Finally Friday

My back is almost back to normal, so it looks like Monday, I'll be a commuter once again.

I always enjoy working from home, but it does have it's disadvantages. I miss my cubicle-mate. She's always good for a laugh, to bounce ideas off, and just general good company.

 At home I can bounce ideas off the cats, but the response is usually the same.

"What care I for the flow of that sentence?"


"I eat random crud off the floor, and  you want my opinion?" 


 "Not now, can't you see we have some very important napping to do?"


"What they said"

You don't really realize just how much your cats sleep until you're home with them for a full week. Note to self: Reincarnation as a cat is a must. 

When they aren't sleeping they are, naturally, far more disruptive than that loud guy at that everyone has at the office. Their only saving grace is that they're cuter, because at home I get disrupted by

"What are you eating? Can I have some? Just a little piece? Seriously, just drop a crumb on the floor. No one will know. C'mon, I'm eleventy-billion years old. Take pity on me. This could be my last snack... like I mean EVER."


 "C'mon.... play with me. You need a break anyway. C'mon, stealth kitty is your favourite game.....No? Fine, next bathroom break, stealth kitty is going to break cover and run right in frontof you as you head up the stairs... see how fun  work will be with a cracked noggin."


"Yeah, I'm sitting on your stuff. You don't need this do you? Seriously, I don't think you need this.I think you put it here just for me. I can't see any other purpose for it than for my pleasure.Speaking of my pleasure - I want a belly rub and some fresh tuna - stat!"

Okay... yeah.. I'm ready to head back to the office...

Hilarious post! I also have a stealth kitty problem. If I am found dead at the bottom of the stairs it will most likely be a certain gray kitty's fault. She so enjoys throwing herself in front of me in the worst possible places.

I started out working from home one or two days a week, now I go into the office one or two days a week. While there are 225 people there, I don't work with any of them - my team members are in NY, Zurich, and Riga. At home my dog keeps me company - she sleeps as much (if not more) than a cat! Glad your back is feeling better.

I think you have your cats pegged pretty well, especially the "snack" ones.

There's something admirable about a cat's lifestyle - eat, nap, play, eat some more! A bit tedious, but I think I could manage it for a few days!

Love it! Any post with cats, lots of cats, is a bonus!
I occasionally practice being a cat by napping for hours in a beam of sunshine. I like it. Perhaps I was a cat in a former life. :)
