Just too obvious: cat and mouse…

October 11, 2007

Well, this is just so sad. It turns out cats are getting addicted to Facebook just as people are, according to a new study.

This photo, taken yesterday in New York City, shows a typical felineface.com user, wasting her days reading major garbage like “Places I’ve Napped,” “Cleo has sent you a hairball,” and “Tux and Midnight are now friends.

What’s worse, the study found that as a result, cat productivity – whatever that is – is dropping dramatically. Who even knew that was possible?

Very cute, but that looks more like a label maker than a laptop, and the mouse isn’t even connected to it. No wonder this cat is getting nothing done.

Is that even a computer? The mouse cable just disappears over the edge of the table. On the other hand, it is just a stupid cat that will never understand the difference no matter how many times you explain it.

There is a powerful spring inside. All that it takes is for the cat to hit the red key and then the top snaps shut, crushing the cat’s skull. Cunning mice, if you ask me.
