WARNING: CAT-LIKE SCRIBING DETECTED
 
2013-04-03 10:54:30 AM  
I bet you can find the exact place where the scribe was when it happened:

"...upon which thye very crown would lie in resplendent fort--GAHHH! THOU FOUL AND VAIN CREATURE, CURSE THEE! OFF TO A THORNED THICKET, FURRY DEMON!"

Yikes! A Mental Floss link!

Clicking to RTFA will lead to more clicking and more clicking, and BOOM! You've wasted half the day...

Left my laptop open one day and the cat slept on the keyboard. It managed to open about a thousand Firefox "help" tabs, rotate the screen and turn on the magnifier...

I think this article is from 1445, too.
We have seen this one before, folks.

Someone posted this on the Historical Novel Society facebook page a couple of weeks ago. A nice little look into the past. I have a book on Roman building materials and there is a page that showed roof tiles with cat tracks going across them. The cat had apparently walked over them as the clay lay drying in the sun.

That was all part of your cats plot to annoy you.

My cat, back when I played WoW, would run across my keyboard in the middle of a fight and try to kill me.

As much as I like to believe this is real, I find it hard to believe that this is real.

My boyfriend keeps leaving his laptop open and on, and then wonders why there are a million tabs open. Our cat hasn't quite learned how to flip the screen but does know how to pose questions to Apple's version of Microsoft Help.

I don't think kitty is doing it to be a dick. He only does it when the room is cold and the heater is off.

My cat does it to be a dick. She also steals my covers when I am trying to sleep. Types random strings while I am working on school projects when I am not at my computer. She loves to block the view of the TV and computer screen too.

It's totally real. This image has been making the rounds for the last 6 months or so; and has been confirmed that the cat paws were on the pages when it was written 500 or so years ago.

Then this is really cool.  I'm not one to usually believe EVERYTHING is photoshopped, like the moon landing, but this one just seemed too easy to fake given the internet's obsession with cats.
