Humans keep getting more and more electronic toys. A lot of them seem to be called “Get off of that” or “You can’t sit there.” They’re taking up more and more of our humans’ time. That’s a bad thing. They’ve even come up with what they call “cat apps” that are supposed to appeal to us. (We think it’s just to keep us occupied so they don’t have to play.)
We’ve come up with a list of questions that you can answer and show to your human.
Do you prefer old television sets or new ones?
There is no doubt that the old ones were far superior to lay on: large heated flat surfaces.
But if you want to watch with a friends, today’s larger screens are a definite plus.
Would you rather lay on a book or a computer while your human is reading/using it?
Books are extremely comfy beds. If you can lay on it while it’s on your human’s lap, you can have comfort and cuddles.
But you can actually help your human on a computer.
Do you like live mice better than computer mice?
Live mice are fun to chase and play with.
Computer mice are easier to catch.
Do you prefer live Cat TV or computer Cat TV?
You never know what you’ll see on live Cat TV.
However, some games are only available on the computer.
Do you like old telephones better than smart phones?
Old phones were better for napping.
With a smart phone, you can screen your calls to avoid talking to that really annoying neighbor.
Do you prefer running for fun or for exercise?
You never know who you might find to play with outside.
Treadmills make excellent beds. (And you can usually avoid being annoyed by your human there.)
Do you prefer games with your human or games with their computer?
Your human will probably have more than one game to play. (But probably will quit before you are done.)

Humans would definitely have more fun and be fitter if they had less tech and more cat time, and that includes running down to the shops to buy us extra cheese topped pizza and fancy food treats!
Yumm! We like the way you think. Purrs Snoops and Kommando Kitty
Purr-fect. Happy Caturday.
Yeah, I think humans are too addicted to their tech toys. You guys are great.
We’re blushing under our fur
Our cleaning lady once said she had something very important to tell me. It was: “You can now get movies for cats.”
Wow. I wonder if they come with subtitles for us
I think the real life examples beat out the technological ones. I did like particularly the use of the treadmill!
I agree, and most cats still like to sit on papers and magazines
The new tvs are nice but how can you beat cat tv?
Purr-cisely. Purrs Snoops and Kommando Kitty
Frodo definitely prefers live mice but loves my Kindle better than old-school books cause it is warmer!
He’s adaptable; that’s a good thing
We still have a landline and my Joanie loves to take it off the hook when she wants a snack,
That’s pretty clever. Maybe she’s planning to call for take-out if she doesn’t get the treat. 🐱
