Lying down, the weight is spread across the whole keyboard so you're
unlikely to suffer extra keypresses due to the cat. So if you're a
touch-typist that one may not be too bad (depending on how easily their fur
gets up your nose).
Now, a cat *standing* on the keyboard, between you and the monitor, and
rubbing his head against your hands, is a whole other matter.
