Although this might seems incredible, some cats don’t shy away from getting their paws dirty! And to prove that they got more important things to do than enchanting their human friends with their purrs, below there are some of the best pictures of the most hardworking felines. There have been numerous cats who held real jobs as well. For example, when Empirical Brewery in Chicago noticed that their grain is being eaten by rodents and insects, they started thinking about the best way to solve this problem and decided to get four cats who now stroll around the about 740 square meters brewery and look for anything they can catch! Or do you remember the sailor cat Simon, who even got a military medal? However, cats can hold other positions, too. Most of us have heard of therapy cats, and in fact they can apply for this job as well. There is a beautiful story and great example of that. A woman was paired with a 6-year-old girl who lives with Autism, and the situation has improved for the better ever since. Some help their owners promote a garage sale, some are busy mousekeeping, but no matter big or small, their efforts are always appreciated!

3# The “bookseller” cat
Experts say that this method of pest control is much more cost effective and humane. The use of cat eliminates the need for harsh chemicals and poisons, which is better for the environment. As for the humans, the introduction of cats to a vermin-ridden area alone can eliminate pests without any killing: the feline scent and droppings alone are enough to drive out rodents, because rats won’t even reproduce near their natural predators.
