I’m not sure if I told you all about the cat who came to work – We had this precious little kitty show up over a year ago and make herself at home here. We’re quite sure she has a real family because she’s always warm, dry and clean and has clearly been fixed as there have been no kittens. I think they work all day and aren’t home when we’re at the office. She comes in and usually hangs out in my office in one of the client chairs. We’ve had to physically move her when the paying folks want to come in.
When she first came around, the legal secretary and I named her Cali for Calico and the paralegal said, “Don’t name it. If you name it, you own it.” Now, she is one of the cat’s biggest fans- she even pulled a blanket and pillow out of her car and put it in a sheltered place when it was cold last weekend in case the cat got stuck outside.
Cali has brought us joy and even the clients know her name. I’ll never forget the day my one client asked, “Can I let Cali in, she’s outside the door?”
Did you know that almost all calico cats are female? They are. Isn’t that cool?
I have pics of her here. She’s in my basket where I toss cases to go to the storage shed, on one of my client chairs and under a tree. If you can’t tell, my office is in a mixed-use area. Light commercial (offices) and residential. Makes for fun neighbors!
