Have you tried sitting on it? 🧐 That’s all Krista had for these kinds of problems. 😹 Sometimes with barf paws.🤦🏼‍♂️

I feel like kicking it, honestly. Like tearing out all of its little wires, one by one, remorselessly, mercilessly, coldly and calculatedly, and throwing it. BUT it's not its fault. It's MICROSOFT's fault. And yes, facebook's, too.

Sleeping sweetly while displaying her long soft white stockings *and a tail tip, too!*
Yes, a paperweight like that cannot be surpassed. :hearthrob: :kneading: :hearthrob:
I think I have that same bookcase. Office supply store *dont remember which one*
I don’t know where that bookcase originally came from. The bookcase, the media bench, and the coalition of cheetahs all came from a former employer’s former identity’s former office site. 🤔😲 After they were acquired, that site, its furniture, and its stash of trade show cheetahs were no longer needed. I was among the few who got to pick over that site before corporate came for the rest to go into storage. (Or whatever they do with sites they close.) That bookcase, the media bench, and a handful of cheetahs have survived the twenty years (and several moves) since. 👍

We had an office furniture reseller here in L.A. Metro -- not sure if it's still around, but hope it is, because you can get good stuff at good prices and/or get your stuff resold (not sure what the procedure is there. Not a business.) I love those cheetahs.
I've got a task chair that my ex brought home when he had the buildings refurnished. It's pretty worn out now, but it's a lot better than what I had and lots better than the straight dining room chair my roomie insists on using as he hacks his way through the days and late into the nights. *He recently got a bunch of chiro appts and is feeling better. I sent him a few Staples chair sale emails but stopped because he's not going for it at all.* I've got my dad's tiny file cabinet plus 3 of my own in here, all new from Staples, I think. My ex gave me his computer desk, which is great because it has a dropdown for the keyboard and it's fairly roomy. One big IKEA Billy bookcase, 2 CD towers on either side of it, plus the bookcase that looks like yours, my weight bench and a childhood bookcase and the ubiquitous cat furnishings fit into this office.

*Dad. I'm already chillin' so how about some Netflix?
Or maybe a ball game?
If I leave my tail tip and a paw in reach, I can cute you out...
...and then it's nap time!* :hearthrob: :zzzcat::hearthrob::loveeyes:
I called it Netflix and Purr. 😻

With the weather getting colder, and I'm finally sleeping under the covers again, it's getting harder to wake up in the mornings. I miss my sleeping buddy. We used to have epic napping contests on winter weekends.

No doubt. I can't sleep without cats. If I wake up catless, I go searching until I find a cat to bring in. Autumn and Winter catless? No way could I endure that.

She was having dental issues and refusing food or only nibbling despite being obviously hungry. We would fix this in a couple weeks.
