Plaatsen om een kat te zoeken:
Achter de boeken op de boekenplank.
In iedere kast die op een te klein kiertje staat.
Boven op iets heel hoogs.
Onder iets dat te laag is om onder te kruipen.
In de piano.

Seriously. Think NOT adding keypad is the right thing to do. Having a keypad and need to click the keys with your mouse…. That's a really awkward user experience. Can't figure out why people want that. Just press the Real numeric keys on your keyboard, even using the upper numeric row on my laptop is a good user expressions. Or buy one of these nice numeric keypad with USB. Plug it in and start dialing :-)
