Cats With Jobs

There's a program on the Animal Planet channel called Dogs With Jobs. You know the type: loyal Labradors rescue swimmers, herding dogs telling sheep what to do etc. But did you know that many cats also have jobs? Of course these occupations are all by choice....

Here's a few from my own pictures and off the web. My cat Bamboo is a professional kitchen organizer. She's giving old spices the sniff test and probably pointing out that oregano five years and older ought to be pitched.

Henry is our yellow cat who came to live with us two years ago. He is our official neighborhood greeter and here is checking on a tribe of Maine Coon cats, who mostly live indoors with our neighbor Mike Galyon. Or maybe he's going, "Nananana...I'm in the yard and you're not! " Many quilters are owned by cats so understand that the occupations listed here are only secondary to their main job which is quilt testing. Please meet Sally Bramald (her blog is and her handsome gray tabby cat Silvester. He is a yoga instructor in England.

This quilt passed! The lovely tuxedo kitty is giving a satisfied smile of approval to one of Julie Mullins' quilts. See more of Julie's work on her website

Thank you for mentioning my blog, however Sinclair has asked for a correction, his name is not Sylvester and he is not just a tabby, but a British Shorthair, spotted (LOLS)

My sincere apologies to Mr. Sinclair, both for mis-naming and for type-casting him as a common tabby.

He has graciously accepted your apology (grin).
He looks a little less civilised today after playing with wool batting and chasing squirrels in the garden.

Looks like Bamboo and Henry are very well employed!
