In a week where no less than three cats made cameos on various Zoom calls, we had to ask, “What’s with cats and laptops?”
Some cats will take any opportunity to jump on an owner’s keyboard, creeping into view on calls and leading to unwanted typos in your Slack channel (“Sorry that was my cat,” seems to be an increasing excuse).
While some owners have had luck setting up decoy laptops for their cats to lounge on, animal experts doubt your pet wants to take up typing.
More likely, they hop to your lap (and thus laptop) seeking attention, pats, and a warm spot to curl up. Unfortunately, amending this behavior often means ignoring them, even as they block your webcam.
If a cat in the chat is the least of your worries when it comes to working, check out this week’s opportunities below.
