    Just wait. In a year or two that cat will grow up and become fat. It will just sit there and watch the background moving around and move its head back and fourth. Then it will try to paw at it once, maybe twice if your lucky. Then it will turn to the camera and just stare at it saying, "I am not amused" blinking its eyes at you. :rofl:

    :rofl: Ember has done a few dances across the keyboard, but alas, for all the things she's good at, operating the computer isn't one of them. She still thinks chasing the pointer on the screen is a big deal, and I have to move it for her. :rolleyes: I think she will have to rely on her good looks more than her brains, though she might have a potential career going pro playing fetch. She's already mastered the slam dunk into the toilet bowl.

    Am I missing something here? That cat was pathetic. Its just hitting keys and amusing itself.

    No, tere was a VERY clear intent in that cats eye. Without a doubt it was preparing the composition of the world's greatest musical masterpiece. OBVIOUSLY.

    My cat likes to unroll toilet paper. Sometimes he shreds the entire roll and leaves it in front of the toilet. Every once in a while he does it in all 3 bathrooms. :mad:

    I'll add more to this list later. LOL!

    why does this thread have so many views...

    are people unable to resist clicking on a thread relating to cats?

    mindless drone clicking increases popularity to epic proportions?

    I'm a cat lover! :biggrin: A good majority of people where I live have a cat(s). I know everything there is to know about cats. Cat's think toys are fun. :biggrin: And, a cat is a wonderful creature to be loved and knows it. People who don't like cats wouldn't understand.
