Calvin, Cat Office Manager

I leave my office door open so my muses — my three dogs and four cats — can come and go as they please.

My canine posse stays close. Jasper takes up position in the hallway.

Lilah tucks herself neatly in the kneehole under my desk.

Tucker picks one of the three beds in the office and hangs out. Literally.

Dawn and Athena make very rare appearances, so it’s usually Elsa Clair and Calvin who hold the feline fort.

Elsa Clair stays near in an unobtrusive way, most often holding court on the slide-out panels of my desk, on which I’ve strategically placed a soft mat.

Or she minds her own business in the cat hammock strategically placed in front of the window.

Calvin, on the other paw, strategically places himself where he can contribute in his best cat manner to the overall productivity of my office.

He manages to get in the way multiple times a day.

    Mario here – Wow Elsa you and I must be related – first cousins maybe – because we sure look quite a bit alike. You are a beautiful girl. M fell in love with your golden retriever too, and your other two doggies. She’s a sucker for all animals using 4 legs. Thanks for visiting my blog. Nice to meet you.

  16. Carol Bryant says:

    That is so cute that the cat does that – lovely pack you have!

  17. City Dog Expert says:

    Oh Calvin!!!

    lol. He is clearly the forman. Making sure you are keeping up with the blog.

    Kisses and catnip

  18. LOL ;0 I have a Calvin too! Except his name is Charlie.

  19. Marie says:

    My cat helps me be productive by stretching out on my desk to make sure none of my papers fall off 🙂

  20. Sadie says:

    They’re all very professional indeed! Looks like they’ve got everything under control.

  21. Truffle is usually on the desk in front of my monitor and Brulee is usually on the floor beside my chair.

  22. Socks is my office cat and he prefers my lap.

  23. It’s certainly nice to hang out with friends at the water cooler. We have two office cats. Mickey Mouser likes to sleep in the nice cat beds, but Rufus the Red needs to investigate the paper coming out of the printer and loves to walk across the computer keyboard.
