So I was sat at the laptop when Alfie jumps up and demanded attention, I give him a pet and a cuddle and ask him nicely to move, he sticks his head in closer and gives me the more attention or else look.
Silly mum ignores Alfie hoping he will give up and go and lie down for a snooze. Well, said Alfie, if you don't want me then I will see too it that you can't have the laptop.
He is now computer literate and can adjust the screen brightness, adjust the volume for you, take screenshots (which I cancel), turn airplane mode on and off. His best trick so far, he can shut the laptop down. Upshot of this is that mum will not ignore Alfie again! lol
