I'm a proud pet owner of 3 cats and 1 dog, and have no problems admitting it to just about anyone. I show off pictures, and even have it in my Etsy shop profile that we have a "pet-friendly" home.
However, it can sometimes create more work for me when it comes to running a business from my home office. I meticulously run lint rollers over my items, usually once before printing and then twice before shipping/delivering.
That being said, sometimes you just plain miss one or two stray hairs! It stinks, but it's part of having an office with pets.
There's also this, which I discovered yesterday while getting ready to work some more on a beautiful rug:
Needless to say, I was slightly unhappy with our youngest cat! ;)
My guess is that I'll be using many many sheets off the lint roller for this particular project...
