There is a definite disadvantage to working at home. In some cases, it comes in the form of a four-legged furry creature. One that wants you to pet it. While you’re typing.
Today that creature was Macrocat. The following is a series of pictures I took while I was attempting to work.
Apparently the keyboard looked like a great place to perch and keep an eye on me.
Pretty soon, though, he was trying to run things for me.
But when I switched over to something else, he got bored.
He started to ooze over the keyboard a bit.
I tried to move him away, but he just turned his head.
Then a paw creeped up beside the first one.
And he moved his head over again. Actually, this is after I moved him off the table and he came back.
And that wasn’t quite doing it for him, so he stretched out again.
Finally, he put his paw on the trackpad and put pressure on a key. The computer started making a beeping sound to protest, but macrocat thought the computer was purring at him and merely laid down and purred more loudly in response.
And that was the point where I finally had to banish him.
