Does stretching out a leg while "asleep" and pushing the ereader onto the floor fit into option #2?

I picked "Not only lies on my eReader but also uses the touch screen without my permission" and she really does! With the Sony touch screen her tail has turned the pages many times.

Yeah, I have a Sony too. This is an issue. I swear at this point they are doing it on purpose.

They are doing it on purpose - it's their way of saying you need to put the ereader down and pay attention to me.

I always make sure to cover the front of my 650 before leaving it to keep Hillary off it. She manages to turn on all kinds of features on my laptop that I personally have no idea how to do.

In the early days she'd let me rest my Hanlin on her while I read, but now she prefers to sleep on my legs. This means I can't change position while I read without disburbing her. I find myself going to make coffee far too often just so I can stretch properly.

I voted #3. Sometimes my cat changes the page with her ears. I have to always remember to put my ereader on the table and not leave it on the sofa or ottoman, even if it's just for a moment to get a drink or answer the phone.

I would pick "other". Our cats will sit or stand on whatever they feel like. I have a pic of one of our cats sitting on my Kindle (with the pic of the birds - which was cute), right after I set it down on my dresser. They will also sit on or in front of a paper book, regardless if it is being read or not.
Not only do the sit on our reading materials, they walk in front of our tv, in front of our monitors, or on our keyboards, as well.

None of the above.

I actually have a friend in Cats.

As far as real cats, my daughter's cat has adopted me and occasionally let's me read, but only after she's done.

The Siamese is the worst offender here. He has to be in the middle of whatever I'm doing. If that whatever I'm doing happens to be reading on either the Sony or the iPad, then he's changing pages on me, and generally just getting in the way until I pay attention to him.
