Woman shares genius hack to keep cat off her laptop after discovering it online

After growing tired of her pet cats trying to sit on her laptop’s keyboard, one woman did some research and found a way to keep them distracted – and now she’s shared the genius hack that could transform your life.

If you’ve ever owned cats, you’ll know that as soon as you sit at the computer they will instantly rush to you and try to get as close to the keyboard as possible.

This can be hugely troublesome if you’ve got online shopping to do, have an important email to write, or maybe have a Zoom interview coming up.

But now, thanks to TikTok user @winifredandyara, you too can keep your pet cats distracted – by buying them a little computer of their own.

She said: “So I read on the internet that cats get on your laptop because they’re mirroring you so if you get them their own laptop they’ll leave you alone.”

She then zooms in on a video of her cat and says: “And look this little businessman!”

The video was shared with her 42k followers, and in just three days it has had over 850k likes.

One user wrote: “So you’re saying my cat was just trying to copycat me?”

A second said: “He’s probably on OnlyCats.”

And another added: “My cats are very jealous, now I have to get one for each of them.”

Meanwhile, another woman has shared a dishwasher trick that’ll change the way you wash your glasses.

She discovered a little-known switch that makes the upper part of your dishwasher more usable, although many said that the ‘hack’ was probably written in the machine’s instruction manual.
