    So my cat ripped off half the keys on my keyboard and some of them I could get back on but 4 of them I am not able to fix myself and I'm wondering if I take it to Apple if they can just replace the keys (obviously they are still working they just need the top back on) and how much it will roughly cost...

    It depends if the keys just need to be popped back in to place or if the mounting hinges were damaged in the 'cat attack.'

    If the mounting hinges were damaged on the keyboard-side of things, they may need to replace the entire keyboard (cost will vary with version of MB we're dealing with). If it's just a matter of manipulating the hinges into the right position to get the key to pop back on, it should be quite cheap if not free if the 'genius' is in a good mood.

    I was only able to pop about 4 of them back on, the other ones haves broken hinges or the key was chewed up so it was warped
