|Do I look like I'm working?|
Happy Labor Day to my friends in the U.S. and Happy Labour Day to my Canadian friends! Connor here for Mancat Monday.
Hey, did you know there are cats who actually work? I helped Mama do some research, and it’s really not that unusual to find cats that help people and other animals.
Here’s a story Catster did about the top categories of work for cats: “On Labor Day, We Celebrate Cats with Careers.”
There are even books about cats who work, including “Cats on the Job,” by Lisa Rogak. We haven’t read it, but it looks like a book we need to read.
I was getting a little worried, thinking maybe I needed to buy a tie and get a job somewhere. But Mama said there are many ways to work that don’t even feel like work.
She said us cats are doing good work just by being ourselves. When she gets home from her job, she said seeing us and petting us and listening to our stories make her smile. When she’s not feeling good and one of us lays beside her and looks up at her, she starts feeling better. Just watching us play and interact is fascinating and helps her feel grateful, she said.
So all we have to do is just play and nap and purr, and we’re working? That’s cool. I didn’t really want to go out and get a job anyway.
Now I need to talk to Mama about salary.
