We've had incidents like that.  Our little female tabby (real name:
Breakfast, common name: Widdle) has a thing for chasing mouse cursors,
and climbing over my SGI Indigo to get to the window.  I tend to frown
on this behaviour, as we're 25 floors into the sky.

The larger, older cat (real name: Smack, common name: Lardass) is just
too cool for all this hopping around.  He sits on the couch, and watches
from afar what's going on in the computer room.  I prefer his approach.

Either which, I hate the weekly removal of cat hair from the insides of
machines.  I read a great quote about Indigos acting as vacuum
cleaners.  I thought of placing mine on a cat or two.

I thought about doing this with enclosed clear plastic tubing.  Figured
it would be pretty nifty.  Thing is, our apartment isn't big enough to
make it interesting. :)
