    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.

    Consider this career if you:

    • Crunch numbers as mindlessly as a bowl of kibble
    • Ensure that everything is thoroughly documented and balanced
    • Keep up to date with changing Federal and State tax laws and mandates

    If you answered “yes” to all of the above, you would be a great Tax Accountant!

    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. In the past series, we looked at careers for the DOER, the THINKER, the CREATOR and the HELPER. This article, looks at the

    Organizers are cats that help maintain order in their households. Are you an Organizer?

    If you answered “c”, you are an Organizer.

  • 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? IT Technician

    This is an especially rewarding career for cats that like the warmth the computer generates, feel comfortable in a desk top environment and are early tech adapters. For example, if you had a Twitter account and were tweeting when the neighborhood cats were still chasing birds, then this might be the choice for you.

    However, this career is not for every cat. If you are the type of kitty who likes to nibble on cables, unless you have all nine of your nine lives left, maybe this isn’t such a good choice.

    Consider this career if you:

    • Can spend hours staring at a computer screen
    • Fix any problem by just sitting on it
    • Have in-depth knowledge or digital and multi-media platforms

  • 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!

  • What is the Color of Your Litterbox? Cat Opera Singer

    Listen, if you’ve got a voice there is no reason why you shouldn’t use it or let it be wasted in an alley when you could be trying out for America’s Got Talent. You might think – I can’t! I am no longer a kitten and my tail is grey, bushy and unmanageable! Well, think about the great loss we would would all have if Susan Boyle gave up because she’s got grey, bushy and unmanageable eyebrows! Your voice is a gift and you should share your gift.

    Now before you think just because you have talent, you can be a lazy bones and just lie around all day and dream about Carnegie Hall, you need to know that to be a truly great opera singer, you must practice, practice, practice. (That and having a Viking helmet and spiky bra is really all you need.) I can still hear my high school band director saying, “95% perspiration, 5% inspiration.” And this is never more true than when pursuing a career as an Opera Singer.

    As you refine your talent, you’ll find practice will begin to feel much less like work and more like a natural part of your everyday life. For example, you’ll startle yourself by realizing you are practicing your vibrato in a hallway, your volume when you want in or your pitch when you want out. And as you refine your skill and talent, you’ll find your listeners more and more appreciative.

    Consider this career if you;

    • Possess massive lung capacity
    • Communicate your feelings at a very high amplitude
    • Have purrr…fect pitch

    All of us are able to immediately recognize what we like when we see it, but few of us can actually create a look from scratch. However, if you are an Interior Designer Kitty, you know innately what needs to be done the minute your walk in a room to make that space truly and uniquely yours. Tearing just an ever so small opening in the sheer silk curtain to let the sun in just so? Shredding that new couch in just the right place to give it that purrr…fect Shabby Chic touch? Or perhaps placing that hair ball on the antique Turkish carpet in the exact right place for maximum impact?

    Consider this career if you:

    • Understand the neccessity of well placed fringe
    • Work well with a conflicting personalities
    • Strong creative skills coupled with a strong understanding of the creative process
