Wordless Wednesday: Sleepy cats at work

Popoki the cat has been out of my writing studio for a few weeks now. I've been trying to integrate her into my community of house cats, and that's meant she's been living in the house with the other cats. Slow introductions through gates progressed to slow introductions with the doors open to face-to-face meet and greets.

All went well until the face-to-face thing happened. Every time we progressed to that stage, Popoki started fighting.

So we're back to sequestered life. And that means I have a very sleepy office mate.

She spends most of every day lounging around in this rocking chair, tucked away in the corner of my studio. Sometimes, she sleeps all out and open like this, but sometimes, she sits in the chair and looks out the window at the cat television.

And when she gets bored, she helps me with my work. She's good at it, don't you think?

I'm glad to have her back out here. I know it means she might never integrate with or accept other cats, but she does make the regular office day just a little more entertaining. And that's what it's all about, right?

Thanks, as always, to BlogPaws for hosting this hop. And if you're reading out there, leave me a comment so I'll know what you thought! And then, check out the other blogs in the hop.


  1. Aw, we're sorry that the integration attempts haven't gone exactly as you had planned. But Popoki surely does make a nice office mate. :)

  2. She is so cute! I'm sorry integration with the other cats hasn't worked so well. Some kitties are best suited to be office cats. I love having my Manna with me while I blog. :)

  3. We are so sorry the face-to-face has not worked out. I, however, don't know what I would do without a helper at the computer. Popoki is so adorable. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  4. I am sorry Popoki isn't able to make friends, but glad you have found a solution that works for everyone!

  5. She is a beautiful cat. Two of mine will never be friends, but at least they tolerate each other... about half the time. Hopefully things will get better with time for Popoki.

  6. She's a beautiful girl - those eyes are captivating. Maybe in time, she'll get better but if not, that's okay too. I don't always integrate well, either. ;-) Happy Thursday!
