“Here is my silly kitten Greg Brady [Here’s a story, about a cat named Brady. -Ed] occupying my laptop on my work at home day. He is always very helpful, as you can see! He’s a one-year-old ball of crazy.” Thanks to Morgen D.

Pinky Boy IN the computer, from Katherine.

“This is Jay the Papillon getting some assistance from his man-slave to surf the Web for cute toy poodles. He’d do it himself except for…the lack of thumbs. His tongue drags on the keyboard and makes it more frustrating to type things in Google search.” [Well, yeah, problem. -Ed] -Christina V.

“Dear Masters of the Cute, [Nice Suck-Up Touch! -Ed] I know I’m late for the assignment and all, but my galga* Alba helping me finish my master thesis is too cute not to be shared. Hope you enjoy the nosicle on the ‘pooter!” -Janne V.

*JANNE UPDATE!: “Lecturing modus on: A galga is a female galgo which is a spanish greyhound, they are the ancestors of all other breeds of sighthounds. Alba was rescued, as galgos are used for hunting in Spain and are very often mistreated, abandoned and killed, especially at the end of the hunting season. They are the most laid back and lovely pets you could imagine!” [Quiz on this later -Ed]

Selvi P.: “This is Mavi, short for Maverick. We kitten-sat for his owners while they were on vacation and needless to say, we were heartbroken when they came back.”

“This is Ciccio. Sometimes he gets a little obsessed trying to peek at what I’m doing on the computer.” -Sent by Mariana A., photo by Jade.

Also from Mariana A., “This is Amy. When she came to us a year ago she was malnourished and a lot smaller for her age. Since she was so cold all the time, her favorite spot was on top of our overheating computer. Needless to say, she grew very quickly and is doing much better now!”

Maui The Kitteh from Gavin B.

“Our dogs are being greedy keyboard hogs. They love to sit on our laps while we use our computers, but sometimes they use the keyboard as a a pillow. The white one is Potato and the black/white one is Whistler.” Thanks to Megan for this one!

“My name is Roni C. and this is my 2 year old cat Stewart. Stewart is very happy that the NHL is back in action. This picture is of him setting his fantasy hockey team a few years ago.”

From Anita A.: “This is Vern. In the second shot, he is helping his dad David A. surf the net.”

“This is Theo on the keyboard at 2-1/2 months old, just after he came home with me from the SPCA.” From Tony Z.

“This is Penny. She occasionally likes having her picture taken, but more often will be content to open the door to our laundry closet in the middle of the night and hide behind the dryer.” -David W.

“This is Tiny, my rescue chihuahua and precious fur-baby. Thank you so much, CO, for the best, happiest website on the interwebs! Love you guys!!” Thank you, Jenn K!

Christine W.: “J. Tiberius “Tibby” Kitty taking a big stretch break from her favorite iPad game.” [J. Tiberius..sounds like our..favorite…Starship…captain. -Ed]

Katherine O. tells us: “Oz likes the computer warm from use so he can cuddle with it.”

“Our kitty, Marmie has an affinity for Macs it seems, but not to worry, she only needs a little “byte.” -Stephanie S.

Angela C.’s kitteh loves Bruce Willis.

Mr. Giles is his name, sleeping is his game. From Alison S.

Dolores S. sent in this photo of a snoozin’ Mr. H.
