On a stormy day when the thunder just doesn’t stop,
Equip your desk with a chair with four solid legs (not one of those supported by a central column).
Drape a blanket or beach towel over the seat before settling in to work, so that the ends of the blanket trail down to the floor on either side of the chair.
Be careful not to kick your heels backwards for the duration of the storm, as your feet will meet fur and you’ll be rewarded with an insulted “mrrrrmp!”.
In this period of stress and deadlines, I’m pleased that there’s at least one being on this planet whose needs are being met by me.
