Nothing is “normal” when you have a pet around.
Times aren’t as they are supposed to be. There has been a major shift in the way we work now. Thanks to the global pandemic, COVID-19, FaceTime, or face-to-face communication at the office is not possible. In order to keep everyone safe, companies have opted for remote working where the employees get to work from home and use internet serves, telecommunication technology, and computers to form a virtual organizational structure and work. Work from home has really helped our pet animals. Whenever Mum and Dad leave for office, you should see the face of their pet, they get so sad and can’t resist seeing them when they come back home. Do you know how hard it is to not get a belly rub for a cat? Or when there is no one to throw the ball for a dog to go fetch? It’s tough! But the good news for these cute animals is that their time has come now! That now goes away. Pets get to be with their owners all day long, even when they are working. Some of them were very excited about this new regulation while the others didn’t enjoy having to face their owners all day long too much.
Having a pet around makes everything crazier and “not normal”. Things get dialed up to 9 and that’s exactly what has happened to the working experience of people who are working remotely and also have a pet around. Work never felt more fun, given the time to time involvement of their pets.
Here are 16 wholesome moments shared by pet owners while they work from home, They are both hilarious and cute! It’s all about the happy moments.

Imagine when the virus goes away, I mean it has to. These pets are getting so much time with their parents, the attachment levels must be off the chart. Imagine when the whole pandemic ends and employees have to go back to physical offices, that separation time would be so hard for the pets. I don’t want that to happen but I don’t want the virus to stay either. Dilemmas! Dilemmas!

Oh, and yes, we should not forget about the fact that these pets definitely existed before this pandemic came in and were familiar with a routine where it’s only playtime and fun when owners return from home.
