  1. I notice John’s legs are now modestly clothed, and Lopsided Cat’s expression is no longer terrified.

    Maybe Chang was right.

  2. So you’ll be adding “Professional Cat Furniture” to your resume as soon as they let you reach the keyboard?

  3. That’s why you should always have a ready supply of cat toys within reach. Just a quick toss of a catnip filled mouse will often free oneself from furry domination.

  4. #19: One can never be truly “free” from feline domination. And they know it, too, trust me on this :-)

    On a completely different note: John, recently you recommended “Of Blood and Honey”, by Stina Leicht (sp), in one of your Big Idea posts. I ordered it immediately. Due to the subject matter, I thought my MIL (born in Ireland, raised in England) might enjoy it, so when it arrived I brought it to my inlaws’ to show it to her. She thanked me profusely, read it within a week, and now one of her sisters wants to borrow it.
    I had to explain to her that *I* hadn’t read it yet, and that I’d really just brought it over as a “you can have it when I’m done if you want it” kind of gesture.

    And hubby swore she didn’t like fantasy :-)

  5. I think there is a flaw in your “smaller desk” theory. Now there is no room for the cats on the desk, so they have no choice but to occupy your lap.
    Its your fault really. Its unfair to blame the cats.

  6. Obviously the cats feel neglected. In need of ‘quality time’. Your work is clearly not their priority.

    Play with us, or else
    Nothing will get done around
    Here; That’s a promise

  7. Personally, I can write with two cats on my lap. Granted they only both jump on if I’m sitting in the usual position for typing, rather than reclined as you are in the picture. And combined they probably take up as much room as Lopsided Cat. The third cat is more of a detriment to typing if he needs lap time, because my wrists or the keyboard tray might touch him on occasion, which cannot be tolerated and must be punished with bloodletting.
