I think my kitties live a life of luxury and pampering with few rules. They, however, have a very different opinion. Sometimes the two collide.
I have a home office. When I am on a conference call or am conducting online training it would appear less than professional if a cat wandered by onscreen or if a mewing was heard in the background. For that reason the door is closed and the kitty access door is blocked.
This is (apparently) highly unfair.
This morning while conducting a training session with a client in England I was keenly aware of the snuffling and light scratching going on outside the door for the hour long session.
Then about ten minutes before the end … there was a snap and pop and Princess strode into the room with an audible snort, Rusty in trail.
She stiffly walked past me into the back room (all this out of range of the webinar camera) and laid down there. Every fiber of her being conveyed her defiance of the totalitarian regime.
(understand that there was a block “snap on door” on BOTH sides – she had popped the outside one off and then muscled her way through the one on the inside)
You just can’t keep a good cat down!
