My PC suddenly developed a ~1 second beep, which I had to silence by
muting the sound.
I Googled 'one second beep, got really worried !

I suddenly realized that the sound is that what occurs when one of my
two cats walks on the Keyboard.

GER-ORF there I says!
No I won't says the cat (She's a big B&W cat).

Anyway, I recovered my Keyboard and all is now well.

So it wasn't that cats were walking on the keyboard every second, and you
didn't notice. :)

I once got a 24-hour ban from FB due to a post that contained nothing more than "io" repeated a few hundred times.

They let me back in when I explained Bonnie had done that sitting on the keyboard whilst I made my dinner

Years ago, my computer kept changing the size of the font even though I
had not made any changes. Finally, I realized that my cat Holly(RB) was
training me how to do it!

Maybe Holly was just trying to be creative. :)

Fortunately, neither Persia (RB) nor Buffy has shown much interest in
walking on my keyboards. Then again, I have a slide out keyboard tray
built into my desk. It's tucked underneath when not in use.

Neither one ever showed interest in cables or cords, either. Hmmmm.

I have the same type f slide out keyboard tray as you have. Holly used
to sit beside my keyboard while I was typing, and she somehow would hit
the 2 keys on the side of the keyboard that would change the font. Yes,
she was a creative little girl. On one occasion, she even turned on my
self-cleaning oven. It requires 2 specific buttons to turn it on, and
Holly did it by simply walking on the controls. Unfortunately, that
also ruined the slide-out trays by destroying finish on the trays. Ouch!!
