Nope, not my cat. Anne Holland at MarketingSherpa details:
#10. Don’t forget to move the cat: We have a company policy that everyone can bring their pets to work. Anyway, my old cat Pete lives in my office. You’d never know he was there. Except the minute I get on the phone to do a webinar or teleseminar. Then he erupts into a frenzy of loud meows. Unceasingly. For the entire hour. So I purchased a fleece-lined animal carrier bag called, no joke, a Sherpa. Prior to each event, I stuff Pete into the Sherpa and off he goes down the hall to spend the next hour making the lives of the folks in our service department a living nightmare.
That’s awesome. I almost always remember to put by puss in the bathroom before a call but sometimes I forget and I spend the whole call hoping he doesn’t start running around like a banshee. Luckily, he’s a very very quiet cat – he talks maybe once a week and that’s all he has to say. He does have a collar and his nametag can jingle when he runs around or scratches his chin for any length of time. But usualy, he is quiet and when I open the bathroom door backup after the call is over he’s ont he floor sleeping and looking at me to say What? I’m sleeping. What do you want?
I do have to turn off the air conditioner and box fan before a call. I’m not sure folks can hear it but sometimes callers are very faint and I strain to hear ’em.
