So, I have this issue.
From what I understand, this is pretty typical.
Newt wants to be in the middle of my workspace, no matter what I’m doing.
I love her company. I really do. My problem comes in when she settles in, and then decides that me doing my work is disturbing her! I reach over her to get to my binder or to type on my keyboard… and she bites me!
So, I had to devise a solution.
Now, I’m no crafty Jodi. But I had a pile of green felt leftover from another project, and I had a little box. I didn’t want to just stick a box on my desk, so I decided to cover it with the felt. (Plus, Newt nibbles on the cardboard edges of boxes, and I’m not sure that’s good for her.)
Were I craftier, it would’ve occurred to me to take in-process photos, but it’s really so simple that they’re not needed.
Basically, I cut the top flaps off the box, then wrapped it like a Christmas present and hot glued the edges down.
What did the princess think?
She liked it!
So, now when she gets in between me and my keyboard, I drop a little treat in her box. She climbs in, gobbles the treat, and then, since she’s already there… she curls up for a nap. Problem solved!
