Keyboard with Cattitude

Posted on Dec 3, 2010 by Lisa Ricard Claro   15 Comments | Posted in animals · cat · Luna

Luna apparently thought my last post lacked an air of realism.  She kidnapped my keyboard and held it hostage for the better part of a half hour.

Now that I have my laptop back, I’ve got work to do. Hope everyone has a terrific weekend!

Til next time –

    I read an article once that stated a cat's purr has the same decibles as an electronic healing device used by physical therapists. They discovered this when a woman claimed relief from elbow joint inflammation after her cat snoozed in the crook of her elbow. Now if this turns out to be scientifically proven instead of antecdotal, I am going to get a litter of kittens and let them sleep on my shoulder.

    Lisa, cute kitty. Linda, I have heard that cats have healing "powers," too. I never thought much about that until a strange thing several years ago with my husband's cat (who never liked me nor anyone else except my husband). For a few nights I was really sick. He always laid on my husband's side of the bed and rarely even came near me. But on each of those nights he came and laid down and stretched his body right along side mine and purred. I don't know that he "healed" me, but it felt very comforting. After I got better, he went back to his old ways. :)Carmen

    Hi Linda – That wouldn't surprise me in the least. It would explain why most cats saunter about with an air of superiority, as if they know something the rest of us don't. If you ever find proof of that, I'm with you on the litter of kittens. 🙂

    Hi Bookie – She really is a good companion, except when she goes into her ninja kitty mode and begins stalking everything that moves, including my fingers on the keys. 🙂

    Hey Dom – Haha…yes. I suppose Luna made sure we both had time for a catnap!Hi Jane – She is only three months old, but she already knows how to settle in and get comfy. 🙂

    Hi Carmen – Animals are known for their usually calming effect on humans. It is true that when one of our cats (we have 3 now counting Luna…the other two are old ladies at 13) settles in for a snuggle and begins to purr it is very comforting. Not that I'll share this with my cats, but when my dogs snuggle up it has a similar effect. :)Hi Becky – Luna does love the warmth. She also sleeps behind my laptop where it is even warmer. She also discovered the heat blowing out of the floor vents, but she tries to catch it! Pretty funny to watch. 🙂

    Adorable! She has good taste in blogs…or maybe she just likes looking at herself. 🙂

    Looks like a good excuse for not writing to me.

    Years ago, a co-worker had to bring her kitten to the office because her apartment was being flea-sprayed. The kitten hung out in my office for a while, and at one point, she crossed my keyboard. I looked up at the screen and saw that she had typed the word "from."
