I'm laying on the laptop

Hey guys. Y’know what I realized the other day? It’s been a long time since I’ve done an Easy E’s Tip of the Day. In fact, when I checked, it’s been over 2 years since I’ve done one. Jeez! Some of you new visitors may not even know what an Easy E Tip of the Day is. Well, it’s pretty much what you might think it is…I share a tip, thought or some words of wisdom with all of you to help make life better.

Today’s tip is for all of you out there whose humans spend way too much time on the computer or laptop checking Facebook or Twitter or Instagram or Snapchat or email or whatever…and they don’t spend enough time with YOU. Here’s how you stop them from surfing the web. Lay on the keyboard! Just like I’m doing here. And then they will have to pay more attention to you. You’re more interesting than some picture of a silly cat on Instagram, right? You’re the real thing!

Oh yeah…I’m using this as my selfie for today. I don’t wanna move and take a real selfie because that will just give the mom the opportunity to check her Facebook timeline. No Facebook for you, mom!

Stay tuned for more Easy E’s Tips of the Day! And I’ll try not to wait so long to do another one.

  1. We luff how you fit just purrfectly.

  2. Ernie, No harm intended, but I thought you were, well, sorta bigger than that, if you know what I mean. Ahem.

  3. Well done Ernie. We sure are going to give that a try and see if we can get Mom’s attention. I bet we can. You all have a great day.

  4. My Puck must feel neglected because he always does that.

  5. Thank U furrrr leaving this thoughtful message. We took it to heart. Just now our human was ON THE COMPUTER writing about US when WE wanted to play. So okay we went into her meowing and even staged a CAT FIGHT to get her attention. All because YOU inspired us!

    Well it all worked out and she FINALLY stopped that wierdo “blogging stuff” and played fishing pole games with US!!! Thank you again.

    PS: Hoping you guys will be in our Catriotic Slideshow. Deadline this week.

  6. Ernie, this is the most purrfect tip! I do this all the time, but I can’t seem to get the other kitties around here to understand how important it is to stop the humans from staring at that computer screen like fools. Maybe they’ll listen to your tip, though. Purrs! -Thimble

  7. Wooooo Hooo Ernie you are handsome and brilliant
    Hugs Madi your bfff

  8. Oh Wise and Knowledgeable Ernie! We bow to your zen nature

  9. Oh, boy, that is the BEST tip of the day I have ever had. Unfortunately my maman’s keyboard is in ROME…..
    But I think I know a kitty there who might be tempted to lie on the keyboard for a price, haha.
    Or that bad doggy down the street might aid and abet. Will get on that right now….

  10. Great selfie and great tip.

  11. good job Ernie!! Thankfully my Mom is rarely on Facebook, she finds it to be extremely irritating MOL. She is mostly in email……………….Facebook is a HUGE time suck!

  12. You are one smart kitty, Ernie!

  13. That’s a very valuable tip, Ernie. I keep that in mind! Oh, and your Selfie looks super cute and wise 😉 Pawkisses for a Happy Easy Sunday 🙂 <3

  17. You are so right, Emie! Humans are obsessed with “social media.” But at least, we kitties are what makes social media worthwhile. I lay on mom’s computer, too a lot. It is a way to optimize it’s performance and receive pets at the same time! It’s a good Easy. Mew Mew!

  18. Maggie does this to me! *augh* She makes up stuff as she goes! I cannot trust her to make sense. xo

  19. Great idea………I lie on Mom’s keyboard on the PC too – has the same effect – all computer activity grinds to a halt and it’s all about ME!

    Hugs, Teddy

  20. That is a great tip, Ernie! Binga used to do this all the time, but now she just lies on my human’s desk chair.

  21. That keyboard is Ernie shaped!! Purrfect!! Excellent selfie, bro!

  22. Excellent selfie, Ernie, alas I tried that and believe that or not, peep got out a spare keyboard, to save me from moving… wasnt that sweet! Well you can but try. MOL

  23. Good advice and tactic.

  24. mol! great tip, Ernie! and selfie too 🙂

  25. Ernie, this is a great idea. IMO, the lady is on social media too much! You were wise to take your selfie there. Goodness know, you give moms an inch, they’ll take a mile.

  26. You covered it quite nicely Ernie!!!

  27. Great tip, Ernie ! You can also walk on the keyboard and try to have your four paws on specific keys that make the computer shut down, or collapse : priceless ! Purrs

  28. Pawsome tip Ernie!
    Purrs Georgia,Julie and JJ

  29. Excellent tip. We appreciate the return of your wisdom.

  30. Looking good as always, Ernie. That is one of our favorite places. Keeps our bellies warm and Mom off the computer at the same time. Lily likes to sit in Mom’s lap with her paws on the track pad. That works great as well. Thank for being a faithful hopper.

  31. Thanks for the tip. We do that sometime on moms computer, but she uses her iPad most of the time now. Maybe I can lay on top of that. She definitely needs to spend as much time as we want her too paying attention to us. Then we want to be left alone.

  32. Easy Es tip is just what we new kids needed to know.
    Timmy and Teaghan

  33. You’re so wise, Ernie! Mudpie loves to get between me and the ‘puter so she agrees with you 100%!

  34. That is an excellent tip.

  35. Good tip Ernie, mum tries to get away from the puter, moving picture box and all that stuff. We have our time together, cuddles, playtime and just fun.

  36. Whoa, on one hand I need to get TW offa Facebook. On the other, she keeps the keyboard guarded like a Brink’s truck. It’s on a ddraw and the minute I jump on the desk, she slams the drawer. BTW, you look exceptionally good today, Ernie.

  37. That’s an awesome tip, Ernie. and hey, that selfie is pretty fierce, too!

  38. Great tip! We’ll have to try that!

  39. That’s a great tip, Ernie. My Mom’s on the computer all day at work so she can’t be on it all evening.

  40. What a wise kitty you are Ernie!

  41. Great tip, Ernie. We humans do spend way too much time on the computer and not enough time cuddling our cats. 🙂

  42. I always lay in the way of moms crafting!!

  44. That is a good tip. You can also hide the mouse from them. That seems to work wonders here. Mommy crawls around on the floor and plays with us while she is looking for it.

  45. MOL! You’re right…I’d never heard of Easy E Tip of the Day. And that’s a good tip to come back with. My cats will surely take note.

  46. those keyboards are the BESTEST. They have the WARMZ. ~ Maxwell

  47. I’ve got this one down Ernie. It cuts way into blogging time, but I don’t mind because it gives me lots of Mom and Me time!

  48. You know it, Ernie!

    We like to sit on those laptops, too…they are nice and warm…so we should call them lap-unders, right!?!

    You made a nice ‘puter-selfie!
