Dog=Catherder? Jul 13, 2013

The dog's doing a great job.
And the cats are organized and not running wild. icon_smile.gif

Abandon the office Jul 13, 2013

It is not worth it to work from an office overrun with cats and dogs. Abandon it and work from under the street lamp across the road.

What if they follow you?

They wait until you have finally left, and then get into your refrigerator.

My working day wouldn't be the same without my cat giving my laptop evils for taking up valuable lap space and then walking across the keyboard in an attempt to usurp its place.

Lookout Jul 13, 2013

Mine likes a strategic lookout position on top of my dictionaries. She keeps an eye on me from there.

I am glad your clients are ok with you outsourcing your translation work to your cat, mine wouldn't take that kindly to it (provided I had a cat, which I don't, and won't ever have).

Funny, I have more than one client who encourages me to work with "cat tools" or something like that.

Yes Bala, because I'm not capable of either a) stopping her from pressing any keys or b) deleting the dqwghieqwugdwaiqsvbdiwasu which I've just seen her do - right in front of my faceicon_rolleyes.gifWhen words fail to describe the dismay, there is always facepalm

Or to keep it on topic - cat facepalm...

What was that recent question about needing a Like button? Jul 14, 2013

.... because it would have been very useful here. Love your dog filed under the bed, Tristan, and many of the other photos made me chuckle too. My dogs just file themselves on my bed in the room next-door to my office.... Close enough to hear if I might be getting ready to stop work and take them for a walk, also a good vantage point (for the big one at any rate) to see out of the front window if anyone dares to be coming up the path and frenzied barking might be in order....
