Just be glad that you have a mouse for your computer-pointing device. I have a cat, and, cats being what they be, he can be durn hard to manipulate at times. And if I don't hold him in exactly the right way, he either bites or scratches my hand.
Okay okay I admit to just having flung a little bull your way about the cat (get it, bull about the cat being a mouse?), but he really has taken to spending a lot of computer time with me. When Cuppa comes into the room, she finds it so amusingly cute the way that he raises his head to look at her: "What are you doing here in the men's den lady?"
You can see the look in the photo below, and you can also see that I really don't have a lot of space for this new-fangled pointing device.
