Of Cats and Mice

It is a well-known fact that cats just love typewriters. One irritating factor, however, keeps puzzling typewriter and computer science. As my friend Perfesser Bear so aptly put it: "Most American-sold typewriters never came with their own cat; you had to supply your own. I have no idea why they replaced it with the mouse after the switch to computers."
Any suggestions?

  3. I have seen some typebars jammed up from where my cat laid himself on the machine. I assume writers just have to have a cat...
