"The playful kitten, with its pretty little tigerish gambols, is infinitely more amusing than half the people one is obliged to live with in the world." ~ Lady Sydney Morgan
Butter wouldn't melt....
This is the picture of a most expensive cat. This is the cat that thought he could steal a wishbone & swallow it undetected. Ummmm. A boat ride, a couple of hours at the vets & several hundred dollars later my cat was returned to me considerably subdued & far less inclined to steal. This time I was not so lucky.
I can no longer drink large amounts of coffee so I judiciously make myself the occasional latte throughout my day. I look forward to them, savour them ~ limit them. They aren't terribly helpful to a middle~aged waistline. I drink them while perusing blogs on~line ~ a habit my cats are very aware of.
And my cats, while terribly spoilt & allowed to snuggle on the desk with my computer & my coffee & me avoid my coffee cup. It smells weird ~ & bitter. They know it's hot. And I am used to cats suddenly leaping up beside me, stomping across my keyboard & plonking their butt near the fan. It happens numerous times every single day, & every day there is my cup parked on the desk where any spill is least likely to wreck havoc.
Today Kirby took a flying leap from the floor to the desk to the printer. Enroute he collected the coffee cup & dumped the entire contents over my laptop! This was not healthy for my laptop. We mopped up the mess & headed down to the computer man with my damp computer.
The computer man shook his head mournfully. It was unlikely, he told us sadly, that anything bar the harddrive could be salvaged. Still, he was prepared to investigate. We were prepared to have him investigate.
Our computer man is my hero! ♥ ♥ ♥ Kirby is still alive. I am poorer than I was. My computer is working again!
And the moral of this story: When preparing to write a message the devil does not want delivered, pray harder before beginning! It has been an exciting day
