Oppressive working conditions

cat in in-trayJust in case you thought my new job was going ok - just look at the humiliations and suffering I have to endure. I'm the grumpy-looking one at the back by the way...

Apparently this local cat has a habit of wandering in to the building - I can't really blame it, the heating settings are managed by a frigophobic sauna-loving maniac as far as I can tell.

It's not the cat I object to as such - it can't help being a cat, and it was harmlessly friendly, if a bit casual about its approach to desk territory, clearly having no idea of office etiquette. But its presence (for about 5 hours) led to a succession of female colleagues, from senior managers down, coming in to coo at how lovely he was, and isn't he friendly, and I wonder where he comes from and isn't he well-behaved. And they liked the cat too.
