Cats are known for spending their days snoozing, but author Lisa Rogak is prepped to introduce you to 50 felines who spend their days working the 9-to-5 in her latest book, “Cats on the Job: 50 Fabulous Felines Who Purr, Mouse, and Even Sing for Their Supper.”
Featuring one of our favorite working gals, Tama the Japanese Stationmaster Cat, on its colorful cover, “Cats on the Job” hit bookstores Tuesday, and is opening the world’s eyes to cuddly coworkers who hold some highly unexpected positions.
There’s Bad, the cat who worked alongside fitness buff Stephanie Jackson as an aerobics instructor; Reverend Cassidy, a cat who became an ordained minister; Marty, a weather observer cat who worked the graveyard shift alongside his night owl human co-workers; Millie, a pretty girl who served as a Security Guard; and Cheeto, an orange feline who worked as, ironically, a dog trainer. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
Each purry profile is accompanied by a snapshot starring the kitty in question hard at work – even Mayor Stubbs, the feline politician who holds office in Alaska – proving that whiskered workers are every bit as valuable to an organization as their human counterparts!
We know what we’re asking for come the holidays.
