Pet project! Owners share snaps of their animals wreaking havoc as they try to work from home – from a cat snoozing on the keyboard to a bunny who’s ready to play

  • Many of us have had furry friends to keep us company while working from home
  • But some of these pets have caused mayhem, falling asleep on laptops
  • ScS has compiled a gallery of snaps as pets get in the way of their owners’ work

Many of us have been kept company by our furry friends while we’ve turned our homes into offices during the Covid-19 pandemic. 

But sometimes a pet’s presence can be more a help than a hindrance as they cause mayhem to our setups. 

Cats have fallen asleep on laptops, while dogs have sat watching owners, wondering when the next playtime would come – as these photos taken across the UK prove. 

The snaps were submitted to furniture company ScS for a contest to find the best working from home pet picture, which runs until next Monday. The winner could get a sofa set worth more than £1,200.   

Here, FEMAIL reveals some of the best of the 200 entries.
