Allegra and Ruby: good office help is hard to find
My office is my favorite room in my house – which is a good thing, since I spend so much time in it! I have a big, white corner desk, a window with a beautiful view of the trees in my backyard, book shelves filled with treasured books and mementoes ,and a comfortable chair in one corner, which serves as meditation chair, editing chair, proofreading chair, and, of course, kitty cuddling chair.
Since I spend most of my day in my office, it’s not surprising that Allegra and Ruby do, too. They both like to hang out on the window perch next to my desk. They also like to help me work. You didn’t think I get all this writing done all by myself, did you?
As you can see in the photo at the very top, Allegra likes to sit right in front of my monitor. She says she’s proofreading my material, but what she’s really doing is following the movement of the cursor with her eyes, and sometimes her paw.
Ruby is the ultimate lap kitten, and loves to sit in my lap as much as she can. Sometimes, this limits my typing abilities to one hand, but I’m not complaining. Kitty cuddles trump work any time at our house. The only thing that will get Ruby up and out of my lap is when I print something. She has been utterly fascinated with the printer since she was a kitten. She jumps up on the desk and stares at it as paper gets pulled in and comes out on the other side. She never gets tired of this, and she actually comes running if the printer starts while she’s occupied elsewhere in the house.
As you know, both Allegra and Ruby have been especially busy these past few weeks helping me with our Pettie campaign. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for tirelessly voting for us each and every day. There are only seven days left to vote, and we appreciate each and every vote.
Do your cats help you work?
