Same here ;-) May 22, 2007

Our cat does exactly the same thing! We have to keep her away from the printer at all timesicon_frown.gif

:)! May 22, 2007

So you can't walk away for a cup of coffee while the printer is producing your final translation:) Not without the cat anyway..:)

Exactly! May 22, 2007

I have to either:

1) close the door of the room where my "office" is
2) lock the cat in a nother room so she can't access the printer
3) hold the cat in my arms during printing, but that's always at my own risk of getting scratches everywhereicon_wink.gif

Or not print at all... but that's a bit tiring for the eyes!

Birds do it, too! May 22, 2007

I used to have a love bird that would pounce on my papers and chomp strips off of them (to make a nest, I guess). One time he ate my paycheck!

Delightful May 23, 2007

Mine only watch the pages coming out of the printers (both laser and bubble jet). They somehow never dared attacking...icon_wink.gif

Thanks for sharing!

Ours only like to watch, too. And I guess the fact that we have a laser printer doesn't help (maybe the pages come out a bit too fast?).

Our oldest one actually prefers to watch the images in the monitor (see my profile picture)...

Cuuute.... icon_biggrin.gif

That was fun! May 29, 2007

My furry colleague thinks walking on the keyboard is helping.

There's another funny film online of a cat flushing the toilet over and over then jumping onto the bowl to see the water. The story is that the cat's owner cottoned on to his little trick after receiving some hefty water bills!

Kitties, you're lucky we love youicon_smile.gif
