Somebody who stops me working: we all have one, who or what is yours?

  1. I have two cats - and they do the same thing! Sometimes they walk across the keyboard. I like to think that they're attempting to communicate with the outside world!

  2. Such beautiful tormentors! And they know it. How come writers usually have cats and that the cats just know it!
    I have four - two older and more accomplished, two kittens learning quickly!
    I think that it is the fascination of paper. I know that I am fascinated, so I secretly admire their ploys.

  4. Awww your cat is lovely! As I've said on my blog, my dog is responsible for stopping me doing anything on the computer or when I'm trying to write.

    Being cute, she gets away with it!

  5. Your cat is beautiful! She reminds me of a cat we had a few years ago. My distractions are a house full of reckless cats and dogs, and one little baby. They love to wait until I sit down to write to let me know they need attention...right now!!

  6. Mine is my 15-month-old grandson. When he wants grandma's attention, he will sneak up behind me, grin and grab something. Then, he will take off running in an attempt to get me to chase him. Quite the little comedian!

  7. So typical of a cat. What is his/her name?

  8. Yes, 3 cats. One likes paper; one likes to chase pens; one likes to lie on the keyboard - then if I do something else entirely, one will inevitably like that too. One of my cats really likes to "help" me change the bedding.

  9. Allergic to cats. It is me who stops me most often.

  10. What a beautiful cat! Mine tends to nuzzle up when I'm reading a book or newspaper so I have to stroke him and read at the same time!

  11. Your kitty is gorgeous!! Maggie is my pestering one (cat). If I'm at my desk then she's usually stretch across pushing papers and books out of her way. If I'm reading, then she wants to sit on my tummy and block the book (or rub it with her head).

  12. What an adorable impediment to working!!

    My two impediments aren't quite as creamy, but they do have that 'oh, come on and cuddle . . . you know you want to' look.

  13. My hairy son, Deacon, is whimpering at my heels this very moment.

    'Go and get your leash...I'll be right there!'

  14. Oh my goodness, how precious your baby is!!! So beautiful! And I can so relate too! My son has a solid black cat that thinks she owns the house (she probably does) and I have a solid standard poodle who is such a wimp although he looks as though he could whip us all into shape. He doesn't even bark for goodness sakes! Yep, our animals own us don't they!

  15. Hello, Hannah! I am one of your new followers. I have arrived at your nice blog through Mirella and I couldn't help writing a comment to talk about my little dog. He is a pinscher, his name is Sancho (at the time I bought it I was preparing an exam about Don Quixote...)and he is lovely but a bit naughty!
    Have a nice day!

  16. What a gorgeous creature! It is a darling picture, you should frame it :) Mine diversion is my boxer Jimmy. He is like the hyper version of Marley, so you can imagine! :)

  17. You have been adopted by a gorgeous cat Hannah! My diversions are of course Bobbi and Jess who have mastered the feline art of 'laying on paper and keyboard'!

  18. What a beauty! Yes, those kitties can be pesky, but they're such fun. My Fiona climbs up onto the printer and threatens to jump on top of my desk if I don't give her enough attention. Love your blog! Thanks for visiting mine. :)
