Cat Desperate to Upgrade From Flip-Phone
by Anna Washenko, FluffPo Correspondent
For years, Whiskers the cat has resisted the siren song of the smartphone. Insisting that she doesn’t need to always be on Facebook and that keypad texting really isn’t so bad, she has held on to her first ever cell phone.
Roommate Josh Myles said the reason for Whiskers’ hesitance to upgrade might be the nature of modern smartphone interfaces.
"She tried to play with a music app on my tablet, once, but it turns out claws are pretty unreliable for a touch interface," he explained. "Plus, I mean, the RAZR was a pretty awesome cell phone when she got it. But that was 2005. It’s time to let go."
Myles thinks Whiskers may finally be pining for an upgrade, however.
"I walked by her on the computer last night and she was looking at the iPhone 6 website, purring," he said.
