Get a Job! Cats in the Workforce

Man Trying To Work From Home Gets Constantly Interrupted By His Cat, Tricks  It Into Being Calm By Placing A Box On His Desk | Bored Panda

We are very excited that our Mom has finally gotten a new job! She’ll be working days and only has to work one job to support us in our accustomed lifestyle. In honor of that, we decided to look at cats with jobs. As you know, lots of cats have jobs. We add class and sophistication to many places. Basically, there are two major types of employed kitties: “Office Cats” and “Working Cats”. (Mom says she’ll be “working” in an “office,” so we’re a little confused about where she would fit in this post.)

Personally, we have no desire to work outside the home. However, there are many kitties in shelters who would be wonderful additions to an office. Among the advantages of having an office cat:

We are calming – Petting cats is known to lower human stress levels. Our purring is therapeutic. What could be better than having a cute ball of fur to stroke during a stressful day? Just seeing our furry little faces makes people smile.

We encourage teamwork – Having an office kitty is a team project. Even if one person is mainly responsible, everyone comes together to take care of the office cat. Who can resist a non-judgmental teammate?

We help prevent burnout – People are encouraged to take short breaks when the office cat comes by wanting attention. Or it’s a good excuse to get up from your desk if you’re struggling with a problem. Short breaks have been proven to help workers recharge and refocus. And we can help type.

We increase morale – Helping kitties makes humans feel better about themselves. And keeping us out of the shelter is definitely helping.

Of course, just like humans not all kitties belong in offices. In fact, some kitties would just as soon not be around people. But that doesn’t mean that they aren’t excellent workers.

Working cats are experts in vermin control – They find jobs in barns, warehouses, corporate campuses, plant nurseries, wineries, and other places where rodents and other pests are a problem. Working cats also get jobs in stores and churches, although sometimes those require more socialized kitties.

We are ecologically friendly and pesticide-free – No need for chemicals if you have a cat (or two) around.

We are low-maintenance – All we really need is a permanent shelter where we are safe from the elements and other dangers, food, water, and litter.

What is important about all cats with jobs is that they are cats who are safe and loved (even if it’s from a distance). Every cat who has a position is a kitty who is out of the shelters and off the streets.

  1. Any one of those reasons would be sufficient reason for a cat to be employed in a human workplace. Technically we cats could run things for the humans, but seems like they just not prepared to take the risk? Still whilst they have opposable thumbs, they can keep the job, MOL

  2. I would love every store, office and specialty working olace to have a ct who is about business each day! Business owners have no idea how much foot traffic would increase if they had a cat as Manager.

  4. Congrats to your mom on the new job!! These are all very cute kitties, but cats should not have to work. You just need to give cuddles and purrs. Xo

  5. Huge concatulations to your Mama!! We wish her tons of good luck! What great jobs for kitties are posted here! One of Roary’s nicknames is “Professor Marshmallow” so our Roary moonlights as a professor. MOL.

  6. I love this post! Thank you- your posts always make me feel better! I haven’t been able to post for days- but i will be back. Hubby’s memorial service is this week and i am having a hard time focusing on anything. I will be back – right now I just have to get through this week. Blessings to you- contacts on your new job! What a huge blessing!

    • Thank you! My best wishes for the memorial. They’re both wonderful and awful. The support is awesome, but it’s so depressing to have to do it.

      • Yes, it is. Bittersweet. The whole family was here and they really spoiled me. It was wonderful – and wonderful to see old friends. But the house is still empty when I come home. Thank God for cats.
