A Cat Question -
Anyone else have a cat that sits in front of your monitor trying to "catch' the cursor, pawing the screen while you type?? Too funny.

4. He's about 5 months old
and immediately after I sit down at the PC, he's right there. Goes nuts for a good 15 minutes.

3. I downloaded the aquarium screensaver
Just for the cats. They usually sleep between me and the keyboard (it's a wonder I get anything done!) and one of them loves to watch the cursor.

5. A couple of mine are very interested in a couple of our
smilies. They like :bounce: the most, but seem interested in others as well.

7. The saddest day in my cat's life
Was the day I replaced my old monitor with a flat-screen one. He can no longer play his former game of sitting on top of the monitor and slapping at the cursor. Now he has to sit on the desk, which isn't anywhere near as much fun.

8. Sort of
Some of my cats (I have 4) watch TV. And at least one likes to sit in my lap while I play Civilization and watch the little people and units move around the map.

9. My Kayzer kitty does that... He's been known to attack the TV
when interseting things are flitting about.

10. Why do cats do that and dogs don't?
Perhaps a naive question, but I'm not really a cat person. My dog could care less. I am a bit amazed my cat shows so much interest in movement and color. Do they just see better?

15. I have a few cats
somewhere in the neighborhood of 16, and some like to watch the computer, some the tv, and others like to play with my dog's tail (he's a black lab) and others like to splash the water around in the bowl before drinking it. Its never a dull moment in this house :)
