Take Your Cat to Work Day

Did you know that there’s a special kitty holiday around the corner? June 22nd is Take Your Cat To Work Day! Here, a Marietta, GA vet discusses taking your cat to work.

Kitties on the Job

Believe it or not, cats have actually held some pretty distinguished positions in the past. Britain has hired several felines as official Mousers, while an Alaskan town actually elected a kitty as mayor. Our feline pals have also been found working on many farms, where their hunting skills are in great demand. Fluffy can also often be found in nursing homes, hospitals, and hospices, offering comfort to distressed and sick patients.

Benefits of Taking Fluffy To Work

Cats are amazing at entertaining us and helping us relax, even on bad days. It’s hard to get stressed out when there’s a purring cat sitting on your desk! Fluffy is also very cute. The presence of an adorable feline may very well help brighten up a long day, and put smiles on your coworkers’ faces.

Fluffy’s Job Search

There are some areas where cats can really be a great fit. Your kitty may be a great candidate for a job in a small office or bookstore, where she can spend the day napping and supervising you. Needless to say, if your workplace is loud, crowded, strict, or dangerous, you may be better off leaving your cat at home.

Getting Fluffy Hired

Before taking Fluffy to work, make sure to get permission from your boss. It may not be a bad idea to get it in writing. Check with your co-workers as well. Not everyone is as smitten by cats as we are. Some may be allergic to our feline pals, or even frightened of them.

Kitty Shenanigans

Even if you do get permission, keep your pet’s purrsonality in mind. Many kitties are homebodies, who will be much happier staying at home in their own domains and spending the day napping and looking cute. If you have a bold, friendly, fearless cat, Fluffy may not mind going to work. Just keep in mind that your feline buddy will probably spend the day stealing chairs, knocking things off desks, eating the office plants, and napping on reports.
