    I’ve heard and read soooo many funny cat stories from people working from home during COVID-19. It’s both fun and challenging to have our pets nearby…my cat especially likes walking across my keyboard when I’m trying to type. Hopefully, he hasn’t sent any offensive chat message to anyone 🙂

    When Dad was still working he had many ways to distract Buddy Budd who would spend the day with him but especially the rest of the family. We would all start visiting when it got close to dinner time (Dad got off at 5 and dinner was at 530.) Some days he would say “Everyone OUT” and close the office door but mostly would keep us distracted with one treat (spoil dinner?) and toys that were in a big basket. Yep it was work but he said we were worth it and after a long day it was nice to be wanted. Until dinner anyhow MOL

    I’m used to the mischief my cats get into since I am a housewife. But I sure can’t get used to my husband being home more since his hours got cut at his job.

      I often wonder about what this must be like for married couples who are not used to this much “together time,” Janine.

        It’s definitely tough. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy spending time with him, but usually when he was home before we would get out and do things. Stuck in the house together and not being able to go out is tough. At least he is still working 4 days a week even if they are less hours each day. I do get a little bit of quiet time that I love. When he’s home the tv is on all the time and it’s been an adjustment for me. The cats even seem to be a bit put off as he likes to lay on the couch where Lulu and Kiki like to sleep during the day. The one who is loving it is Pele becuase she likes to sit with him.

    My cats like to walk across my keyboard and then crawl in my lap. I have to push the keyboard up in the keyboard drawer so they have space to walk on it instead. And of course, they love to sit on my papers. When I had the old style monitor, they used to take turns draped on top of it.

      I think cats are probably still mourning the demise of the large, bulky monitors. Talk about a purrfect spot to supervise the human!
