8.18.12 Everyone Needs An Office Cat

18 Aug

Last year, I guess it was last year but maybe it was longer ago, both Noel and Muffin slept in my office under the window in their beds.  As Muffin has gotten much frailer (he is 19 or 20 now I think), he does not come on my desk much anymore (accept late in the day sometimes when he wants to chew on my phone cord to tell me that he is hungry). Muffy mostly sleeps on the glass coffee table in the living room these days (I assume because it is central and cool and low to the ground).   Noel mostly sleeps alone in my office.  She gets to decide which bed she wants.  Today she is in Muffy’s red (manly) bed, but mostly she is in the her pink (girly) bed.   I have noticed that since my return from Australia she often sleeps in the next room (my den) on the couch during the day (I think it is much cooler in the den than my office, with all my equipment and lights. Also my office is the hottest corner of the house (of course it would be)).  I like that she has branched out (at least one room over).  Noel doesn’t get involved in the stupidness that goes on in the house with the other animals.  Mostly, she is ABOVE it.  Even the humans steer clear of her since she is not very approachable!  The only one she lets pick her up is me.  I pick her up like I did when she was a baby (upside down) and rock her in my arms and pet her face and her paws.  She and I are pretty close I guess.  She is my office cat.  Everyone should have an office cat.

Late Breaking News as I finish the post: OMG! Kitty is on my desk because no other cats are here (this never happened before).

    Muffin is 19 or 20? That is a grand age.

      Yes – but he is definitely like any old person, cranky and pesty.

    Be careful with your tail, Noel! Once I fell asleep on Mom’s iPad and accidentally typed QQQQQ with my ear.

    Love and licks,

    How great to have them (or at least one) with you whilst working. Glad you got a “first” visit at the end of the post and we get a great pic.

      Yes it is nice to have company while I work. Kitty really surprised me by her visit too.

    Oh my goodness! Kitty is such a beauty! That’s the first I’ve seen her full face markings. WOW!

      Thanks – she really is. We are sad that she is such a handful. Beautiful females can be that way I guess.

    Awww…I want an adorable view like that in my office! My view from my computer is a blank white wall!

      Paint it, hang pictures, do something, unless of course, you like white.
