Technical help

When Uncle Bill was here he fixed my mum's wireless and she was happy as she could tappity tap on her laptop without trailing wires everywhere. It worked fine when he was here but yesterday everything went horribly wrong. Mum was muttering and cursing and looking at a blank screen.

I'm not so much the kind of cat who knows about techy stuff as the kind of cat who will always try to help. I tried helping by pressing some combinations of keys and tugging at some of the wires but in the end we had to give up.

My mum rang a number and after a while I heard her say things like "nothings happening" and "I've tried that" and then "I've got two. A little black one and a cute tortie". I am so very proud of our mum's ability to weave her beloved cats into the conversation on any occasion. Not sure how she did it but for a while there she was exchanging kitty stories with the lady on the phone.

The good news is that she can get to the important websites i.e. Catster and the other good news is that the wires are back trailing because Josie and I like chasing them when they wiggle. Mum says the lady on the phone is going to send her a new box and that should be wireless again. I hope she doesn't get grumpy when she sets that one up and I will help all I can!

My mum uses naughty words when something goes wrong with her computer or internet as she can't live without either of them and sometimes the naughty words get so bad I have to stick my paws in my ears so I can't hear them. Sounds like another thing our mums have in common.

I like "helping" my meowmy with the catputer also! I get in front of the monitor and watch her intently. She tries looking around me to see the monitor, but I block her view efurry time. Then she quits typing on the keyboard, and it is my turn to type. I use the "Hunt and Peck Method" of typing since I have no thumbs. You should try it Toby! MOL! Have a GREAT day!
