Diply Social Team

Working remotely has its perks, but it also comes with a unique set of challenges. For one employee, the issue at hand is whether or not her feline friends should be allowed to make appearances during virtual meetings. She's been working remotely for years, and her cats are often in the room with her. Most of her coworkers are familiar with her furry companions, but a newer employee named Sue has taken issue with their presence. 🐱💼

Feline Fiasco: Whose Side Are You On? 🐈

So, the question remains: is having a cat in the room during virtual meetings unprofessional, or is Sue overreacting? The employee has been with the company for years, and her cats have never caused any disruptions. The founders don't seem to mind, but Sue's passive-aggressive attitude has made things uncomfortable. Let's see what the internet has to say about this furry dilemma... 📣

Coworker complains about cat, but OP is NTA. Get ahead of it with boss.
