It’s a Cat’s Trophy

The hubbinator came home the other day to a horrible smell. Seems one cat caught something and shared it with the other four. Little piles of throw-up everywhere (in assorted colors, too).

After cleaning up the mess, opening the windows to air out the house, and checking to make certain all kitties were still alive, he sat down at the computer.

And realized the keyboard didn’t work.

Because there was vomit on it. He cleaned it off, took out the batteries, then tried again. Alas, the cats’ have claimed another trophy. My Mac keyboard.:(

When I arrived home, he broke the news. I thought I could just replace it with the one from my iPad (they are the same) but realized there would be multiple steps involved and decided instead to remove the wired one from the PC and plug it into the Mac.

It worked. Sort of. 

There were no shortcuts available for copy and pasting, as well as others.

But the biggest issue was the touch of the keys. I wasn’t typing on PC keyboard; l was pounding on it. And to make matters worse, I type by touch and the different spacing threw off my mojo and tanked my productivity. 

So instead of ordering a $100 replacement from Apple, I ordered a knock-off brand from amazon for $15. Still not the same but the shortcuts are there and the spacing of the keys is the same. 

It works for now.

Until next time!
