Professional Cats

The 365 Cat Ladies Spring Celebration Giveaway asks:
If your cat had a profession what would it be?

Buttonwillow (pictured here) would be a professional fireplace and furnace tester. All autumn and winter long she very conscientiously inspects a unit, testing it from every possible angle for sufficient BTUs, comfort zones, and aesthetic considerations. It is very seasonal work, so in the summer she switches to professional sunbeam tester.

Among our other entries, a number of felines prefer professions in the arts:

Cat Lady Sara E. reports: My kitten Athena would be a perfect deejay! one of her favorite games is stepping on the buttons of my clock radio, turning the songs on and off - and has been known to race across the room to turn off songs she doesn't care for.

Professional Cat Ducky Doo tells us: My sister Patches is most definitely a ballet dancer. She'll dance on command for her favorite human, well maybe only when she wants to eat and the human has the can in hand.

Law Enforcement also seems to be a common thread:

Magpie reports: We call our cat "The Sheriff". I almost bought him a tiny badge once, but alas he refuses to wear his uniform so has nowhere to pin it. He oversees every detail of the goings on around the house, especially every move our other cat makes. He doesn't hesitate to step in if she does something wrong. He's actually quite annoying about the whole thing, but he doesn't see it that way. I think he feels it's his job to make sure everything runs in perfect order

KittyLady says: My Rowdy is always pouncing on the other kitties and us. He would be the perfect drill sargent. He makes sure the others on on their toes and keeps them in shape. We always get reminded on feeding time and he wakes us up.

Cat Lady Luanne of Rusty Dawg Pet Products tells us: Hemi, my seal point Himmy, would be a Police Officer! She's known as the "fun police" around here and any time one of the other kitties is playing she just has to give them the look and they stop! If they don't stop, she gives them a slappin'!
