While most cats have a mind of their own and don`t appear to give a crap about anything except themselves there are some furry felines out there that are working cats with day jobs and make a contribution to helping other animals and people everyday.
It is common to see dogs with jobs such as police dogs, airport dogs, guide dogs and more but it is very rare to see working cats with jobs and responsibility. So we have put together a collection of ten working cats that have day jobs. This will probably come as a surprise to most people, but no matter big or small the animal, their efforts are always appreciated.
1. The Nursing Cat
This is Radamenes, a very caring black cat that helps looking after sick animals at a Polish veterinary center. He is always on hand to cuddle, massage and sometimes even clean other animals recovering from their wounds and operations.
He was actually rescued and saved by the vets at the clinic and returns the favor by caring the other sick animals. How cute is that.
2. Mousekeeping Cat
Meet Pál Dánielsdóttir, Island`s most famous cat. This small tabby cat is currently the Mousekeeper at Fosshótel at Hellnar village on Snæfellsnes peninsula. She is so good at hunting and catching mice that the hotel chain is now considering employing more cats for their other hotels across the country.
3. Library Cat
This is Browser, a working cat that currently resides at the White Settlement library in Texas. You maybe surprised to learn that cats actually have a long history of working in libraries all over the world. They are used to prevent rodents from chewing up and destroying valuable books.
4. Receptionist Cat
