View Full Version : that naughty, naughty pudgey cat...

Jun 6, 2004, 07:40 AM
I often come home to find garbled typing in "terminal" (which is open for FaH) and I wonder why... now I have the evidence! I mean, the cat hair on the keyboard was a bit of a giveaway too... ;)

EDIT: it gets quite warm when its doing Folding@Home, so she likes to sit on the keyboard to keep warm in our chilly Melbourne winters. :)

Caught in the Act :p

Have fun getting those hairs out of the keyboard :D

Disaster waiting to happen, I hope he is 'trained' very well.

You better hope he doesn't type in:
sudo rm -R /
and by some miracle get your password right :p.

Don't you not put on a screensaver?

Jun 6, 2004, 04:50 PM
no i have energy saver set so the screen goes to sleep, but the processor keeps working. Putting a screensaver on is a good idea, though!

I have now resorted to leaving a box on the keyboard to stop her doing it. And yes, i never type my password when shes looking! :D

aww. a cute thread. I worry how my cat will take to my eMac when i come home for the summer. No doubt the fan will be clogged with fur

My cat loves to rub up agents my cinema display. It gets surprisingly warm. Once he got his claw stuck in the speaker grill if my powerbook and he dragged it around on my desk. I bet that hurt!! He has also gotten his claws stuck under the keys on the keyboard of my powerbook and ripped a few out.

well he's not a cat but he likes to do the same thing

Indeed. No arguing, no flames, just cute pictures :D

Now does the rabbit like to nibble on power cords? Once had a rabbit that almost ruined my computer. Cute, but always chewing on everything and leaving "presents."

Ya, I not longer have headphones for my ipod becuase of mr. rabbit. :(. But he is very good about not leaveing presents outside of his cage.

Jun 7, 2004, 06:28 AM

Jun 7, 2004, 10:18 AM
Just to let those know that this is in fact a picture found on the internet, It isn't my puppy but I found it funny :D

Jun 7, 2004, 10:44 AM
mine likes to sleep on the back side of it, with her back to the screen, it gets warm. he also likes to rub up against the screen. worries me sometimes, but i think she just lies the heat

Jun 7, 2004, 11:41 PM
Thats so cute! how cool are cats? :D And its a 12" pBook, yah?

they do get so nice and warm... :D

Jun 11, 2004, 08:36 PM
next time the cat gets on the PB, just slam the lid quickly :p , imagin cleaning up the mess :)

Jun 11, 2004, 11:13 PM
my cat likes lay on my keyboard and hit random stuff when im trying to type something important

he ruined my old imacs keyboard

Jun 12, 2004, 01:30 AM
yeah i wonder if my 3 years of Applecare will cover bits of cat bleeding into the keyboard? i think not. :(

Jun 12, 2004, 08:08 AM
One of my cats batted my Apple optical mouse around the desk until it flipped over.. The laser must have dazzled him, because he got all po'd at it and tore the crap out of it. I was really amused until I thought about having to replace it... oh well. I use a trackball now. He and his brother were put up for adoption when we moved to St Louis.. I don't think I remembered to warn the friend who took them in that he might want to tuck his mouse away when he leaves the house.

It never did succesfully catch the CD drawer.

i wonder if it got electricuted after doing that.. that would suck :eek:

Jun 14, 2004, 01:56 PM
WOW! I actually had a warm heart in this thread, to peaceful... I don't like it! :D

Jun 16, 2004, 03:03 PM
Well, if your cat can use Terminal, i've got to get mine started doing my scripts and webpages. :p

Jun 16, 2004, 04:23 PM
And here I thought this had something to do with Garfield...

My dog used to do that. Loved to sit on my keyboard. Especially when I was in the middle of something. Does that count? Sorry, no pics with me.

Sorry, couldn't resist :D
Well, you are running Windows... :p

I remember talking to a few of my UNIX nerd friends back in the day about rolling our foreheads over the keyboard trying to find new UNIX commands

'fdgr' or 'rewt' for example. It actually worked a few times
