Work-From-Home Colleagues

Three panels. Panel one, I walk with my laptop saying "Time to get some work done!" Panel two, I find the cat sitting on my desk chair. Panel three, I work on the couch.

Four panels. Panel one, the cat sits on the couch arm watching me type. Panel two, the cat climbs onto my lap, forcing me to move my laptop. Panel three, I hold my laptop in the air, the cat is curled sleeping in my lap. Panel four, I lean awkwardly to type with my laptop on the couch arm while the cat purs happily in my lap.

    I think you’re supposed to put the laptop on the cat…

      My cat has serious cattitude and would not put up with that, unfortunately.

    Haha! In my case it’s a small white dog that does exactly the same. She also pops up and curls up on my lap when I’m sitting at my desk. I have to type one-handed then as I am just cradling her a little to make sure she’s not going to fall off with the other!

      I also have to make sure my cat doesn’t fall off. If he does, he will stick his claws in my leg to save himself and then bite me in retaliation for him slipping, because apparently gravity is my fault.

    I felt this, every frame of the way, because I have a cat who does the same thing. I am smiling.

    Hey cats! We have four humans here whose bodies you can nestle into!

    Okay, but you just prompted me to go take some pictures of Alexander Hamilton, who was not bothering me (for once). Now he’s awake and aware of my existence again.

    I may have to feign an interest in Husband’s chair… Ham commandeers it only when Husband is actually home to be inconvenienced by this, but maybe if I want to use it…

      WOAH. Percy (our cat) does exactly this. With my husband’s chair ONLY. Like, Percy will sit in my office chair. In fact he really seems to enjoy napping on it. But he vindictively steals my husbands when he’s working from home. Sometimes I think Percy deliberately lures my husband into standing up so he can take it.

    I don’t know if this will work or not, but won’t a laptop charger’s transformer be hot? It might make a good alternative for the cat?

      He’s more after laps than heat. He get’s very insistent about laps.
