self-portrait (disturbed)

when I tried to make a selfportrait in a mirror (presenting my wife and me), we've been disturbed by a sudden cat patrol. Yes, they know where the action is! Once, when I tried to pay a bill of 42.39 $ via online-banking (for a SYMANTEC security package), the patrol cat tipped with one paw over my PC-keyboard and deleted (don't ask me how) the decimal point. So I payed the lump sum of 4239.00 $$. I noticed that a day later. We do not have so much money. Our homebank gave a credit. In the meantime the money escaped from Germany to the Netherlands, then to Belgium, then vanished in Ireland. It took half a year of writing letters and begging via phone-calls till the money came back: very much thanks to the support of my daughter Pia, she is a banker in Munich. I'm getting old (and our cat is too fast for my brain...)


comment by "bihua": I have installed "catnip" on my Mac - it detects cat-like typing and blocks the keyboard until I write "human" - that helps

comment by fratella: sure that it wasn't a black cat?

comment by penguino27: that is a talented cat to know how to take out the decimal point from an online transaction. Bettered password protect your computer good so he doesn't start ordering new kitty treats online and things don't start showing up at your door.
