Got a cat? What about a keyboard? Then, you know that those fuzzy friends love to sit on them when you’re typing. Let’s stop that.

This is the Nekopochi Keyboard Cover. While I’ve seen shelves and organizers used as make-shift keyboard rests for cats as well as covers to put over your keyboard while not in use, this one is specially designed for cats to sit on while you work on the computer!

No, while you work on the computer, not your cat!


The Nekopochi website (via PC Watch) is covered with photos of cats and states, “Keyboards are not beds!” Made from acrylic plastic, the cover can support up to 10 kilograms (22 pounds), which is over twice the weight of your average shorthair.

So, I guess it can support MULTIPLE CATS??


And because it’s clear plastic, you can see what the hell you are doing, while your cat gets in your way.

It’s priced at 6,264 yen or US$52 (though, I have seen cheaper online), comes in three colors, and currently only appears to be available in Japan.
