My husband lets Trillian and Dr. Jones visit the studio for "field trips" away from the main part of the house. That's all well and good, except that Trillian gets a little overly enthusiastic about saying "hi" when I'm at my desk, which has resulted in at least once instance of a file on my desktop being renamed something along the lines of: s;lkjdffd;ljk.
However, it turns out there's a company that has it all thought out when it comes to computer backup needs, including cat-related ones.
SurDoc offers cloud storage for file protection, online access and sharing. They've given me a free 30GB account in exchange for writing this post and you can get one as well using the code CATPROOF. (Obviously you're welcome to get an account to use even if you're in no danger of cat-initiated data loss.)
They do automatic backups for PCs, and Mac users can do easy manual backups of vital information.
I don't know about you, but I'm pretty terrible about backups in general, even though I've been a computer user for decades and should know better.
Think about all of the cat photos I'd lose if something happened!
