The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

The first true computer mouse

It's made from an actual mouse.

Perhaps I could get this with a companion piece. The cat and mouse combo featuring the mouse as described and a keyboard with a cat component where the cat is laying on its side with the keyboard displayed as it's underbelly. Given the layout of many a cat of past it could even have a natural curve to it. Although unusual it would be a nice way to honor the memories of dear old heathcliff.

Joe, it would also be realistic in occupying the exact spot on a computer desk that cats love most.

Provided you put your cat keyboard on top of another keyboard, of course.

Hmmm... a stuffed mouse for a mouse and a dead cat for a keyboard... don't call me. I'll call you. But probably not until next century... However, I do like the fact that they're dead. Beats the heck out of my armadillo door stop that keeps wandering off in search of food...
