mikey cam!!

Mikey is the new barn cat at Charlie's farm.

he's not feral like all the other barn cats

actually, he's previously been a house cat

for unknown reasons, tho, he was returned to the shelter from a prior home

maybe he had problems with peeing in the wrong places, or biting or something

we don't really know, other than -- now he's ours!

and i LOVE mikey. he's everything a brown tabby ought to be <3

these are not mikey tho - these are ducks

ducks at a sewer stream nearby my apartment

bc i'm still just hangin out at home, with these hellions. not seeing mikey, or charlie for that matter. womp.

it's getting dire, tbh!

    2. Keyword most of the time. Biscuit keeps participating is zoom meetings (and tried to interview a candidate the other day). She also tried to log into my work computer multiple times. She's driving me insane... Some cats don't need attention. Others need an intervention.

    3. lolol i'm 100% right there with ya.... i've been working from home for a few years now so in some ways i'm kinda used to the cat wrangling (pro tip: keep a laser pointer handy so you can quickly "send" the cats out of the room when you're in the middle of a call or presentation!). but actually, now that everyone is in the same boat, it's suddenly like, ok so EVERYONE has cats or kids or spouses or whatever scurrying across the background, it's more accepted now lol...

    4. I send her away and I hear crashes in other rooms. It's all about weighing my options and deciding what I value more... Sometimes laser pointers work, sometimes playing with the laser pointer itself is more fun. That said, the sleeping cat is more of the laser pointer fan and she doesn't interrupt meetings. One day she'll grow up. 2 isn't grown up yet. Maybe 3 will be the year. Or maybe tuxedos don't grow up (or so I've heard)... She had me playing fetch through an entire department meeting the other day...

  5. Mikey is awesome. I am happy that you have some good companions at home- just keep them out of the beer.

  6. I saw some cute ducks chilling on my walk last week. I literally could have grabbed them but they were just napping looking cute so I took a photo instead.

  7. Cats named Mikey are almost always awesome. We had a stray show up at the barn in college and named him Mikey. Mikey wound up crawling under someone's car to warm up one day and wound up costing something like $4000 in vet bills. He came out of it with a surgically fused hock but otherwise okay. I'm pretty sure he's still alive. Other than that little incident he was (is?) an awesome barn cat.

    Hope you can safely refill the beer stock! My local wine store delivers now, THANK GOODNESS!
