Ten pet lover backgrounds for Microsoft Team and other online meetings

Reading Time: 3 minutes

If you’re anything like me, you have spent  A LOT, like a mind-numbing amount, of time in Microsoft Team meetings lately.

And, like me, you might also be seeking a way to spice up the meeting bit or bring some of your personality to the forum.

That’s why I created some free pet-related backgrounds that you can download and install in Microsoft Teams or use for backgrounds in other virtual meetings.

So, here they are. Choose the one you like best or download them all and mix it up from one meeting to another.

Example of this background in use during a meeting.
  1. Our Mid-Century Modern Cat Background should bring a nice retro vibe to any virtual meeting.

And, if your real kitty tries to join in during a meeting–as many cats seem to love to do–his or her meeting cameo appearance might be less of a distraction.

2. Pop Art Donut Cat (inspired by the work of Andy Warhol) might just be the background for your next morning meeting. The combo of cats, donuts and bright colors should have even non-morning people smiling.

3. Professional cats conference. Here’s a background showing some fluffy business professionals joining in on your conference.

4. Brick House With Cats. You can also download the background that says to the world, “I’d rather be home with my cats… Oh, wait, I am.”

5. Beach Window With Cats. Or, you can incorporate a nice beach atmosphere with these three cute kitties in the window background.

6. Abstract Cat and Butterfly. This next one may serve two purposes: Hopefully, it will make others smile, and maybe it will also serve as a subtle reminder to all to keep the meeting moving so everyone can get out and enjoy the outdoors as soon as it’s over.

7.  Koi Pond. Of course, we don’t want to forget other types of pets, so here’s a lovely koi pond that will likely help bring a little tranquility to your meetings.

8. Puppy Pattern. If your dog is anything like ours are, an online meeting means, ‘Hey, it’s time to bark.’ But, these little fellas should be nice and quiet, and, hopefully, a great hit with the group in your next online discussion.

9 and 10. Our White and Black Fur Background and our Pink and Black Fur Background are both classic ways of showing your love for all kinds of furry friends.

  1. Thank you. That gives me an idea. A fishing boat in the water would be really neat! That might be up next. 🙂
