I have what is arguably the ugliest kitty condo (actually two side-by-side) in my at-home office. I cringe each time I look at this monolithic monstrosity-- not only because it is inherently ugly, but because my savage feline friends continually modify its appearance by breaking it one bit at a time. You will note that the little landing upon which Maximus is lounging is now tethered to a bracket on the wall because the savages have nearly broken that perch as well. I should also mention that said bracket supports one end of a 7 foot long shelf that I placed over the 6 foot span French doors so that the savages could have a high perch from which to survey their kingdom. Yet, I can't get rid of this piece of feline furniture because it is so beloved by my furry friends. It is placed in front of the French doors that lead to the backyard, and the beasts attentively watch the ravens and squirrels as they routinely hold court on the back patio in order to taunt them. Aside from my desire to generally keep these babies happy my motivation for keeping this massive kitty meeting hall is to make my desk a less desirable piece of real estate because in the war of the wills I tend not to be the victor, in part because I am clearly outnumbered.
You will recall this photo of Oliver to illustrate my point. His eyes are dilated and his feet are poised on my laptop, and there need be little doubt that he's willing to do anything necessary to remain precisely where he is. Despite the fact that I have little chance of winning this particular battle-- that ugly condo does allow me to sneak in moments of unobstructed work space, and for this I am eternally grateful.
