Picture of Keyboard Cat
No, not THAT keyboard cat, silly. There's a new keyboard cat in town... 

The the geeky lovechild of keyboard cat and long cat. Oh yeah, this cat has nerd to spare...

Is your desk not up to your nerd standards? Do you have lolcats on your screen but not on your desk? Incidentally, do your wrists sometimes get tired? No more I say! Down with cat-less keyboards and limp wrists. We're going to make ourselves a keyboard cat wrist rest!

(P.S. - Don't know what keyboard cat and/or longcat are? Check out http://knowyourmeme.com/ - and welcome to the internet)

Step 1: The supplies

Picture of The supplies
So, we’re going to make the geekiest wrist rest your desk has ever seen, in a few easy steps. It’s comfy enough for any computer, and dorky enough for lolcat lovers, meme-followers, and nerds of all flavor. The kitty rest we’re going to make is like longcat's long-lost cousin or the nerdy programmer sibling of keyboard cat.

We’ll need:
-about half a yard or so of fabric
-matching thread
-scissors & pins
-a big ol’ bag of rice.

If you decide you want to go the ol’ fashioned way like me and hand embroider, you’ll also need floss, a needle, and an embroidery hoop.

How long did it take you?
This is very misleading. When I saw the title, I thought we had to use actual cats. When I actually took my cat and put it on the keyboard, he broke my keyboard. You're lucky I'm broke and can't afford a lawyer. Or else you would be SO sued right now, like legit. Seriously. I mean it. For realsies. Naw dip.

WOW those are sooooo adorable i wish you could order them awww ♥♥♥ them
Awesome! I can't wait to make one. However, I don't know about using rice to stuff it with. I can imagine the Keyb Cat getting covered in sweat and dirt over time. Except you can't really throw a plush filled with rice in the washing machine can you! :p He might come out very soggy and swollen. I want to make one, I just have to find something that can replace the rice...
ignore my last post :p the rice feels so comfy! Thanks for this 'ible! It was so fun to make and I learned a lot about sewing lol

Be careful not to let your keyboard cat get near your mouse!
henrey in side lol i bet your neme is henrey
henry, actually. it was intentionally misspelled by my friend, who drew that, to show incompetence.
you could use the tiny styrophome balls in bean bags.
it will be alot more comfy and portable because you will be able to fold it better and it will be lighter

Very nice!!! I'd use something else rather then rice, a mouse could attack your cat and make a home in it.

it looks much more comfortable that the ones at sale and it reminds me the dog of dilbert
Looks like you've made a bit of an impact, I was reading this project earlier and then someone emailed this link...


Well done, and thanks for sharing!
FINALLY!!! just what i needed!!!! my wrist feel like they are gonna fall off whenever i am typing up a paper or doing an outline. it's also affordable. those gel things go for like 25 bucks.

this one i can make using household materials.

Cheap was right! The fabric was actually a tea towel I already had and the bag o' rice... well, if you don' use it all, you can just eat it!
