Mother’s Little Helpers


My wife started a new job a few months ago that allows her to work from home a couple of days per week. The company provided her with a laptop and she had been working on a small table on our patio. The cats are all interested in “helping” her with her work, especially “Chris” who helps the most.

One day, Chris almost got fired when he dumped a full cup of tea on the laptop. It stopped working and Rose immediately took the battery out and let it dry for a day. When that didn’t work she brought it to a local computer shop who did nothing for several days and then said she needed a new mother board. Fortunately, I thought they seemed shady so we picked up the computer, brought it home and it worked, so Chris got to keep his job.

It didn’t take long before Rose realized that one table was not big enough for three cats and all her work so we bought a small desk and put it next to the table.

It seems that gold cats also have good luck to share.

I’m sure all you pet bloggers out there can relate to this.
