Mom bought a new (refurbished) laptop, which I love. When she works in the office on her desktop, I have to sit in a chair or on the desk on the other side of the tower case. When she works in the front room on a laptop, I can sit next to her on the couch.
She also bought a new case to carry the laptop in. It’s a battery case, with zippers and pockets and pouches and wires and a rechargeable battery, so she can work on her laptop for a long time in the last place I want her to be — away from me!
Here’s a picture she took of me doing what cats do best: claiming your things as their own. I would like to think that, if I’m on the case, Mom can’t take her laptop and go anywhere, but I no longer have any illusions about that. She would shift me in a heartbeat.
Oh, well, she always comes back, and that’s the important thing.
