Cat Jobs

There were questions yesterday about whether or not Pandora helps mum with her blogging. (She does sometimes, as we all do, but she especially likes to lay on the laptop for the warmth if she can sneak onto it.) All us cats have special jobs around the house to help mum out.

Pandora is the big Boss Cat, even though she is the smallest in size of us. (She's only 3.8kg/8lbs.) She takes her duties seriously and is especially good at keeping watch out the front window for other kitty intruders. She also makes sure that mum gets us our food on time in the morning and the evening. For this work she usually gets first dibs on cuddles with mum.

Zowie is the official Clean Litter Box Tester. After mum cleans our boxes she goes into each one to make sure that it is nice and clean for us. She also is very good at chasing flies (though I don't think she eats them), and keeping the plants trimmed. She gets her special cuddle time every night just before mum goes to bed. Mum says that she gets so happy that her nose drips!

As I'm the new kid on the block, my job is a pretty easy one. I mostly just get to help out where I want to. So I look after my sisters and keep watch for mum. I also like to warm her feet at night by sleeping on her toes. I get to help Pandora with food notification duties and she has been teaching me how. Mum thinks that my meows are getting louder, so Pandora must be a pretty good teacher. And of course I am the official kitchen snooperviser with my post on top of the pagoda house. For my duties I get treats, cuddles, and especially cheek rubs and ear scritches! And I get belly rubs if I ask too.

And as you can tell, our mum has work to do too. She does a good job of taking care of us and loving us so we are very lucky kitties indeed!

I think you have the best job Percy! I have to do all those jobs around my place because I'm an only cat at the moment.

Pandora must be feeling fine and for that we are glad. Lucky Percy,
2 beauties to help you with the household. But of course, you are an amazingly handsome mankitty.

It is nice that you divide the work up!

You all work very hard and I hope you get to take lots of naps when required!

You are lucky that you have your mum to love you and she is lucky to have you all. Mum laughed at the nose drip bit. I dribble with happiness when I am purring at cuddles.

I am a working cat too Percy. It is my job to sleep on my mums feets, and to furminate the laundry.

I am glad you all have important jobs, your mum must be so proud.
