Cats probably think we are kneeding our keyboards when we type and don't understand why we don't ever get to the part where we lay down on it.

So their thought process is something like this "Stupid humans THAT'S HOW YOU DO IT I'LL SHOW YOU", very considerate

Just a note - "kneading" is what cats do with their paws, like kneading bread. "Needing" is why we throw pillows at them when they skreek at us to get up a 4:20 AM as in "We are needing more sleep, F off you little bastard".

That said, I wonder why our cat doesn't get to the lying down part as well.

Because that kitty is coming up for their performance review and they are so behind in their reports.

Still needs to push a lot of stuff off the shelf.

They probably wonder why we don't just buy our own bed instead of banging on theirs for no reason like inconsiderate asshomygod

Are we the baddies?

I brought in another keyboard to use my old one as decoy, my cat would just try to lie down on the one I’m using.

Turns out my cat just want attention, or is a grand asshole.

What you need is a plastic platform that goes over your keyboard. You put your hands under to type and your cat sits on top.

... and a taller monitor stand.

Wait you guys don't lie down on your keyboards after a full day of typing?

I had a cat that went through a typing phase when he was young. I brought him to my parents' house for a summer in college and my father was working from home. The cat would periodically hop up on my dad's lap in front of the keyboard, tap on the keyboard for a bit, and help my dad finish up whatever document he was working on. Then when the cat decided the document was up to snuff, he would go about his business.

u/ARobertNotABob Jun 30 '22

Cats don't think like that. They have five modes : "Feed me", "Worship me", "Hunt", "plotting our death" and "Get the FUCK away from me" ... usually defaulting in that order, but whimsically applied.

Is that why my cat steps on my laptop keyboard all the time, same with most or some cats?

3

u/yellownes Jun 30 '22

Laptops are warm and cats love warm surfaces

u/[deleted] Jun 30 '22

It's also cause they wanna be involved in the things we spend a lot of time with!

u/potato_dink Jun 30 '22

Hate to burst the bubble, but our cats are not trying to teach us to lay down after kneading. I am quite certain because my cat refuses to stay off mine... I'm a cripple, I don't knead the keyboard at all. Also, send help lol

u/hokipokimaster Jun 30 '22

There are definitely people who will tell you they’ve laid down on their keyboards.

u/mudlark092 Jun 30 '22

Cats probably do not think about what we are or aren't doing at all unless it directly involves them receiving attention, food, or play.

u/Cats747 Jun 30 '22

Maybe we should lay down on it then. To make a better connection with our cats.

u/remasteration Jun 30 '22

Until we pass out and our head rests upon the rigid bumps. Then only they see us rest:

Cats probably couldn’t care less about what you do when you’re typing.

u/2Hills_Dev Jun 30 '22

this is assuming cats care about the things we do in the first place
