the kitties want more screen time here!



I shot these photos last weekend when I caught Shinji and Jon catching up on some bonding time. Shinji has a major crush on Jon and often looks up lovingly into his eyes as they share a special moment together (much to my dismay). Shinji has always been jealous of me because I took Jon away from him. In fact, just after we got married, I woke up to find Shinji sprawled out between us, pushing us toward opposite ends of the bed. Jealous much?! Shinji still sleeps between us, but he has finally started to warm up to me. One out of ten times he will even choose me over Jon. Success!





Lately, Shinji and Nuku Nuku have become very enamored with the world of blogging and emailing. They're always trying to help us out by pushing the space bar to scroll to the bottom of the page while we're reading and by highlighting text whenever we need to do a quick copy/paste. And they're especially good at helping us type posts and emails. They're spelling isn't so good, so they often type words that contain only one letter continuously, but we're holding out hope for improvement in this area!





And, horror of horrors, Nuku Nuku has figured out how to press the "num lock" key on my keyboard with her paw. The first time she did it, I was majorly panicked because I thought my computer had died, but luckily, I figured out what she had done just before I went to call the Apple helpline. I'm glad I didn't embarrass my self with that question: "Only the 9 center keys are working, and they are just typing out numbers. What should I do?" I'm a smart one, you know!



Stay tuned...the kitties are pressuring me to finish their cat nip toys. Will I finish them before the cat nip goes stale? Hard to say...

  1. LOL that is so cute. Before the cats ran away there were times there where the only thing keeping me in bed some nights was the wall. They took over a year to warm up to me and accept that they had to share their bed and human. That second photo just kills me, it's sooo cute. It reminds me of Rastus watching Shrek when Puss in Boots was on screen.

  2. Cats have much more discriminating tastes than dogs. I am always trying to win over my friend's cats whenever I see them. My dogs on the other hand, loves anybody that comes through the door. I always joke that they would even welcome burgulars.

  3. Our cats must know your cats because they too have hit the number lock which I didn't even know was on the keyboard! I also had to ask someone what was going on and boy did we laugh when we figured it out. I never leave the laptop open unless I am at it anymore...one time I came back and it was rebooting in safe mode...LOL!

  6. Shinji is a beautiful cat. We used to have a cat that used to like to sit on the computer monitor (before flat-screens!) because he liked the heat up there.
    Great cabled purse in your last post, BTW.

  7. Cats are so cute. Now, I am sure that my little 15 month girl was previously a kitten too. She does the same as your cats when I am with my lap top.

  10. Oh so cute! What adorable kitties. My cat Sophie does the exact same thing whenever we pull out the laptop. She love to watch the mouse move across the screen and then try to catch it on the other side. It never works. She also likes to watch movies on the laptop with me. And standing on the keyboard is slowing becoming a favorite of hers since she has figured out it gives her all the attention.

  11. What a cute kitty! Those are really neat names you have for them. When I had a cat her name was just Isabella!
