|Kaya--I think you only have to worry about your laptop if a 14-pound cat jumps down on it. If it's closed and turned off, and the cat just sleeps on top, you're probably okay.
As for cats and books--when Leila had her litter, my goal was to create incredibly affectionate kitties. Because torties are not very popular in Japan, the girls ended up staying with me longer than the boys, and became very affectionate indeed. Cut to the chase: I love to read in bed, on my side, with the book open next to me (no, I don't read books when they are closed). Hilles and Cabot developed the habit of parking themselves on the open book while I was reading it. I had to explain to them that Mommy was reading a book and couldn't see the words through their fur.
But it was painful to hold the book down and read, even without the cats. In fact, my shoulder is still awfully sore, although the range of movement has improved--during the first two weeks, I couldn't even change my clothes. This pain is nothing compared to what I went through with my hips--heck, you can walk even if your shoulder is shouting "This hurts!"-- but I'm hoping that the actual increase in pain at this point is a sign that the fracture is healing itself. In any event, I have a WONDERFUL orthopedist who has been with me for years, and whatever's wrong, he can fix it, or find someone else who can. He's young, cute as the Dickens, smart as they come, and only three minutes away by bicycle!!!
