Does your pampered Persian princess have a talent for interior design? Does your dapper tabby harbor the soul of an opera diva? Or is your sleek Siamese with the selective palate a restaurant critic in the making? Cat career coach Ann Dziemianowicz helps our furry companions navigate the increasingly high-stakes feline job market and streamlines the kitty job-search process by giving cats the tools they need to identify skill sets and make sound employment decisions. The convenient, completely private in-home Meowers-Briggs Career/Personality Test is a unique self-assessment tool that establishes your cat’s “type”—outgoing or reserved? self-effacing or self-confident? witty or witless? Dziemianowicz then profiles thirty-four thoughtfully selected career matches. Finally, it’s time for cats realize their full potential and go to work so you can sit back, relax, and take a well-earned cat nap.
ANN DZIEMIANOWICZ is a writer and feline career counselor who is dedicated to helping cats land their dream jobs. Her three cats have gone on to much success. Fella went into law enforcement; Bibsy launched a catering business and Milton pursued a long and varied career as a lounge act in Vegas.
ANN BOYAJIAN is a former rock musician turned church choir director and book illustrator. She and her husband support two kitties in Massachusetts.
