Not if you train the kitten to operate your computer based music server.

Realistically it'll be books, BBC audio/drama CDs and one or two Blu-rays / DVDs.

But I've been told that you can get an iPad game called "Catsgame" which the kittens can play. Smile

RE: What Christmas Present are you hoping for in 2013

I've been dropping hints about wanting some kind of slide scanner, either a dedicated scanner or a flatbed with a transparency head. Epson V500 would do. I doubt i'll get it though. Last year was my year for the expensive present (Beatles remastered on vinyl), this year was hers (bought her an iPad).

Isn't the iPad meant to be a surprise for a few more weeks yet?
