You might know the phrase “like herding cats” became an office motto used whenever getting a job done became an exercise in managing chaos or at least multiple (and often uncooperative) moving parts.

Since that video aired, you’ve heard “like herding cats” used in real life and in sitcoms like The Office. Today, people use the phrase to describe not only a difficult work situation, but more positively to give kudos to someone who can lead and handle the unexpected and uncontrollable that life throws our way. It’s also considered a skill workers use when leading a group toward a goal.
Well, that’s not unlike what we do here at Kitten Sittin’ of Delaware! Part of our job description is to herd cats, literally and figuratively!
