Cats With Jobs: 5 Cats Who Landed Their Dream Job
Some cats get to spend most of their days lying around the house and doing nothing. And this sounds like a dream job to us! Others, however, are hard at work. Check out these 5 cats who landed their dream jobs!
1. The Cab Driver Cat
Meet Alexander and his cat Tee. Tee is Alexander's side kick while he drives a cab in Ukraine. Tee is very sociable and loves cuddling up to people. The customers love him too, as he is an instant mood booster! We can only dream of experiencing this ride share!
2. The Dog Trainer Cat
This cute cat named D-O-G has a rather surprising occupation. D-O-G works as a dog trainer in Support Dogs, Inc. - a training center for dogs in Saint Louis. Assistance dogs need to be comfortable near other animals and keep their focus even when distractions abound. And D-O-G provides plenty of distractions! The trainer cat plays with the dogs' tails, sleeps in their beds and drinks from their bowls. All this helps assistance dogs become well-behaved and able to help people who are deaf or have mobility problems. Playing with dogs while staying well-fed and hydrated - now that's a job we'd love to have!

Meet Sable - the 15-year-old cat from West Richand, Washington, who guards the school kids as they cross the street. Every day twice a day Sable will walk to the nearby street corner and make sure the kids cross the street safely. His curious nature drew him to the line of kids crossing the street twice daily, and now he routinely stands on the street corner - a habit that earned him the nickname "the crossing guard cat". Thank you, Sable, for keeping an eye on the little ones!
4. The Cat Nurse

Oscar puzzled patients and doctors alike with his ability to "predict" death and comfort patients in their final hours. Oscar was a therapy cat in the dementia unit in a nursing and rehabilitation home in Rhode Island. According to the doctors at the unit, he was a rather scaredy cat, but he would go out of his hiding spot and crawl up to dying patients for comfort.
