8 Reasons Not to Take Your Cat to Work

Did you know that June 22nd is Take Your Cat To Work Day? While this may sound like a great way to brighten up your workday, you may want to think twice before bringing Fluffy to the office. Read on as a Bee Cave, TX vet lists some reasons not to take your feline buddy in to work.

Power Naps

Fluffy definitely isn’t a very good influence when it comes to getting motivated. Your drowsy pet will likely spend most of the day sleeping on the job. Kitties have a special ability to act as unofficial sleep aids, so you may be tempted to snuggle up with your furball instead of finishing that report.

Desk Hockey

Cats love knocking small objects off tables and desks. Your kitty may spend the day hopping from desk to desk, and knocking everyone’s pens and water bottles onto the floor.

Shoelace Games

Our feline friends are very ferocious little predators. They also love to pounce on things. Your playful pet may attack the drape cords or your co-workers’ shoelaces.


You may have heard the saying about how cats have never forgotten the fact that the ancient Egyptians worshipped them as deities. You may definitely see evidence of this in the workplace! Fluffy may very well sprawl out on your boss’ desk, groom herself while sitting on an important document, or steal his or her chair.

Computer Issues

We aren’t quite sure why, but cats can’t seem to resist sitting or walking on computer keyboards. Fluffy certainly isn’t above ruining an important document or two!

Plant Hazards

Another way your furry little buddy may get herself into trouble is by nibbling plants. This can be bad for both your pet and the plant, especially if the plant isn’t safe for cats!

Furball Rules

One of our furry pals’ golden rules dictates that kitties are obligated to approach anyone who is allergic to or afraid of them. If there is one person in your office that gets stuffed up around kitties, that’s probably the person Fluffy will gravitate to.


This one is probably self-explanatory… a litterbox probably will not really go with the rest of your office décor.
