Great video of a cat "fixing" the printer.

I love it ;)

Serious related question now - my Canon Pixma ip5000 has recently started chewing paper when I ask it to duplex print. Anyone any idea how to clean the paper path on these as there doesn't seem to be any obvious way to disassemble the printer.

I am not sure about the printer you have, but for my HP I would have to use a cleaning kit like this:

And if I remember correctly, it's a single use cleaner and costs about $20

Actually, I would have thought that since animals work by instinct and so-called humans are supposedly (mostly) non-instinctual(?!) that the term insane can really only be applied to humans.

In fact, AFAIAC the whole planet would probably be better off if animals were running it   :P

Then again, some countries are already being run by animals  :huh:

Great little video. Not sure how they got the cat to do it, but it sure is funny. My sister got a kick out of it, too. :)

how many times do i have to warn you people!

you have to scour your posts with a fine tooth comb -- go over every word multiple times -- read it aloud to yourself -- get your friends to proof read it, and only then is it safe to post and have even a slim chance of escaping Chris' pun processing machine.

I found out a few weeks ago that my English 102 teacher absolutely hates puns. :o How can you like English enough to spend your life teaching it but not enjoy playing around with the words? :huh:

Doesn't enjoy golf, perhaps?

It would take some doing to find an English word or phrase you can't pun! Or Double Entendre for that matter...  ;D

Emergency computer repair job at the top of the slide -- send the system administrator cat on the double!

I agree with commenter Ben B.:
Unfortunately, there are three clips in there, two of which are repeated over and over. They’re plenty cute, all right, but there is only about fifteen actual seconds of video. Cats: megacute. Clipmaker: Lame.

Too bad the cat wasn't doing all that spastic pounding on a keyboard.

If he did, he'd probably have written a new web browser. ;)

Cats are normally smart enough to know when to give up! Maybe they were having fun... ;D
