Of course, cats are domestic animals, does anyone argue with this? Not one thousand years ago, they entered into an agreement with a man to protect his home from rodents and since then have been living side by side with us, delighting with their beauty and gentle purring. However, time does not stand still, and today many cats, apparently, are already bored with the role of pets. Moustached-striped strive for self-realization!
And what else can explain the numerous stories about cats that work in offices and hospitals, at factories and train stations, on ships and at airports … Well, there you can even meet a police cat today! We are absolutely serious. The young Englishwoman Eliza Adamson-Hopper from the city of Durham wrote a letter to the chief of the local police, in which she offered to hire cats. Eliza is sure that cats can help in finding people no worse than service dogs do!
I must say that the chief police officer of Durham, Michael Barton, took the idea of the girl with all seriousness: he promised to deal closely with the issue of employment of cats and give a corresponding instruction to the instructor for official dog breeding. And all because Mr. Barton is his own man: at the end of a letter to Eliza, he painted his favorite cat, nicknamed Joy.
In the USA, the case involving cats to work in the police is also known. True, the specialty of one of these overseas purrs is completely different: the cat Morticia from South Carolina, possibly, will be accepted into the staff of the local police department for the position of… psychotherapist. The owner of the cat, investigator Margaret Fisher, is confident that positive feline energy can beneficially influence people who have experienced strong feelings, which, in turn, will help investigators in their criminal investigations.
But in the Japanese company “Ferrey” has already hired cats to work! Yes, not just one, but nine: the owners of the company believe that cats in the office help employees relieve stress during the workday.
Fluffy employees live right in the office. Judging by this photo, they even learned how to answer the phone :).
And judging by this – work with photocopy :).
The company management does not mind working at home: if an employee takes the cat home, he will be paid a monthly fee of $ 42.
Do you think that working cats are just a foreign wonder? Not at all! In Serpukhov, near Moscow, a real cat doorman lives and works. His name is Marai. The place of his employment is the Museum of History and Art, and Marai receives his salary with cutlets and fish since he does not like cat food.
Since we are talking about salaries, we have to admit that the highest-paid cat employees are, of course, not porters from Russia or even office clerks from Japan. Models – that’s who gets the worldwide fame and fabulous fees! The story of Grumpy Cat – “Angry Cat”, aka Tardar Sauce, is known to everyone. In just three years, the cat with a sad expression on her face earned $ 100 million for her mistress Tabata Bandsen.
They say the truth: “face trading,” that is, a muzzle — a profitable business!
