Gigglebit is Siliconrepublic’s daily dose of the funny and fantastic in science and tech, to help start your day on a lighter note.

With Gigglebit, we turn the spotlight on humorous and/or amazing content about science and tech, because sometimes the lighter side should be taken seriously, too.

Today, we have a suggestion to help you co-exist with your cat when working (or playing) on your computer at home.

Anyone with experience living with a cat will know how much they love to interfere with computers and laptops, poking their heads in front of the display, attacking your fingers as you type and snuggling up to the computer’s warmth as it heats up from use.

Kitty’s presence at your desk is practically a fact of life, so you might as well make the divil comfortable while also conceding to your cat’s dominance over your home life. Accept your feline ruler and all will be well.
