Guys, I really need to get myself a kitten. I'm currently on a remote project, but I might travel next year. Anybody has a cat that they leave alone each week? Am I being too selfish? 😔

That's selfish. Would you like to be left alone for the next week? And every week after that?

Get the kitten! I used to have a cat we'd leave alone 3-4 days at a time. Better yet, get two kittens. Then they always have a friend.

I have three cats, and though I have a fiancée at home to mind them, they likely wouldn't know the difference. Cats are so independent that they'll enjoy your company when you're home (and greet you at the door) and just sleep while you're gone. 10/10 do recommend

Do you have family who can commit to taking care of the kitten when you're away?

I really want a dog but I can't because my parents don't like dogs and I travel 100%. Else I would drop off my dog at my parents during the week and pick up on Friday...sigh

Wait you're in Chi?? Uhh can I ask for some help? I'm trying to transfer 😂 you have a burner?

Why do you need a kitten ?

Not cat related, more Chicago related. Totally cool if you're not comfortable with it though.

... you are wanting to get a kitten and have him spend over 50% of his life alone, shitting in 4 day old litter box and drinking not fresh water. Yes selfish.

I have a cat, had him 9 years.. I've been traveling every week since 2010. I leave him lots of food and water and when I get home on Thursday's he's happy to see me but it's not like tragic because he was alone... if I'm ever gone more than 5 days straight my friends check on him

I would not -cause I would worry all the time I was gone.

Even better- get two! They will keep each other entertained! Though I would recommend adult cats and not kittens, as to prevent total mayhem while you're gone.

Any tips for navigating client office politics? I’m working on a process improvement project involving multiple teams and one team feels threatened that my client team is taking work from them (and that their jobs will be in jeopardy as a consequence), and they are slowing down progress which prevents me from doing my job. Client execs are aware but have their hands tied. What’s the best way around this?

NY Divorced Fish: Did you pay/receive spousal support?

Curious how the courts typically deal with spousal support these days when there are no kids involved and both parties have jobs, good education, and are in their mid/late 30s?

We’ve done a good job being civil about everything but I make $180k and ex makes $70k so there is an income difference (married 8 years).

We’ll both also walk away with around $225k each in cash/retirement savings.
