The old saying “curiosity killed the cat” can be modified into “a cat’s curiosity killed people’s production levels,” for humans trying to get work done around them. Our four legged furry feline friends love nothing more than to stick their pink little noses into everything they come across. Many feel the urge to inspect whatever new object or nook and cranny that catches their fancy. A lot of the time cats want to be right by the side of their human companion, no matter what they may be doing. This seems to be especially true when working at home at a desk area, on a computer, and when a person is in the middle of doing something that needs to get done.

If you suffer from feline induced work struggles then check out this video from the YouTube kitties over at Cole and Marmalade on “How to survive working with cats!” They offer some great insights and tips on kitty management for beginners. First off, you need to always keep a spare chair close by and handy; one for you and one for fluffy. Next, always provide comfortable, and appealing sleeping spots. Any cardboard box will do, just place it at an elevated spot because cats like to be higher up so they can better look down on us. Be sure to cover up and tape down any wires that are hanging around and dangling down because a cat will feel the need to bite and claw at them. When you go to print important documents be quick, alert, diligent, and ready to snatch them as soon as the printer spits them out. If you fail to do this then you better be prepared to re-print the paper because the cat will in all likelihood have promptly destroyed it.

The most important thing you should practice is keeping all liquids and drinks in spill proof containers. Nothing could be worse than having coffee or some sticky, sugary drink getting knocked over and spilling onto electronics or a stack of papers. When all else fails, you need a break, or need to lure the cat away, take some tasty treats and strategically place them where desired. A cat will have no choice but to go to where the treats are and this will work every time. Another idea is to create a cat-free zone by separating and isolating yourself. Get creative with how you go about this and if all attempts fail you may have to shake that treat bag again. Check out the video for more adorable information and we hope these tips work to help improve those special moments spent working with kitty!
