Why do cats like to sit on newspaper?

It never fails, as soon as I pick up the newspaper, my older cat, Mollie, jumps up and sits on it, usually right on the story that I’m reading. What’s the logical reason for this? Actually, the only reason that I could think of is that the newspaper is taking my attention away from her. She also will sit on my computer keyboard because she doesn’t like me to work. Another reason could be that maybe she’s bored. Cats require attention just as dogs do, even though they may not make it so obvious. Mollie will continue to sit until I gently move her off and promise her that her playtime is coming as soon as I finish reading about all of the awful news that’s going on in the world. Actually, the hell with the news! I’d rather get out Molly’s cat toys and play with her instead. Remember, your pets count!
