We have been trying a new tactic

with Oribel. Seeing as she is a cat and all, she likes helping with computer stuff hogging the keyboard when one of us wants to use it. In keeping with her being a cat, she also really, really likes boxes, so we have given her a new box to hang out in.
So far it seems to be working out quite well. Occasionally we have to do a bit of  "stay in your box training" by scratching her ears or chin, but it is better than having her reconfigure the computer screen by stepping on the proper set of keys all at the same time.

An added bonus is that she doesn't mind having her box picked up and moved while she is still in it. That means we can set the two of them right on top of the keyboard when we are done using it, still keeping it safe while she thinks she is getting away with something. (I think she might be beginning to notice that she isn't getting as much heat from the keyboard as she used to.)

Cute. Glad you found a solution everyone can live with!

that's a small box for that cat - but if she likes it... and does the box on the keyboard have damage potential?
