In this difficult time that is the quarantine, most of us have to work from home, which means we don't get to see our colleagues. However, there's the next best thing: our pets!

They are here for us to make our workday better. So we ask you, the Bored Panda community, to share your current furry, feathery, or scaley companions and tell us what it is that they do during the workday.

Hopefully, these pictures will make your day a little brighter.

Update: thank you all for your lovely submissions! The thread is closed now.
