    William the Cat gets worms. Animated. Illustration by Lynn Chang.

    Monrovia, California–This story is true and particularly disgusting. So if you get grossed out easily, do not read on. I can guarantee you won’t like it. William, a grey, striped, blue tabby was found with worms today. This was evidenced by a worm coming out of his bum that resembled a piece of rice, except it moved in a particularly revolting manner. Why? Why? must it look like rice I ask you?

    Thankfully this will be remedied soon by picking up some medication at William’s vet which thankfully can be purchased without having William present. The vet’s office declined my offer to bring in a worm sample.

    Most kitties, with the exception of Sphynx cats, are born with an abundance of fur. Long fur, short fur, black fur, brown fur, orange fur, yellow fur. Fur that sheds during the summer and during the winter. During the spring and during the fall. Fur that collects in big dust balls under the furniture, in the corners of your home and on expensive dry-clean only garments. What to do with all that fur? Be a hairdresser that’s what.

    Consider this career if you;

    • Wish to spend hours grooming yourself and others
    • Embrace the beauty of a good hairball
    • Possess an outstanding sense of style and interested in creating your own line of hair-care products.

    Although it is ironic that accounting jobs are plentiful despite the weak economy, there is no reason, that a kitty can’t take advantage of this expanding field. And if financial statements, collecting W2’s and the prospect of cooking the books appeals to you this may very well be the career path for you.

    • Crunch numbers as mindlessly as a bowl of kibble

    You may be looking at the title of this blog, and then looking at the image above. You then may ask yourself, what does a cat in a Football outfit have to do with organizing! Well, we think that’s a good question and we’re not sure either but we’re really open to your interpretations.
    This is part of a series for kitties looking for some employment in these tough economic times. That’s because we truly believe, with a little elbow grease, you can beat the current 9.8% unemployment rate.

  • What is the Color of Your Litterbox? Cat Realtor

    When you dream of the utopian world, do you dream that there is chicken and tuna in every pot and there is a warm bed and lap for every kitty? Does this imagery give you that warm and fuzzy feeling inside and make your tummy look and feel even more fuzzy?? If so, a REALTOR is the career for you.

    Although the real estate market is currently slow, hard working kitties can still find great success in this field – you just need to be creative. When showing a house, you need not only point out the number of bedrooms or bathrooms. How about that window that has a great view where you can see other neighborhood cats and freak out? The number of closets you can hide in when guests come over where no one can find you for hours and think you’ve somehow got out and run away? A counter top that doesn’t show tell-tale paw prints for those midnight raids? So many appealing features that might otherwise go unnoticed!

    Consider this career if you;

    • Embrace a frantic pace in your life
    • Feel at home putting on a show in any home
    • Enjoy building long-term, win-win relationships

  • What is the Color of Your Litterbox? Purrr…sonal Assistant

    A Purrr…sonal assistant is both the hardest and simplest job imaginable. Obvious tasks like following your human from room to room will be no stretch for your walnut sized brain. But, you’ll definitely need your extrasensory perception (ESP) skills for the more difficult aspect of this job; anticipating your human’s needs – even when they don’t realize they have a need. For example, what to do if your human is going down the stairs carrying a large load of laundry and needs an extra paw? Trust your intuition. Quick! Run down with them, as fast as you can go, at an angle and between their legs if possible. Remember “Six legs good! Two legs bad!” This type of anticipatory help will always be greatly appreciated in moments like this, making a career as a Purrr…sonal Assistant particularly rewarding.

    Consider this career if you;

    • Exist for everyone else but yourself
    • Possess the ability to manage multiple projects with attention to detail
    • Are a self-starter that energizes people around you
  • What is the Color of Your Litterbox? Are you a Helper?

    If you’re not a DOER, a THINKER or a CREATOR and at you realize you are not a HELPER – you’re starting to run out of options fuzzbutt. So, if you’re one of those cats that can’t make any decision at some point you have to chose something. Why you ask? Well have you read the papers recently? Reality check. The economy is going down and the gravy train is coming to an end. That’s why.

    In times like this, the kitties, the key is self-sufficiency. Otherwise you know where you might end up? The alley! Is that what you want?

    So listen now and listen good. No one said a job was going to be easy. The good news is that maybe you’re a HELPER. Read on and see if this is the right path for you.

    Are you a Helper?

    When you encounter a messy dinner plate you tend to:

    • Bury it to hide the smell
    • Clean it thoroughly to prepare it for the dishwasher
    • Knock it onto the floor and play with the broken pieces
    • Ignore it and go take a nap

    If you answered “bury it” or “knock it to the floor”, you are a Helper.

  • What is the Color of Your Litterbox? Cat Chef

    If you like to eat, able to distinguish between a no-name cat food and your favorite exponentially more expensive brand and you’re willing to taste new things, like the take out Chicken Tikka Masala that someone left on the counter then a CHEF might be the career for you.

    Despite the fact that cats are well known for their discriminating palettes, there are relatively few cat chefs in currently in the marketplace. If you don’t believe me, when is the last time you saw a cat on Hell’s Kitchen? And why not? You’re quick, nimble and you could easily give Chef Ramsay a few new ways on how to express yourself when you don’t get what you want.

    As you are deciding where your passions lie, we suggest exploring new cuisines or taking a cooking class or two. What’s nice to know that wherever this career path leads you: short order cook, restaurateur about town or cat-erer, there is nothing more satisfying than to serve or be served a good meal.

    Consider this career if you:

    • Enjoy eating and drinking to an excess
    • Look great in an apron
    • Can julienne better than Julia Child

    Not a CREATOR? Maybe you are a HELPER!
