Click with the right mouse button and see if you get what you expected.

If so the mouse buttons have been reversed. You con undo the change in the Mouse setting in Control Panel.

alunchilds,

Maybe he'll fix it on his return trip...

Sorry, couldn't resist. We have cats too, but obviously not as talented as yours.
