In Case You Hadn’t Realized It – Your Kitty Can Have a Job

Many of us know how boring and tedious our jobs can be at times, but some cat parents have found the perfect solution by bringing their kitty to work with them. Any cat parent knows how important it is that their cat be happy at all times. 

Helping them find “rewarding” work can not only make them happy, it can also make them feel appreciated. And what could be better than that? Yep, there are some really talented furballs out there, even if their skills are somewhat subtle. Some are even considered successful pawfessionals.

You may have noticed some kitties in the background when people are being interviewed on TV from home. These adorable pets are clearly keeping their owners relaxed and comfortable while they do their work. Don’t you think these kittles should get some credit and maybe a paycheck? 

I would venture to say that this is a real talent, something everyone can benefit from during this stressful time. The companionship alone is worth gold, I would say. Medical doctors and mental health professionals have acknowledged for years how positively their patients respond to the affectionate nuzzling of dogs when they visit them in hospitals. 

Many cats are just as affectionate. So, if you have a family member at home who is suffering from stress or an illness, let your cat visit their room and curl up on their bed and you will be amazed at the response. This, my friend is the work of a true pawfessional! 

Cats with Actual Jobs

The timing couldn’t be better for trying to determine what your cat might enjoy in terms of a job. Now that many of us are spending more time at home with our pets due to the pandemic, we may want to try out a few things to see if we can discover what our kitty’s hidden talents might be. Along the way, you may even be able to figure out ways to include your kitty in your work. 

Here are some real-life examples of kitties with jobs, just in case you think you kitty might want to join the workforce once this pandemic is over:
