Our cat, Phoenix, tapped the
space bar on the computer to end

into a bag before they start trying to
play with it or hook their claws into

to check papers, my cat, Chloe, insists

the side so I can pet him and read at
the same time.

computer keyboard. How does your cat invade your personal space? c
“I don’t care
about your game. Feed me now.”
