I've tried other non-kitten mouse pads but have always been disappointed. As soon as I got this new kitten mouse pad hooked up (assembly was super easy) I immediately noticed my mouse and computer were working faster and better. I was able to stream 4 episodes of Ellen AT THE SAME TIME! I'm sure it was the kittens!The only problem is that I keep getting distracted by their cuteness and sometimes forget to do work for up to 3 hours at a time because I'm just sitting there staring at those little cuties.

I currently have 3 of the Alsop Naturesmart Mouse Pads with different animal pictures. I love the various pictures and never tire looking at them. Best of all, the surface has always worked extremely well for my mouse movement. They also last a long time as I used one for over 6 years and replaced it only because it became kinda messed up by spilling stuff on it (not worn out). They are washable, but some stains don't come out. I've never used a better mouse pad.
