Why Your Cat is Actually the Best Coworker You Could Ask For
May 09, 2023
Ah, the work-from-home life. If you're anything like moi, you've spent a good chunk of the past year confined to your abode, slugging away on your computer. And if you're also like moi, you've probably had to contend with some rather dubious colleagues. Maybe your significant other keeps interrupting your flow with inquiries about lunch. Perhaps your offspring refuse to grasp the concept of a closed door. Or, God forbid, maybe you're all alone and starting to feel like Jack Nicholson in The Shining.
But fret not, dear compadres! I'm here to enlighten you on a little secret. There's one co-worker who'll never let you down, no matter what: your feline friend.
Now, I can already hear some of you grumbling. "My cat? You must be joking. All she does is snooze on my keyboard and bat my pens around." But hold your horses, because I'm about to convince you that your cat is actually the crème de la crème of colleagues. Here's why:
First and foremost, cats are the epitome of independence. They're not like some other needy pets that demand constant attention and affection. Nope, cats are perfectly content just lounging around and doing their own thing. This means they won't be all up in your grill every five seconds while you're trying to grind out some work. It's refreshing to have a colleague who's not always demanding your attention, am I right?
But wait, there's more! Cats are also incredible zen masters. Have you ever watched a kitty cat take a snooze? It's like they don't have a care in the world. They're so serene and tranquil that it's almost infectious. Whenever I'm feeling frazzled or on edge, all I have to do is peek at my cat and I immediately feel more at ease.
And get this: Did you know that petting a cat can actually lower your blood pressure and reduce your stress levels? It's scientifically proven! So, when you're facing down a massive project or a looming deadline, take a breather and give your kitty a little scratch behind the ears. You'll feel the tension melting away faster than ice cream on a hot summer day.
But you know what's the absolute best thing about having a cat as your co-worker? They're freaking adorable, man. I mean, have you ever seen a kitty perched on an ergonomic chair? It's cuteness overload, my friends. And when you're feeling stuck on a problem or just generally fed up with life, a little bit of feline charm can work wonders.
Now, I know some of you skeptics might be fretting about cat hair, litter boxes, and scratching posts. Sure, being a cat parent comes with its share of responsibilities. But hey, I argue that these chores are actually a good thing. They force you to take breaks and stretch your legs throughout the day. And cleaning the litter box? Surprisingly therapeutic. Trust me on this one.
But let's get real about the actual physical benefits of having a cat colleague. For starters, these furballs make excellent lap warmers. If your office or home office is feeling chilly, just invite your kitty to snuggle up on your lap. And if you have an ergonomic chair, even better! Your cat can snuggle right up against your back, providing perfect support and warmth. It's a win-win, my friends.
To sum up, I firmly believe that cats are the ultimate coworkers. They possess all the qualities that make for a great work partner: they're self-sufficient, calming, endearing, and even beneficial to your health. So when work is getting you down, just glance over at your adorable little colleague and feel grateful for their company.
Who knows? Your furry friend might even spark your next brilliant idea. They say that the best ideas come when you least expect them, so why not take a break and play with your cat? You never know what might come to mind.
Of course, if you're more of a dog person, that's cool too. Dogs are fantastic coworkers in their own right. They're loyal, affectionate, and always ready for a good walk. But if you're seeking a less high-maintenance companion, cats are the paw-fect fit for any work environment.
Next time someone asks you about your favorite colleague, don't hesitate to give a shoutout to your feline friend. Sure, they may not have impressive typing skills or an eloquent phone manner, but their companionship is priceless. Let's be real, there's no better feeling than having your cat snuggled up next to you while you power through a tough project.
After all, life's too short to settle for less than what makes us happy. So let's surround ourselves with the things that bring us joy, whether it's a loyal pup or a purring kitty. And remember, your cat isn't just a pet, they're an essential part of your work life. So show them some extra love today and remind them that they're not just a furry face, they're your top coworker.
