The place for pets, and their owners

Cats and mouse (pads)


I found this picture pretty amusing because Stanley does the exact same thing in my home office. Is it because cats somehow respond to the word “mouse” and therefore determine they must take ownership? Darned if I know.
Anyway, this is Jasmine, the personal office cat of recent P&C reader Shari Peyser. Shari says, “I actually put down a towel on her beach so that she wouldn’t land on the mousepad — although when she sprawls, we have little push backs on whose work is more important!”

As I told Shari, I bet she loses. I know I usually do. Here is Jasmine, hard at work.

I should also note, I’m so jealous. Wish I could have a desk cat!

About this blog
For most animal lovers, pets are members of the family. They carry around pictures in their wallets and schedule vacations with pets in mind. This blog takes a look into the world of a pet owner: the good, the bad and the just plain obsessive.
