What does your cat think about your electronic devices?

The Cat and the Printer
Hello my furiends! I’m George and I’m super stoked to be featuring in this week’s Caturday Doodle. Like all cats, I am very attuned and connected to my environment and everything around me should have their place. But I’m also one of those cats that get easily over-stimulated by enthusiastic human cuddles when the energy transferred is just too much to bear. Luckily my humans know this and everything is good in the cuddles department.
But there is one other thing in my cat environment that I don’t quite think belongs there and it needs to go.
I’ve told my humans on numerous occasions through my diverse eloquent vocalizations that “the beast must go” but it falls on deaf ears. This ‘thing’, this ‘beast’ is what they call the “purrinter” and what a misnomer, it does anything but purr! It utters the most incomprehensible gobbledygook I’ve ever heard and makes Lewis Carroll’s The Jabberwocky, make sense. Now, why would the humans keep something as obsolete and dumb as that around, when it doesn’t even make any sense at all? Well, I question why they still keep Charlie around, which doesn’t make sense to me either, but that’s another story for another day.
My tech savvy friend Mr. Jack “the hack” can get into anything online so we don’t need this purrinter contraption. I was told via the cat vine, that humans are killing more trees when they use this monster. We cannot have that happening since I am the tree hugger. (Well, I hug my cat tree but let’s not get pedantic, a tree is a tree!)
So when this ‘beast’ starts uttering its maddening soliloquy of sad ‘bunkum balderdash’, I leap over and try to tame it with my calming reiki-like energy. But alas, this beast cannot be tamed and I look forward to the day when he breathes his last goodbye and gets relegated to the recycle heap.
So, friends, I ask with perked up curious whiskers, what is your take on this “purrinter” beast and how do you deal with his teasing nonsensical retorts? Please let me know, I’d like to hear from fellow beast slayer kitties and their humans.

Toby loves printers! He’s so obsessed with them I had to put mine away and and printer every thing at work!
That’s funny! It doesn’t matter where in the house George is, when he hears the printer he dashes upstairs and is totally transfixed. ?
You art is quite adorable. We don’t have much to do with the printer anymore as it is in a room where we do not go. We know it is something that makes our mom quite frustrated at times. It seems to disconnect itself from the computer for no apparent reason. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
Yes indeed, so very frustrating for the humans too ?
I don’t like the purrinter beast either, but for the most part, ours is quiet. As long as he doesn’t get noisy I can live with him.
Great that you can coexist peacefully, all my other friends don’t seem to mind him much.
Luckily no one in our house has been surprised at the printer!
Thank you and hope you had a cuddly Caturday!
I think your purrinter is living his own life, they all do… you know, that’s why I don’t have anything with them 😀 Your artwork is purrfect though 😉 Pawkisses for a Happy Caturday 🙂 <3
Thank you ? I can’t help myself and get so worked up with the purrinter. I guess I shoudl leave him be. Hope you had a cool Caturday!
We love this! We usually attack the printer thingy…it’s always spitting out paper!
Yes! I always attack or I do my reiki thing to make him stop spitting the paper ?
I love your artwork each week SO much! Mudpie is very thankful we don’t have a printer 🙂
Oh thank you, so glad you like it?? Yes, Mudpie is not missing out on anything ??
what? You didn’t see my comment on your last post where I mentioned I prefer the printer? Love, Cody
Yes Cody! My friend, Mr Jack, told me you like the printer and so does Peaches and Paprika. So, the big Mama Cat thought she’ll do a post about moi! ?
Very cute art.
Thank you ?
I love to watch the printer … one of these days, I’m going to catch one of those fast typing elves! I’ve also been known to chase the scanning light around the glass 🙂
Heh heh that sounds like so much fun chasing the light. ?
I agree with you and love the art. Our printer makes these LOUD screechy noises when TW turns it on. Then it sounds like a car motor turning over. Luckily she uses it mostly for scanning so she doesn’t use paper and kill trees.
BTW, that yellow blob in my art is a nip duck—George the duck if you’re on Twitter.
Thank you and you’re so right about those noises. And paper is so ‘yesterday’, unless it’s the drawing app called “Paper” which the mama lady cat uses to draw her art. ? Now let me go and check out George the duck! ?
Nice try, George! I love your mom’s Caturday Doodles.
Oh yes, I will keep trying to tame him. Thank you, we are very happy she is drawing more of us. ?
I like the printer. In fact, I am fascinated by it. My mum doesn’t seem to use it much nowadays though. I suppose she is worried about the trees.
Yes, I think our humans only use it for what they call “impurrrrtant documents” ?
LOL purrinter beast! My purrinter has many scratches from my cat 🙁
OOh I can just imagine that!
MOL – Me likes to watch stuffs fall outta the printer beast and chase the papurrs! -Katie Kitty Too.
Isn’t that so much fun?! MOL High Paw to you! ?
