Nice find May 6, 2008

I find it a little eery than in all of the pictures, the box seems to be hovering just above the desk.

Cute item, but, thankfully, my cat prefers the printer to my keyboard.

Giovanni, it's so sad... but I'm sure he lived a wonderful cat life

Stéphanie, I love this catbox thing !
I have a cat and I had to build some kind of wooden cover for her to sit above my laptop keyboard as I use the extra ergonomic keyboard - otheway she was always sitting ON the laptop. I think she likes the heat and maybe the purring of the fan and disk driver.

Sorry to hear that Giovanni May 6, 2008



I definitely have a candidate for that Kitt-in-box - although I will shortly be buying a larger desk to accommodate the felines in my life!

She'd like it May 6, 2008

... but I prefer to let her OUT, because she loves chasing the mouse on the screen (or whatever that's moving in there).

Fortunately for me, there are very few cars out there, and now that she's 14 years old she prefers to take extremely loooooooooong naps inside the garden under the sun, instead of exploring the street.

thank you May 6, 2008

for the kind words. We are all devastated, since he was only one year old... he's the one in the
foreground...

I showed the picture to my personal little lap-parasite May 6, 2008

"Does it come lap-shaped? Can I still release 2 million hairs per minute on your black keyboard?," she asked.

"No."

"It sucks," she said.

Thanks so much for this link, Stéphanie!!!

Giovanni, I am so sorry for your loss.

So sad :( May 6, 2008

I'm so sorry for your loss, Giovanni. I have had a siamese for almost 9 years and love him deeply. I can't imagine him not being around.

I'm pretty sure my cat's thinking along the same lines.:lol::lol:

Speaking of cat-proofing our workspace, has anyone seen this??

oh well.. May 6, 2008

Lucky are those humans who have cats using such devices. If I bought it for my cat he would give me one of those looks that make humans feel a bit stupid for their sensless (according to cats of course) actions . So thank God for windowsills and printers from where he can supervise me

Giovanni, Im really sorry for your loss

Is this for real or a great joke? Either way it's fun It reminds me of a book given by a friend, Why Cats Paint. A total spoof that absolutely took me in!


PS Giovanni, I didn't know if it would be any "help" but I have to say I am heartbroken to hear your loss and imagine how sad you all must be. I'm sure your cat lived a very happy life, he certainly looks happy and loved on the photo.
