My not so lovely cat has decided the laptop is his new bed hmm every time I try to move him he hisses and scratches

He does it every time I try to use it. Maybe he doesn't approve of MN?

Haha does anyone else's cat do anything like this?!

Maybe he is more of a Netmums kind of cat? wink

Mine has just came over and stuck his paw in my mouth, the dirty git. Think he wants his dinner. grin

Laptops are made of warm grin

Reminds me of this grin

Of course you are being unreasonable - cats think everything we do is unreasonable!

One of my cats will only sleep in the fruit bowl, even when it's full of fruit. smile He literally spills over the sides and will not budge until he's ready.

Agree! YABU moving a cat is U no discussion lol. Mine used to sleep on the scanner, we got some very cute scans!

Mine sleep on my bed, all four of them, and it's a single bed.

YABU to even consider it. That laptop belongs to the cat now, time to buy a new one grin

Are you actually allowed to move a sleeping cat?

Op beware. The paw of revenge is swift.

Out cats have broken us. We all, me, and 3 teens now leave our doors slightly open at night so they can roam around to settle on which ever bed they choose.

Controlled crying worked with my kids. Abandoned controlled miaowing after it clearly was never going to work! angry

They rule. It's easier that way.

Of course YABU!

But beware of pictures of cute babies and memes showing humans doing silly things popping up in your feed.

You could try playing dog videos on a loop on the YouTubes? DCat might give your laptop back through disgust.

Mine does when I'm doing important work and manages to lose it all. He also sleeps on our virgin media box hmm

One of mine likes to lie on the skybox and wriggle around until she changes it to jewellery channel, she really likes it.
Same cat also hunts loaves of breadconfused

YABVVU - how very dare you try to work when your poor puss needs a kip. Kindly desist. grin

popmimiboo Mon 08-Jun-15 19:19:36

I can't believe you need to ask. Of course you are massively U to move a feline from his newly aquired snoozing spot.
Any notion of disturbing DCat is unreasonable by default.

YAclearlyU and may want to review your cats instruction manual.

Linds53 Mon 08-Jun-15 19:40:59

Here's mine, working hard.

There are two rules:

1. The Cat is Right.
2. When Rule 1 does not apply, Rule 1 still does apply.

Our cat prefers the ironing board, if she hears it going up she's there ready to pounce. Have you tried ironing a white blouse with a black cat helping!

We also have to leave doors open at night or she just makes a fuss until someone gives in and lets her on a bed, preferably the pillow end!

If we all sit down to dinner she comes too, either on a chair at the table (curled up not breathing on the food) or on the back of the sofa watching.

Every morning when it is time to leave for school, she comes out of the front door to watch and wave us goodbye, or if the DC are walking tries to go with them so has to be put back in the house and then they make a run for it before she gets out the cat flap.

My Siamese hates my iPad with a passion it has a cover and he will scratch it and bite it, He does however accept the kindle !!! Weird if we are in bed ( he sleeps cuddled up to my chest ) I can read the kindle but if I so much as pick up the iPad he gets all stroppy and goes down stairs to sulk !!! So I guess you should defiantly not mike you laptop the cat is boss and it's his new bed ��

OTheHugeManatee Mon 08-Jun-15 20:22:19

YABU. You must buy a new laptop smile

CatthiefKeith Mon 08-Jun-15 20:48:17

Be careful if you move him. Mine took the I, the O, the E and the number 9 off with his claws once when I tried to remove him. angry

The touchpad on my laptop hasn't worked since one of mine jumped on it, not a clue what he did but need to plug a mouse in to use it now.

IHaveBrilloHair Mon 08-Jun-15 21:08:37

Mine all enjoy practising for the cat river dance on my pillow at 4 am.
If I put them out they cry and cry to be let back in, then start the cat 100 metre sprint round my bed.
I hate cats.
Photo was taken earlier today, and would you believe the one on the right (Eponine), gave birth to the one on the left (Zazzles)
