My Cubicle Mate, Er, Cat

A Letter to My Cat Book Club FL2W

Pixie has only been with our family for  15 months, but she’s made her mark. I was away for five days for Blogalicious and part of me missed the cat as much as I missed my kids. Almost. But don’t tell the kids. Pixie missed me too. She followed me around for a couple of days.

In fact, we keep each other company in my office. She always makes her presence known by sitting right in front of my monitor. Or, if she’s feeling especially feisty, she sits on my keyboard. Not very helpful when I’m trying to type.

Pixie sleeping on my desk

Most of the time, she sleeps on the piles of papers on my desk. I’ve cleaned off my desk for her, but she still chooses to sleep on a stuff. It’s pretty amusing until I realize that she’s sleeping on a paper I need.

Working from home can be a lonely endeavor, so I’m glad that Pixie reminds me to take a break and pet her. Typical cat.

This post was inspired by A Letter to My Cat by Lisa Erspamer, a collection of letters penned by celebrities to their furry friend. Join From Left to Write on November 10th as we discuss A Letter to My Cat. As a member, I received a copy of the book for review purposes.
