How do Writers with Cats Write?

I'm trying hard, working on chapter 17 of my outline, visualizing the land around Angel Fire, New Mexico and doing my best to stay inside the head of Joe, but there's this kitten perched on my foot, trying her best to undo the double knotted shoe-laces. I've knocked her off too many times to count, but she keeps coming back.

Which brings me to my question. How to other writers cope with kittens? I've got two main options. Make her go away -- lock her up in the bathroom. Or, go away myself -- go out to the RV and work in the heat of the day. Neither is pleasant.

Anybody out there need a really cute kitten? Hey, I'm serious.
