Kitties Unite!

I was on the desk while Mommy was working and I happened to glance down at the magazine I was laying on and saw something totally shocking! I had to look back to make sure it was only in the magazine and not real life...
I'm going to show you what I saw but kitties, you are not going to believe it! You must not show your humans this so please keep it between us only! Here it is...
The photo is accompanied by a description worthy of filling a litterbox. Are you ready for this? Okay, here goes...

Create a defined workspace for yourself that keeps your focus in and your kitty out.

It's cute the first couple of times kitty traipses across your keyboard while your at your computer. But by the tenth time it becomes a distracting annoyance, especially when you've got work to do.

Now you can prevent your pet from walking across your work area with CatNix. These freestanding partitions help you stay focused on work rather than requiring you to shoo away the cat.

Everykitty knows that 1) we can't be kept out of anywhere, 2) we are cute ALL the time and are NEVER a distracting annoyance and 3) we are not to be shoo'd away from anything (unless it's dangerous and a keyboard certainly does not meet that definition). This is how I proved my point...

I suggest you do the same. We have to take a stand and not let humans get any ideas that things like that will be tolerated. Desktops or laptops will not keep us from claiming any prime spot no matter what! We must nix the CatNix!

I don't think the person who invented the CatNix has a clue about real kitties. There is always another route up, via the lap and directly ONto the keyboard.

I thought it was a speical way to provide photos of the kitties on either side of the monitor. All the time.

PFFT! Like that'd keep US out! You ladies teach your mummy not to look at such silly sites!

Sparkle said...

What the--??? I have been betrayed by Skymall! What a terrible idea, and stupid too - if I wanted my human's attention, believe me, I would just shove those things to the side and walk right over the keyboard. OMC, that wins the award for most useless invention of the year!

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

OMC! How awful! We are gonna join yoo in a "sit-in" against catnix! the cheek of catnix # trying to cash in on our pesky ... erm ... I mean helpful behaviour!

Karen & Gerard Zemek said...

I'd let you come sit in front of my computer any day! Phooey on CatNix! When Manny comes, after I pet him a bit, I just ask him nicely to move and he does! Not a problem.

Don't believe me? Here's proof: http://zemeks.blogspot.com/2010/10/our-favorite-part-of-day.html

They know nothing about us kitties! Down with CatNix!!!

Catherine said...

GASP! Very shocking! Clearly the inventor was having a mental brain cramp when creating such a useless piece of plastic. Tsk tsk.

Throw Cat Nix out the window. Like Simba said, we just jump from lap up onto lap and there you are. Besides our Mom has all her junk spread all out all over the place so how the world could do her work in a little confined place like that. Besides we have to snooopervise what the assistant is going, for heavens sake.
Take care and have a fun day.

Faith said...

Lol, that ad is definitely litter box material! Hopefully none of the humans get any ideas! :)

Natalie said...

What a ridiculous little gadget! Clearly invented by someone who's never had a cat.

Admiral Hestorb said...

That's outrageous and as the other kitties said (not that mommy tries to keep me OFF..she does not!) We csn simply get on the keyboard by way of our mom's lap! Silly inventor. Scat! Go 'way!

Grace said...

I think BB may agree with you. I shall have to post his protest today.

Erika said...

I have to agree with Simba; did the creator of this screen have cats? Besides, I think the kitties are better in your way than far away.

Who would want to keep your beautiful face out!

I think your next protest needs to be that you don't have a bloggy day all to yourself! Tortie Tuesday, Stoll With Sadie...Antics with Angel?

Boo-Bah said...

When will humans ever learn, we CATS RULE!!! We do what we want, when we want, where we want. Need we say more?

Your cat pals,
Peanut and Marshmellow

We think this calls for the kitty union to lodge a huge protest!!! We are sure your Mom won't do that to you.

magazine boycott!!!

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Well, we think that is a stupid invention, and we know we could get past it. And of course for us it isn't even an option, because mom uses her laptop - aw, too bad!

Ann said...

Obviously made by someone who doesn't know what a treat it is to have a kitty on your keyboard.

Stacy Hurt said...

*GASP* You have GOT to be KIDDING right? And what, prey tell, was this horrendous device doing on YOUR persons desk??? Of all the nerve! .tsk.tsk.tsk. Is she trying to scare you to death?

Oh Ya; AND it's plastic! How 'green' is that?? NOT!!! So by NOT using it we are not only making the world a better place for cats; we are keeping our humans in line protecting the planet!

The person who invented that probably does not have a cat. Any self-respecting feline will find another way to "help" you work on the computer.

There is the lap route:where a quick jump on the lap will give the cat total and complete keyboard access.

There's the aerial assault where the kitty will go over the top, perch on the monitor, and then plop down.

Finally, there is the frontal assault, where the panels come down and crash all over your keyboard.

Jean said...

Um, she does not look happy - at all that her human had the nerve to try something like that.

Jean said...

Our person hasn't heard of this "CatNix" and we are going to make sure she doesn't see this post. Thanks for the paw up!
Hectate and Bobo...meow.

What and evil, evil device! Who would come up with such a thing? Surely our mom wouldn't dream of purchasing such a faulty product. Isn't that right, mom? Mom? Mooooom!

Reeni said...

Aww, Angel, I can't imagine your Mom ever wanting to keep you out! You're too cute. One time I did step all over my Mom's keyboard and erased a whole bunch of important writing she did. Oops! Love, Moon
