Homeworker suffering workplace bullying from cat
A WOMAN working from home has found herself being bullied in the workplace by her cat.
Eleanor Shaw shares her flat with seven-year-old Tigger, but relations between the two have been strained since Shaw went freelance earlier this year.
She said: “It started as minor stuff, like playfully jumping on my lap when I was typing or making weird noises behind me to make me laugh, but it’s escalated.
“He walks across the keyboard, he knocks stuff over in the kitchen, and he’ll sit and stare at me for hours in the most intimidating way.
“He’s got other cats from the neighbourhood involved too. There were three of them outside the window eyeballing me for a whole afternoon. It’s impossible to think.
“It’s ridiculous. I’m not going to be bullied out of my own home by a cat. I’m only working in the cafe down the road three days a week because I like the walk, and the atmosphere, and the people.”
Tigger said: “Yeah, you better get the hell out. This is my me time.”
