By now you may know that our offices are dog-friendly (don’t worry, no dogs allowed in the kitchens—unless they're our home kitchens), but plenty of staffers also keep company with another variety of four-legged friends: cats. Since our feline friends aren’t allowed in the office, they’ve mastered the art of working from home. Over the past few weeks, they’ve had a chance to show us how this whole social distancing thing is really done. Here’s how our cats have “helped” us work from home. (Spoiler: there have been a lot of naps.)

Good thing Hat’s person was nearby for a nice lap nap; I’m sure he wasn’t doing anything more important!

Vlad is less of a helper and more of a lurker. “Same,” says Max.

Boris is a stickler for schedules and would like to get back to working remotely, please. Banjo is a bit confused about what “working remotely” means.

Meanwhile, Stanley dreamt of walls made of cardboard and waterfalls of endless gravy. “Did someone say ‘gravy’?” asked Miamo.
