4 Legged Work Colleagues
I am lucky enough to be able to work from home. People are always asking me, "don't you get lonely?" but I can honestly say that I don't. A lot of my friends and former work colleagues can be contacted easily online and being able to choose my own working hours has the advantage that if I want to go out and meet with someone for lunch or a shopping trip, I can do that. I find that I work much more productively without distractions and I enjoy the quiet working environment.
These days I only share my office with a 4 legged 'colleague', namely Lilo, my tabby cat. She always comes in to keep me company and I think she enjoys watching me work. She seems to know when I am getting a bit stressed because she comes and sits on my lap, perhaps realising that the sound of a cats purr always has a calming effect on me.
I'm attaching a photo of Lilo in her 'Global International Managers' box.
Do you ever work at your computer with a cat on your lap or a dog at your feet, or even a budgerigar on your shoulder?
