Sleep, work, sleep, work

How can I possibly get a good day's work in with a big lump of a sleepy black cat on my desk?

I was up at 3 am, now it's 9 am and I should be working on... some stuff that seems wildly important today, but next year I will have forgotten why it was important at all. But, anyway, how can I work with the sound of soft cat breathing 2 feet away??

If I move him, he'll just come back.

If I move myself, he'll just move near me.

If I insist that he leave (keep putting him down off the desk) then he'll just pounce back up until I get tired of lifting him down.

The cat is being tyrannical.
