Take Your Work to Your Cat

Take Your Cat To Work Day is June 22nd. Normally, bringing Fluffy in to work with you probably isn’t very realistic for many of you. However, this year, more people than ever have found themselves working at home. If you’re one of them, you may very well find yourself with a furry, somewhat judgmental coworker. Here, a Marietta, GA vet offers some tips on working with kitties.

Desk Setup

Keep your kitty in mind when you set up your desk for remote work. Now, we’re not  suggesting putting a catnip plant and a fish tank on your desk. Instead, we advise finding an empty box and putting that on or near your desk. According to the laws of kitty physics, this will attract and trap your furball. It will be even more effective if it’s in a sunbeam. Also, be careful about beverages. Make sure to use cups that either have lids or are too heavy for your pet to knock over. You don’t want Fluffy knocking your glass of water onto your computer!


Speaking of computers, you may need to kittyproof yours. Cats love warm napping spots. Fluffy has been known to sit, walk, or sleep on keyboards, and has definitely posted, mangled, or erased things in her day. Set your screensaver to start after 30 seconds of inactivity. That way, if you get up for a glass of water, you won’t come back to find that your pet has video-called your boss.


Our feline pals are very, very sleepy. You don’t want to follow Fluffy’s lead too closely here. Sleeping on the job is not a good idea! However, it is important to make sure you are getting enough rest. If your schedule allows, get into the habit of taking afternoon naps.


One great thing about working with cats? You have an adorable, purring stress reliever available to you at all times. Cuddling Fluffy is much more soothing than those squishy balls you squeeze with your hands. This has been a tough year, so let your feline buddy comfort you. Pet her regularly, or even let her hang out on your lap. Our furry friends are truly one of life’s greatest gifts in our book!
