With ever-growing economic pressure being felt in every strata of society, finally, an illustrated feline career guide to help cats reach their potential as fully contributing members of their households.

The first of its kind, this indispensable and inspirational feline career guide is for the lazy, free-loading fat cat, who, in these thin times, needs to get out of the house and start making house payments. Cat-coaching expert Ann Dziemainowicz has carefully selected and profiled approximately 35 career options from opera singer to landscape architect to restaurant critic, each vivaciously illustrated with witty line drawings by Ann Boyajian. Also featured is the Meowers-Briggs Personality Quiz, a key tool developed to accurately assess feline career types and skill sets and, ultimately, inform and streamline the kitty job-search process in an increasingly competitive job market. Included is a bonus section on useful interview tips for the naturally reserved applicant (example: Don’t hide under the recruiter’s desk), as well as the less inhibited interviewee (example: No claw sharpening on a prospective employer’s carpet).
