RED. I am just full of fun facts, don'tcha know?). The title of the book was Careers For Your Cat. I looked around. I seem to be the only cat around here. I came to the conclusion that the book was meant for ME. What nerve! I HAVE a job! Geeze...my Mom has been out of work for 3 years due to the economy (or so she likes to say....ha!! Kidding!! That was a joke Mom! Feel free to laugh at any time!!) and Dad just retired in June. My Sheltie brother thinks he has a job, barking at every sound, object or person known to man.
I HAVE A JOB! Who do you think is responsible for Cat Chat? ME! I am the brains behind Cat Chat! Without me there would be no Cat Chat!
Well, with it being Labor Day and all I decided to pretend that I don't have a job and took a look at the book. This book is really, really clever and cool! There is no other book out there like this one! It was written by Ann Dziemianowicz (now THAT is a mouthful of kibble for ya! Sorry Ann! I had to have my Mom type that one for me! Let her get in trouble if it is misspelled, not MOI!). Ann is a cat-coaching expert and a cat-career expert (a "cat career expert?" I never knew there was such an animal). She has helped all kinds of kitties get viable employment. That is pretty impurrsive!!
I had my Mom help me turn the pages and we saw a special test called the "Meowers-Briggs Personality Quiz". You take this quiz with your kitty parent (so they can check the boxes for you) and it tells you what your purrsonality is.
I think my Mom made a mistake when she was marking down the answers that I told her because it said that I am "Inert Introvert/Extravert". (I tested really close on one part so that is why I came out as Introvert/Extravert). The good part is that gave me more careers to choose from!
The book says I should be a Security Guard (sorry but we have my Sheltie brother for that!), a Solar Technician (yeah I do love to lay in the sun and show my belleh), a Software Engineer (I love to paw around with my Mom's 'puter and printer) or a Product Tester. (I will test any product that is food related!!)
I also love to greet everyone at the door, shake paws and let them rub my belleh so I would make a good Politician!
Hmmm...now that I am thinking about it I don't recall there being any careers for us writer kitties! Maybe cause we furlance and don't bring home a regular purrcheck.....I bet that is why!
The drawings in this book are super cute, my Mom and I really loved looking at all of the cats with all of their various jobs. The drawings were done by Ann Boyajian who must be a very clever lady cause these were some really funny and creative illustrations!
There is even a section for kitties nervous about having a job interview. It tells you how to have a purrfect interview every time and gives you advice to enable you to pounce on that career that you really, really want!
If I ever stop being the inspiration and brawn for Mom's blog then I might just have to try out one of the careers listed in Careers For Your Cat.
For now, for any of you kits who might be just lolling around watching TV, birds and who lie in front of the window sunbathing all day, you may want to get your paws on Careers For Your Cat so you can bring home some bucks for some extra kibble or shrimp. Tell your human or parent they can buy you the book at http://www.tenspeed.com/ or if they like to tweet on Twitter they can follow Ann @Careers4YourCat
Happy Labor Day All!!
