Paws For Thought

Nova is a bit of a feline up-start; there’s no other way to describe him. The idea originally had been to name him Super Nova, and although that never happened I’m sure somehow he knew.

A cat with attitude, that’s for sure. He knows what he wants and he knows how to get it. Ignoring his wants is not an option for quite simply this cat will persist and persist. It is a case of, ‘Go ahead. Take no notice. But do so at your own peril.’

I can’t remember exactly the moment it happened. Nova became computer literate! He’s a crafty cat, a sly one, and it’s just by chance that I discovered his game. He kicked up such a kerfuffle in the kitchen that I left my laptop to see what was going on.

The kitchen was empty when I arrived but on returning to my laptop, I saw the tip of his tail vanish behind the screen. A message had been sent, but I’m sure it had not been sent by me. I peeked round the laptop, and Nova was laying there, nonchalantly licking one of his front paws. He couldn’t have, could he? No, the idea was just ridiculous.

Nova got a liking for it, tapping the keys, and he was really very good at it. He did not keep up the pretence for long, but quite blatantly demanded his typing time. It’s got to the stage now where I am considering buying him his own laptop.

I have noticed one thing about Nova, though. He will NEVER touch the mouse.
