I appreciate the fact that I have a home office. It allows me the freedom to exercise Bingo every day on my lunch break and supply my cat with a necessary lap to sleep in. Of course, this also means the pets believe I stay home all day to serve their needs. If they want anything, they come and sit at my feet and stare at me with desperation.
Eventually they will give up and go lay down if I can’t respond, but they also know that the pathetic looks they’ve mastered will often lead to them getting their way. I know they love having me home, and having them close definitely brightens my day.
