The unsung victims throughout coronavirus quarantines are cats. Previously, they ruled supreme during office hours. Kings of their castles, they tolerated their owners in the evenings and on weekends, because Monday through Friday, they had the house to themselves. Now, they’re suffering constant companionship as people shelter-in-place, conducting all business from home. As cat people struggle to work in ramshackle home offices, cats are striking back. They meow during Zoom calls, insist the only comfortable place to sit in the entire house is on the keyboard, knock glasses of water (or wine) onto expensive technology.
