My cats walk on my keyboard all the time. They can be royal pests.

But as much damage as they can do to a document i am typing or the website i am on or even some of the computer display options.

It is not possible for them to render the computer unbootable where nothing happens when you push the power button.

that is a physical problem and it would require repair. It might be a bad mother board it might be as simple as a wire broke somewhere in the power supply. There is no real way to know without having an expert actually look at it and take it apart.
