Or: My Cat Doesn’t Want You to Read This
*While taking a totally legitimate work break. Smokers have smoke breaks. Bloggers have blog breaks. It’s an addiction, which is a disease, so it’s not my fault and I’m super entitled to it. Shut up.
Guys, this week, I really wanted to share a whole bunch of hilariously awful stories of the tragedies that are my romantic history. I have a lot of them, and they’re great fodder for doodles.
But this week, the Snowpocalypse has come to visit the Queen City.
That means I’m working from home.
With my cat.
Who is very clingy.
And does not share attention well.
I have no idea how she got this way.
No clue at all.
I guess life is full of little mysteries like that.
Ever have a work-related phone call and have the other party ask if you just meowed?
Just me? OK.
such a good thing I don’t work at home 😀
Definitely not just you. And I can’t tell you how much that just made me laugh with sympathy.
Go team cat people 😉
God I love those – remember watching these on the couch at my place?
I love the bloggers are entitled to blog-breaks concept…it should be made a new law!
Make it a new law!
You can do that right?
I also love that your cat has little cat versions of human feet 😀
I can totally do that. Because I’m an Amur’can. And if good ol’ Dictator G-W Bush taught me anything, it’s that that means I can do anything I like. Like make laws, despite being the legal equivalent of a peasant.
Blog Breaks. It’s a universal, world-wide law. Get with the times, other countries.
My cat is really big, and is all about shoving her feet in my face. She deserves cat-people feet 😉 I’m glad you noticed.
woohoo 🙂 blog break law!!
I am on one now!! Or maybe I am sometimes on a work-break from my blogging… hmmm
My cat is really big too 🙂 If he were to be drawn by me he would have cat-people feet too…but not like mine because mine look like wedges. they really do I wrote a blog post about it but I cant find it…
I got sidetracked by feet sorry…
Clearly, this happens to me often, too. Being sidetracked by feet is totally acceptable.
Like taking blog breaks.
We’re having all the best ideas today.
woohoo for us!
I put a lot of feets pics in my blog…it proves I have them. and shoes! I like shoes too!
sorry… waffle…I had a long day yesterday!
Excellent legal idea going on here.
I like to make sure I propose only quality legal ideas. Especially if they benefit me. 😉
Cat puke does not wash of keyboards easily…..bet you knew that…..LOL
Eek – I’m glad that’s ONE attention-grabber my cat hasn’t tried. I might be forced just to get a new computer and call the other one a loss 🙂
Wait! I think my daughter’s cat must be leading a double life!! 23-yr. old lives with us presently, thus the cat. Andy is hilarious. When he gets in your lap, first he shoves his ass – I mean tail – into your face (kind of like your picture up there). Then, if you don’t pet him he head-butts you until you do. I can’t help but spoil him. Since my kids aren’t interested in my affection, I have to dump it on the kitties (yes, I have 2 of my own, but that’s another wonderful story)!
I’m kidding you not, my Bella (a 14-week old German Shepherd) was standing on my laptop 2 weeks ago when I *temporarily* put it on the floor. And this Tuesday, she decided to ‘type’ a little. The next moment all I could see was that my screen was flipped, so I had to bow my head to the left 90 degrees in order to read off it. It took me 15 minutes to figure out that I had to press ALT+CTRL+Up in order to restore it to normal. these pets… They are little pests, and still it’s so hard not to love them.
omg I do this all the time on my work computer! I had to call our IT dept the first time. I guess I type like a German Shepherd puppy, ha!
Oh man. I can’t even picture the disaster that is the whole weight of a German Shepherd puppy on a laptop! (But holy crap – SO CUTE! More pics on your blog please, Olena!)
And don’t worry, Kristie – I totally do, too 😉
*I wonder when I will finally learn to check my spelling & grammar prior to commenting on anything…*
Cats are so good for that. Mine does the same thing. She doesn’t sit on my computer but she headbutts my arm so hard that it messes up my typing.
My cat used to do that in the car – I didn’t have a carrier to put her in. She’d wait until I had to be super focused on the road (say, there was ice, or we were on a narrow bridge), and then she’d headbutt me in the elbow.
Cats: Out to destroy us and make us type poorly 😉
Aaah thank you for following my blog! (I swear, I got so excited when I got the notification. In a completely non-stalker, non-creepy way of course) I love reading your entries ever since I saw it on Freshly Pressed. Keep on the great writing! 😀
Thanks! I appreciate the call-out, and I love your blog! 🙂
“She’s also kind of shove-y and personal-space-invade-y” — I feel like this is also how people would describe me. So, you know what cat? I totally get you.
And we are awesome.
In hindsight, that’s how people describe me, too. We can form a club. Or a union.
