This is a huge part of a cat's daily routine and they frequently choose the couch as their preferred spot to snooze. We highly recommend setting your work station up elsewhere to allow optimum cat-napping.
Now that all your meals are at home your cat is not going to want to be left out of any snack or eating party. An extra treat or two is going to be necessary to keep the meowing "I'm hungry!" complaints at bay.
Some cats are going to be delighted to have their human around more so make sure to take a break from the laptop to get some cuddles and chin scratches in. Cuddling helps relieve stress and releases happy hormones- good for both human and cat.
How has your cat responded to having you at home?
Maybe a Calming Pet Bed might help them ease into this new working environment.
