Computer and Cats. Jealous of You cats to your computer?

Recently got a cat...
Noticed, whenever I sit down at the computer at home my cat is starting to take an interest. Climbs, pushes head, asking to be stroked, trying to get between me and the keyboard...

In principle I understand that if you ignore something it will go away. BUT have you noticed similar behavior in their Pets?

Ignore is not necessary.
Otherwise why bother to have a cat? This is not a toy, she's alive, she has intelligence, feelings.
If ignored, it will attract the attention of more and more brutal methods, up to damage.
Like all living things, affection and attention. The younger, the more.
If there is not enough time to play with her and chat, and their Affairs too it is possible to do safely.
And because of the computer is distracted — Pat, a kind word to say. And you too would be useful :)
Don't read bedtime stories, and professionals
I also have a cat and I love him... but the cats only reflexes sorry, "wit", "intelligence" no.
Cats are social animals, but again at the level of reflexes
About "jealousy" cats, etc. is a fairy tale - alta_Cormier31 commented on October 3rd 19 at 03:59
Anyone with minimal powers of observation to see the presence of cat intelligence.
The ability to reason, to classify, to make decisions, to Express emotions, affection, come from previous experience to new situations. Cat understands what "no" and that if you really want it, if nobody sees... If it's not intelligence, then what? Reflexes is in flies and worms.
From the more intellectual of people characterized only by brain power, well, and as a result can't overcome some instincts. Although, I met people who can't overcome instincts...

astounding ignorance, especially for Habra. and judging by the pros in the initial comments, you are not alone in their errors. just a gesture... - eugene.Kuval commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:05

Intelligence in cats is! - Eldred.Reynolds commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:08
the "mind", "intelligence" no

Apparently your cat the fridge was not opened (as they would not be back)... and someone else too - Chesley_Ols commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:11
The most basic intelligence found even at the turtles. - devonte commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:14
With the tortoise it is impossible to communicate. And facial expressions it does not. - Wilton29 commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:17
Of course, it is easier not to notice none of this in a pet, consider the furniture, then there is less responsibility and worries-anxieties. Alive toy, eats sleeps and shits. - Wilton29 commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:20
A striking conceit, to consider an opinion different from your own — ignorance. - carmen_Waelchi1 commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:23
there can be no personal opinion, there is something with which I agree a science, and what does not agree. according to science, cats have no intelligence, only reflexes. everyone is free to err as he pleases, of course, it just surprises me the presence of so Humanities the Humanities on Habre =) - eugene.Kuval commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:26
I would in your place authorities are less trusted. What kind of "science" convinced you so thoroughly? If in a beautiful book with a hard glossy cover of something written, it does not mean that it is true.
You can argue about the presence of life on distant planets or in the depths of the ocean. But what is the point to put the blame on some professionals, when you can just take and hold the observations yourself?
So here are all nods to a specialist of Aristotle, and no one bothered to count how many actually have the legs of a fly. He wrote that four — so four.
I believe more observation. - Wilton29 commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:29
"I'm in your observations no longer believe" it scares =)
I really do not wish from a man who believes in his observations more than science to save my life =) - eugene.Kuval commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:32
And at what here a life? Unless you are a cat.
I believe in science, just not blindly. The sooner you realize that irrefutable, there is no authority, so you'll have an easier time, believe me... - Wilton29 commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:35
maxout, in order not to be unfounded, can give a definition of intelligence and to specify the resources where it is written that cats have no intelligence? - asia10 commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:38
And then, I suppose you are in the laboratories was not present and the test was not performed. Ie you "believe in science" on the basis of what I read on the Internet and on TV looked. So think about what is better — to believe the Internet and TV or their observations.
But since you only trust what people in white coats say — here is a link:

Scientists have found that rats laugh from the tickling. And it is rats.

Cat intelligence: "As mammals, cats have sophisticated brains, and are generally considered to be highly intelligent creatures. Their learning capacity is large."

Also read what reflex. From the point of view of the simplest biological reactions complex behavior of cats is impossible to explain. - Wilton29 commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:41

It's not jealousy. Just wants attention.
The situation is standard, but depends on the cat — not all do.
Offtopic: this is the best question I've seen on habré ^^ - alta_Cormier31 commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:01
Just wants attention

Or eat.
Or to play (that, too, but not that). - Wilton29 commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:04

My cat from childhood, the habit of sleeping between the monitor and keyboard. Considering that he appeared healthy this carcass, there is a suspicion that it is a cactus :D

My cat plays with me in the third heroes. Beats the creatures paw. As has slightly (more touches) and the clutches not releasing, I think it is a nice addition.

Do you live alone? If not, you can "dump" tiskanje cats on other family members while You are at the computer.

I have two cats, I love them, but taught that in my room they are allowed: since I have some Allergy to them, so that my room was the territory of the purity — without their fur and saliva. In this room many wires that they are a child I loved to tear ('ll be happy to new headphones, and I go for a new one). Even if the door is open, cats walk up to her and run into an invisible wall, do not go further.

If they need attention from me, they call me in voice, sitting near the door, I get out, carefully squeeze — giving to understand that I love them, let go, and they go about their business, and I'm his.

But my katauskas 3 years, it was not small, their two can with each other play. If Your cat is still small, you'll have to make a sacrifice in order not to deprive her. If you can afford it, get her a friend (although there is also some nuances, they can become enemies).

Before trying my paw to turn off the power strip when she wanted my attention.
Partly because I bought a UPS. It was a pity to be punished for it.
October 3rd 19 at 04:08
Cats one will not jealous. They are just checking, not weakened if you, so that you might finally be able to kill and eat.

If the text mentioned the computer — hence the question about IT!
Yeah. But if the hub is "the closet", it is welcome and discussion of architectural solutions for storage-hungry, crazy stuff! - alta_Cormier31 commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:13

I once had a cat, she also always climbed on my knees between me and the keyboard, if you push the shelf with the keyboard was under it and from under it was watching me. Especially cool in the winter — I popechitel, stroked, hands warmed, and then to print xD

To the computer the cat is quiet. But when I go with the iPads... sometimes I think he thinks he is such a weird flat cat :) Almost always comes in and tries to squeeze between me and the screen. IPad removed, and then the File swells with pride — frrr, drove concurrent, Ah I'm done!

And my girl does that )
Phahaha. - alta_Cormier31 commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:19
Girls too need attention and affection. And Yes, too, possess intelligence. - Wilton29 commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:22
October 3rd 19 at 04:18
My this usually means that either wants affection or corny to eat, the second is more:)

I have a cat and a cat breed Maine Coon... cat never did this, but when I was a kid overturned a glass of water on the table pataas of them to drink, the cat behaves exactly as described by the author, if pressed, and to remove from the table is enough somewhere on half an hour of freedom then maybe come back for the next part of affection :)
as a cat owner with 20 years of experience I can say that cats have and intellect and character in everyone, and feelings and very well developed intuition...

I loved the hamster on the keyboard to run when I let him walk around the table. Very much he liked to print ;)
Sometimes showed interest in the cables, especially twisted pair.
We have children let the puppy to print something on the laptop. The keyboard had to be replaced. - alta_Cormier31 commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:25
Wow, tried to bite? My hamster is so homely that even walk around the bed, go to sleep, it is near the face layed, I'm going to bed and even if he will Wake, I will have to wait until the owner wakes up (: good pet. - Wilton29 commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:28
Well that is near the face, and then you can inadvertently strangle - eugene.Kuval commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:31
