Molly the cat gets introduced to the printer, shows her displeasure

By Lorrie Shaw

A few weeks ago, I wrote about the challenges of working from home when you've got pets.

In talking with some colleagues recently, we mused about our pets — mostly dogs and cats — and the kinds of things we encounter when we are working from home. Our collective experiences leaned toward the funny side, of coursem and as you can probably relate to as well, we are always in good company.

One cat, a torotiseshell, (or as these cats are more commonly referred to, "torties") evidently doesn't care too much for her human's endeavors in trying to get a little work done.

In fact, this very unhappy feline conveys her displeasure when the printer begins churning out paper.

Thanks for your comments, everyone. It can be pretty humorous to see the reaction that our furry housemates have to everyday things that we might take for granted. This by far was the most funny reaction by a cat yet!

Mine get curious about it, peek at it and then run away! This was by far the best reaction I've seen to a printer. Thanks for the laugh.

pretty funny. Gorc, this IS a pet column. Not like they're putting it in the 'headline' news items.
