My cat walked across my keyboard and now all my letters type as numbers, how do I fix this?

I’ve tried to restart and even shut down but nothing works. I have a Sony VAIO laptop. My entire keyboard has changed.

Pawsense.

‘Course, if you’re unlucky enough to be in this situation, then Pawsense might not be the right thing for you.

What if your cat had magical powers, and could change your keyboard layout just by walking on it.

Edit: pawsense is awesome, but I’ll bet there’s a free alternative out there.

@robmandu: At first, I thought that was a joke. But that actually looks like it could be really useful for cat owners. There must be something nice about the feeling of keys on their paws, because I know so many people who have cats that do that.

In other news, I think I’m going to have to find ways to incorporate the phrase CAT-LIKE TYPING DETECTED into day-by-day life.

My cat must have decided that the keyboard looks like a nice place to lie down. She seems to think that of my face, too.
