Distractions when working from home

I don't have kids but I have nine fur babies. Two are still kittens around the age of 2-3 months. So everything is a toy to them, even the papers I brought home from work. They would try to bite, jump or whatever, maybe trying to attract attention or just having fun. I put them outside of my room multiple time today. My indoor cat, Lala also becomes more clingy. It's hard to type with one hand... Second day of working from home. Five more days to go.

Cats are lovely, but they want attention, they are bossy animals, but I love them.

They're really bossy. But I can' help falling in love with them.

I often had to stay in the room alone.

I can't be totally alone. Lala would stay in my room all the time.

But, when you're home, you're supposed to be available to play with your babies...

Oh wow, not sure how I would do with nine! At least they mostly stay outside. Nico is very distracting since he always wants to eat or thinks he does. It is kind of a boredom thing with him..or a way to get me to pay attention to him. I don't usually have time to play.

@prinzcy I got him a new toy today and the first thing he tried to do was eat the bell on it .or at least remove it. He hates bells and removed one from his collar.

@snowy22315 I removed the small stone in the bell. That way the bell won't make a sound. But only Lala wear a collar. The rest are outdoor cats. I don't want them to get caught onto something by wearing a collar.

Wow, your nine furry babies are sure to interrupt your work, as well as entertain.

You can ask your mom or sister to look after them till you are working.

@prinzcy you can keep them outside your room while working by locking yourself inside.

my cat always greets me when i come home from work and it feels very nice, the cat always follows my every step, it feels like a cat looking for attention but the cat's behavior always cheers me up

My cats also do that. Maybe they're just hungry.

@prinzcy yes sometimes when the cat is full the owner will be ignored because the cat will be so happy to play that it forgets the time

Kitties can be a huge distraction unless they are sleeping.

They have plenty of energy so it would be awhile before they finally sleep.

9 fur babies can certainly be distracting when you're trying to work.

Thankfully they're all sleeping now. Probably tired after all the exercise.

Fur babies are fun, I have three kittens, How do you get them to go to the litter box? Mine seem to have the idea but sometimes it looks like they forget or are not sure what to do,

I place the litter box in their cage but it's a battle even for me. Sometimes when they have to go, they have to go. I would let them run outside sometimes.

It sounds very distracting for working. I hope the cats get used to your being there and let you get your work done.

They're not stopping. I just put them outside and close the door. It's a bit hot during the day though...
