From an office desk, working from home can seem pretty glamorous. You mostly get to set your own hours, wake up whenever you want, and wear your pajamas to work.
However, those of us who work from home know that our work days aren’t as fancy free and easy as office dwellers might imagine. Throw a cat into the mix, and you have even more to deal with.
And with the global pandemic shifting the way we conduct business, the ranks of pajama and keyboard workers have only grown!
Are you having a difficult time balancing your cat with your work schedule? Here are some tips to keep the home office work environment in balance so you can finish the job and still feel like a good cat parent.
Give Kitty Their Own Space — Not Your Keyboard
I don’t know what it is, but every cat has some sort of drive to sit right on your keyboard as soon as you have to get to work. My calico, Pookie, has a fantastic talent for this.
To prevent your cat from literally blocking you from your work, make sure they have their own space where they can be comfortable and relax. If your cat is particularly clingy and wants to be next to you as you type, try getting a kitty hammock you can hang near your desk or workspace.
