See, on another message board I am a member of, we call that a PEBKAC (that is the slang they use for pets in general.) It is an acronym: Problem Exists Between Keyboard and Chair.
(The term usually refers to a user error.)
I have 7 foster kittens and I've been letting them loose in the only available room, which happens to be where my computer is. Earlier today I came back into the room and was about to sit down at the computer, when one of the kittens logged me off my Windows XP profile!
