In the age of coronavirus and social distancing, millions of people around the world are forced to study, teach or work remotely. This is one of the best ways to protect ourselves and prevent spreading of the virus in community.
However, working and learning from home can be hard at times for many people, especially cat owners. Our feline friends can become jealous when they feel they’re being excluded, so it’s not surprising that there’s been a huge spike in the number of curious cats crashing zoom chats.
1. “Does everyone else’s cat feel the need to join you on every Zoom meeting?”
2. “First Zoom lectures recorded and uploaded. It looks like students are going to get to know my cats over the coming weeks…”
3. Me: I have a zoom meeting later
My cat: oh me too
“Live look at the cat in question right now”
4. “Your Zoom meeting grid as depicted by cats.” (Press play to watch.)

18. “My coworker told me I looked ‘very professional’ on the full-lab zoom call this morning because I was wearing a shirt with buttons, despite the fact that I was also holding a 16 lb cat like a baby”
