If You Want to Get Anything Done, Do Not Teach Your Cat to Fetch.

I work at home, so I just don’t have enough ways to waste time during the day.

So I taught Penelope, our pastel tortie, how to play “Fetch the Mousie”. She was so good at it — she must have been a golden retriever in a previous life — that I had to keep playing with her for much, much too long.

And then I had to spend way too much time trying to get a cute picture of her fetching the mousie.

This is why working at home is exhausting. I need a nap.
