Working from home may have had its challenges at times but one of the positives has been the time that we spent with our pets.
They may have struggled with our constant presence at first (cats) or been delighted with the extra time together (dogs) but their companionship has helped us through the pandemic and helped to reduce our stress levels!

Here’s a look at the some of the MM team’s furry pals that brightened our WFH days:
