7 Reasons Why Cats Love Your Laptop
Last updated January 14th, 2018
Hello everyone and Happy Caturday. It’s Mr. Jack here and today I’d like to talk about an obsession of ours that has probably perplexed humans since its invention. No, it’s not tuna. It’s not even catnip. I have bigger fish to fry and I have my paws firmly gripped onto its keys every day. Yes, it’s your computer, your laptop, your precious iPad, or whatever name it goes by. But for us cats, it doesn’t matter what you call it, a computer by any other name is just as awesome! I know I’m in good company because all you cats out there can relate to this cat obsession with keyboards and technology. Cat savvy humans have tapped into this trend of ours and have even built us some amazing apps for cats. A high paw to that I say!
There are many reasons why we love your computer and why it’s a good thing for you too. I highlight just a few below:
- Your laptop is warm, we love warm places to sleep. No need for expensive cat beds.
- We love it even more while you’re using it. We actually do like the company. We’re a team after all, right?
- We like all the strange things that pop up on the screen and all the sounds they make. That’s cat environment enrichment with no extra effort on your part.
- We provide much-needed stress relief during your work day which helps lower your blood pressure.
- We like overseeing your tasks and you can brag to your friends that your supervisor is a cat.
- We help you discover new keyboard shortcuts that you never knew existed before, increasing your productivity. Therefore, resist the urge to curse the casual paw stroll across your keyboard.
- We like seeing our fur collecting in between the keys. This is a comforting reminder of how deeply we have embedded our presence. Cheek marking is cute, but this is physical evidence of our
domination overdevotion to you.
And finally don’t believe everything the big Lady Cat is posting about us, we really cannot login to your accounts as we lack the opposable thumbs, unfortunately. Although my friend Jimmy, the polydactyl, has been twiddling his furry thumbs about that idea for a while so keep an eye on Tom Thumb. On that note, just a friendly reminder to keep your passwords safe, don’t use the same password for multiple accounts and never ever use your cat’s name for a password!
Below is a typical work day as we supervise the big Man Cat in his daily tasks. We think he appreciates his little helpers.
How do you help your human stay sane in their crazy workday world? When is your favourite laptop/computer time?

Love the art. It reminds me of the pictures here: http://www.sadanduseless.com/2016/06/cat-hackers
Thanks! Heh heh that’s a funny site. Thanks for sharing ?
Finally, an answer to the great question and I can stop pulling my hair out when they jump on my keyboard in the middle of a project! Such little helpers we have. I mean, such very little help! LOL!
One solution that we have for these keeners, is keeping a few shoe boxes on your desk while working. However, these ‘cat traps’ are only temporary and the ‘helpers’ will be back on your keyboard finding new shortcuts. MOL
You are such cuties and great helpers.
Oh I am ALWAYS helping Mom the second she sits down to blog or do anything else on the laptop! Love the drawing and the pic of you all snoopervising.
Thank you, nice to meet another fellow laptop supervisor ?
Love your artwork. So cute and well done. Our mom doesn’t have an arty bone in her body. We like to tag team the humans all day long when they are on the computer. Astrid is the best helper. She knows how to delete whatever Mom has written! XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
See, we love Astrid already, she’s one of our kind ??
Be sure you enter this in the Nose-to-Nose awards next year (or remind me to enter it!!) This is priceless and your drawing that you did is superb!!! This is just too cute! Cody prefers the printer over the laptop, go figure!!
Awwwe thank you, thank you! I will indeed ? Oh and Cody can shake paws with Georgie, who is absolutely fascinated by the printer ?
What a fun post! One day Mudpie walked all over my laptop and I had to use the iPad to get on Google to find out how to undo what she’d done!
I had a good laugh over this, it’s so familiar MOL. ?
Nice art ! Pixie is particularly talented for #6 : Claire has often to restart the computer after her help. Purrs
Heh heh ? That’s funny, or not so funny if you’re the human! But a few times, my friend Scout has activated Siri on mum’s iPad ?
Love the art!
I keep Mum sane by telling her at just after midday that it’s time for our afternoon nap.
Athena and Marie
Awwwe aren’t afternoon naps just the best! xx headboops ?
whoa! How cool that you can draw right on your ipawd. I’ll have to try that. I can’t lay on the keyboard and TW doesn’t have a laptop but I have a cat tree right against the computer desk where I can glare at her.
Hehe heh glaring is vital to the relationship, it keeps the humans in check MOL ?
Our human gets all antsy when we get too close to the keyboard, but it’s so darn irresistible!! Thanks for coming by our blog today – we appreciate your company!
Isn’t it just so irresistible and the humans will never get it! It was a pleasure to read about your kitties with wings and to remember all the others that have passed. ?
Teehee, what a great list!
yay! Glad you like! ??
We adored your “LAPTOP LIST.,” So clever & true. We specialize in walking all over our hunan’s laptop, pressing inexplicable combinations of keys so that afterwards the fonts stretch out and she is purrplexed at how to fix it. She routinely uses “System Restore” on her windows laptop in order to undo our creative work. Whata nerve. We think her laptop looks much better after we’ve “helped” her.
You must do a sequel on the Purrrrinter next!! MOL

Thank you! And you sound like a fun duo, Peaches and Paprika. That’s the thing about humans, they just cannot grasp kitty creativity when it stares them in the face, or rather, on their laptops! Oh yes, a printer sequel will be coming up soon, our friend George, will love that one 🙂
Thanks for dropping by.
It is so funny, especially the art. Haha. Such a great post. Thank you very much for sharing.
Thanks and glad you liked it. ?
WOW!!! This is amazing and informative. Thanks for sharing this
