The Desk Cat

February 23rd, 2013

It’s no secret that I love cats, we have 4 of them running around Chiot’s Run. Three of them spend time indoors, two exclusively and one is an indoor/outdoor guy. With that many cats running around, it’s hard to be anywhere without one of them being underfoot, underhand, or on your lap.

Even when I’m working there’s often a cat sleeping on my desk, either to my left or behind my computer.

It sure is nice to have such a good paperweight. Of course when decide to sleep on the keyboard and type messages while doing so, that’s not as welcome. They can be pests at time, but in general, we welcome their companionship.

Do your house/garden companions ever get in the way?

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!
