To Use The Computer Or Not

Updated on June 10, 2011

Heads Or Tails

My cat sits and then comfortably lays directly across my computer desk like I am in his way

My keyboard is barely visible with a tail wagging and his butt inches away

I could scoot my cat down but it would be no use

My cat would return again and again with more persistance and determination to get his way

Instead I try to keep kissing him to annoy him enough that he will climb down by his own free will

So far it is me typing away with a cat tail flickering any old way

I could just yell at him to get down

But he looks so peaceful like a baby that has to eat but so tired that has fallen asleep

Why wake the baby

So why wake my cat

Let him win this battle over territorial rights

It is kind of funny to see me type and try to get out of his way

Then a sound from outside turned him quickly around

I might get my chance to type in peace

No instead he just changed positions and stretched

He watches me closely as I aggreviate him by hitting the keys

I have not only a friend but a mascott with big white paws to give me company

I wonder what your thinking in your little head

As you knock over my cup as you get up

You nodd your head and slowly move towards me then in the other direction

You probably want me to leave so you can get some rest

As you walk and then jump on the printer to observe the situation

After careful thought you decide to leave

Leaving me typing as I please

I have heads and tails looses this time

What fun you can have with a furry little feline

That doesn't talk but speaks his mind

      That's a good name for a band! Recently my friend Chris & I played live together for the first time in 28 years. It went down really well, & one of the numbers we did was 'stray cat strut' !

      Wilbury Steve Now we have both music and cats in common.You should create your own band called the Musical Cats that express your love for music as well as your love for your cats.Thanx for sharing.How is your music coming? Charlu well you will have to split up your computer time equally with your dogs.Maybe pull over a chair and let them sit next to you.This way you can do what you want and they can spend time with you.You can have the best of both worlds.Thanx for enjoying.

      Eiddwen I am always thinking how each hub I read is different in some way.They spark something inside of me to want to write more.Then when I comment on someones hub it takes me a few minutes to think.I get head rush of all kinds of thoughts because the hub is still fresh in my head.I can sit still or laugh for a minute or just have a tear in my eye.Each writing moves me in some way.But in the end it is always the same feeling I feel.I am so glad the HubPages are real.I have to pinch my cheek to make sure it is not another dream I'm dreaming.Thanx so much and appreciated greatly.I am proud to be part of something so wonderful and powerful.That when I leave here I feel we have all helped each other in some little way but it changes our hearts and our lives forever.

      I really enjoyed reading this & could totally appreciate exactly what you are saying. My cats also like to sit on me or the computer desk, usually causing the computer to throw out a few random beeping noises as they use the keyboard as a step up onto the desk! Thanks for posting :>)
