if you slow down your typing a bit, and press keys more deliberately, I think you will NOT see the cat
there are no user controls for this 'feature'
you might try quitting Skype, renaming your existing config.xml, and then letting Skype create a fresh one for you the next time you sign in
if this doesn't resolve the cat issue for you, you should be able to quit Skype again and re-enable the old .xml file
I got the typing kitty just now, and it went away for some random reason. I was still typing fast and sorta sloppy but she went away. Anyone know how to get her back? I tried renaming the XML file but that doesn't seem to have worked. It's also not obvious where the entry lives in the XML file.
This page helped line it up for me. I think it works for all the newest versions, too:
there are no .XML entries for either Easter Egg -- the code is embedded in the Skype.exe program
the feline one is as described in the blog, namely a cat walking across your keyboard
but the other one is actually two hands breaking a pencil

The full story is that the Skype cat was invented as a counterpart to the beloved doggie Rover of Melinda Gates. For a long time it was not recognized that this signalized the upcoming takeover of Skype by Microsoft. It also gave rise to a very popular song of Skyprosoft https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skyprosoft :
"Cat and Dog Live Together In Perfect Harmony"
(with the melody of Paul McCartney's EEEbony")
