Hello all, and good wishes.

I'm having trouble tracking something down, and it's mainly because I don't know exactly what it is blush

It's something I saw on Facebook. A chap was working on his pc, and his cat was "helping" grin

The cat was sitting on a clear perspex or acrylic sort of shelf above the keyboard, and the man was able to type without the cat walking on the keys.

I've tried every search term I can think of, but no luck!

Any ideas?

Thanks downtoearth, I tried that and couldn't see what I was looking for, but will have another look!

Did it have a tabby cat sitting on the cover phoenix?

Try transparent pet proof keyboard cover 😊 There’s loads on Amazon. Also called anti-cat covers!

Well done! Thank you so much grin

Bit more expensive than I hoped blush, but may get one for Mr P for Christmas.

Sorry, missed part of that link!]]

Puzzler61 Fri 30-Oct-20 14:11:18

Ah we all got to it ! 😸

I've just looked at the link.

How Much??? shock shock

A gentle shove and 'Gerroff' costs nothing. grin

Many thanks to all, appreciated!

I think Minnie might have to put her paw in her pocket to contribute grin

She is the office space invader, she hero worships Mr P, even though it's muggins who washes the food bowls, deals with the litter tray etc (she won't go out if it's windy, raining or remotely inclement)

Oliver Sprout has no interest in typing, fortunately, as I might need to order a reinforced one if he did, he's a large chap!

but may get one for Mr P for Christmas.

phoenix I think it will only work for the cat..... grin

Puzzler61 Fri 30-Oct-20 15:11:59

Haha GrannyLaine . I do sometimes think a locking cover would be good to keep my My P off his phone keys!
