After we wrote about our Vegas office assistant, we just had to write about our feline assistant, Junia, how works in the Vienna office. She's a 10-year-old tabby (her birthday party is coming up), and is originally from Vegas, where Judy rescued her from a shelter. She's since moved to Vienna, where she helps the European side of our business by keeping the scanner warm (by curling up on top of it), and making sure Dagy takes her breaks by parading in front of the computer screens, demanding to be petted. Junia is also an expert at keeping the incoming mail basket warm and cozy. In addition, Junia is trying to train Dragon Naturally Speaking to recognize her very peculiar American-Austrian accent. Junia is a dual citizen of the US and Austria and also enjoys kicking things off the desk with her right paw, especially pens. She entertains clients by meowing in the background. Do you have an adorable office assistant? We'd love to hear all about it.
