Working From Home… With A Cat

A lot of you probably don’t know this, but I run a local internet marketing business out of Fayetteville, NC. We do local SEO, website design, and lead generation for small businesses. It is a pretty cool gig, something I’m pretty passionate about, and it let’s me work from home – which is always great. The problem with this, of course, is that I own a cat. A cat who, because of the cold season we’re getting into, must be with me at all times. And not just near me – but actually on me.

She walks up to me, standing on my desk and in front of my monitor, and starts kneading on my tummy and chest with her front paws, and then she slowly – and awkwardly – climbs down on top of me, requiring me to use my left arm to hold her because my chair only leans back so much. If I don’t hold her, she’ll fall, and that results in me getting scratched up. So I hold her. And now I only have one arm.

This can often lead to her playing a wonderful game with me called, “Get the hoodie strong on daddy’s hoodie while he’s trying really hard to concentrate”, which I have a video of here:

I also have some wonderful pictures of her shortly after this, and at other times, just having a good nap:

This is usually how it goes.

Sitting on the couch? No problem, dad!

 What is that ting?

Never mind. Let’s watch the noisy window together.

I lubs working wifs yew, daddy!

I can’t even use the bathroom in peace! ????
