Photo Friday: My Blogging Assistant

Working on a blog post can be quite a daunting task. It is not coming up with Ideas or finding the right words that are the biggest problem. The hardest part is seeing the screen or typing when a 12 pound cat is standing in front of you or lying across one arm and part of the keyboard. I’m sure many of you reading this can relate.

Bad Cat Chris and Chuck

Notice the keyboard is pushed away because Chris was either stepping on it or lying on it.

Even writing this post has been a chore. My little assistant has done everything but actually help. He started by lying on my right arm, forcing me to push the keyboard away and type left-handed. I then moved him to my lap, which sometimes works but this time he jumped down and started biting my legs. He then got up and decided to help me type. He is now back on my lap allowing me to finish this post.

As soon as I finished that last sentence he got up to stare down Frankie. He must have noticed I was done.

    Hehe. I have a large desk so a cat gets to lay on the left side of it in comfort and another one behind it. The problem is when someone decides they need attention and starts patting my arm or moving the keyboard with their head. Or when I get leg rubs and pitiful mews from the youngest cat.

      You are lucky to have a large desk. My desk is just big enough to work alone. I think when you blog you are paying attention to something other than them so they naturally want attention more.

          A larger desk could be nice but we have downsized quite a bit these last few years and just don’t have the room. I would like to someday compress our belongings small enough to live on a boat.
