Locals Working From Home Share Adorable Pics of Their Fluffy Co-Workers

Written by:

It’s no secret that we are living in challenging times as of the past week or so — Hoboken and Jersey City have confirmed cases of  COVID-19 and many companies have encouraged or required employees to work from home in response to growing concerns about the virus. Now, it can get lonely working from home — it’s you, your laptop, and maybe the faint sound of the TV or a podcast in the background. But fear not, as many of us do have one little co-worker we can still count on {and maybe snuggle with} — our pets!

To start a new, uplifting series on HobokenGirl.com, we reached out to our readers in our Facebook group to share some of their furry, four-legged coworkers keeping them company during these trying times. Meet some of the pets {and check back every Monday for some new furry faces — please submit your pets to hello@hobokengirl.com}:

Arielle is a born-and-bred Jersey girl and like a true NJ native, half her diet consists of bagels and the other half pizza. As a graduate of both American University and City, University of London, she’s been a passionate writer ever since she wrote her first “book” in the first grade. When she’s not furiously typing away at her keyboard, she spends her time ticking places off of her “to travel to” list, trying any and all new foods, and trying to stop herself from spending too much money at Zara.
