Description

An ode to the feline in your life, Hardworking Cats shows cats are much less lazy than we give them credit for. It’s not all just sleeping in sunspots, curling up on laps, and looking adorable. Our cats are just as motivated as we are to get a good day’s work done. The next time one of your dog-loving friends (shudder) asks you “What’s your cat even good for other than lying around?” you can answer with a long list of one hundred different jobs your cat can do, including:

Official greeter, waiting for you at the door
Exterminator, ridding you of those pesky pests
Interior decorator, achieving that messy yet chic look
Furniture stripper, because who really needs upholstery anyway
Comedian, providing you with laughs at just the right moment
Food critic, letting you know you accidentally bought the wrong flavor
Yoga practitioner, making sure to stay in shape with extra-long stretches
Job supervisor, keeping an eye out for any goofing off during gardening season
Data entry typist, showing you don’t actually need to use real words to get your meaning across
And many more

Lovingly illustrated with one hundred original illustrations, cat-lovers of all ages will enjoy finding which jobs their cat does best.
