumped up!)

Okay she is gone.  Here is my secret.  keep a noise maker around your desk (doesn’t even have to be that loud, just something they don’t like the sound of) If not, do a treat container, shake/whistle/ drop the thing and they will go running off.

I have hardwood floors behind us, so I take a treat and throw it out onto the floor. They run off and I can type.

Good luck!
