    So right now, my cat is under my right arm. And she is not a teeny cat. She's 10. And very bossy. And on a diet.

    I am right handed. So when I need to type on my PC or study, it will take longer because she uses me as a heater. Any advice on how to compromise with my cat? She also does this to my mom with her gamer laptop when she plays minecraft. Also, she likes my bathroom foam mat because it cushions to her weight.

    Give up. There is no compromising. As the cat-slave, you can only obey.

    Dependent on how you want to go about it, there are multiple ways.

    For mine, we have a small cat bed on the desk, admittedly a sheet of paper works just as well.

    You can also actively discourage the cat from being on your desk. E.g. double sided sticky tape on the edge of your desk.

    If you want that she move from your arm just open a video of kitten making meow noise or a video with angry cat.
    Another solution is to ak someone to call her.
    she will wake up to find them or to hide.
    This method don't make them angry against you.

    Ps: Don't use it often

    it depends on the reason the cat's being so close. if the cat just wants to be near you, setting up a cat tower for it to be on will give it a perch that lets it watch you from above. if it wants to feel included, you could try setting up a

    next to you. sometimes it doesn't even have to be quite so elaborate. just throwing a random box next to your desk might be enough, so long as the cat "fits". the third reason might be that it just wants attention. taking a little time to move to floor and brush it or playing with some toys can give the cat the attention it wants, and once its tired, hopefully it'll go find a nice place to relax that isn't in the way.

    If you want your cat out of your hair, try this.



    Though it was originally for kids.
