Lola has many places that she likes to sleep. The Princess Pod, in the cat tree, on the computer chairs, and on top of the computers. When we’re using the computers though she will also come and sleep between the keyboard and the computer screen.
Keyboards are of course a popular sleeping place for many cats. Laptop keyboards especially can be nice as they get lovely and warm, and we all know cats enjoy being warm!
I wonder though if there’s another reason for cats’ love of the computer area. Perhaps it has something to do with our love of the computer area! We humans do tend to spend a lot of time at the computers, after all.
Perhaps cats’ interest in computers is, at least in part, a result of us being there. It lets them be close to us whilst they sleep. A bit of companionship. And of course it makes it very easy to reach out and request a stroke. Or food!
