Cat and Keyboard

Recommended Posts

I went to the store for some breakfast materials and left my computer on. When I got back, there were at least twenty instances of Firefox Help opened and the FAYT window was open at the bottom with an unending stream of ";!". Firefox was totally locked up. Rebooted, but the keyboard wouldn't work, so I unplugged the USB connector and after plugging it back in, all was OK. My cat had been standing on the keyboard trying to eat the phone line going to my DSL modem. That's all.

I've had a theory for some years. Cats are actually a more advanced race than humans, however they have seen the effort that goes into being the "top" race and decided they didn't want the job. They have manipulated things to the end that "second place" took the job and became cat's servants all in one go...

Cats (and Chihuahuas) are generally much better than humans at discovering the "num lock" key. This can be especially annoying if you're using a laptop or keyboard with some of the keys having multiple uses. Hitting it a second time (the key, not the cat) will often restore the computer to a useful state.

Check the history.

My guess is the cat just locked up the computer to cover his tracks that he was surfing for porn.



Kitty porn:D

I was going to go with that, but was pretty sure somebody would have a hissy fit about the forum rules.



If they don't like it, give 'em a week or two off.

Not had any problems with the cats messing up the computer but my older girl would sometimes crawl around and push anything that could be pushed. Back then the computer was down on the bottom shelf. It's now up on the top shelf out of reach.
