Kitty Servant (Craigslist job posting)
My lovely friend Meghan sent me this job ad. Uh, not only am I seriously tempted to apply, I would just do this for free. I am so glad that everyone I know is fully aware of my feline obsession and often even encouraging.
I am cat-sitting yet again for another one of my friends. People love to ask me now because they know I will take the best care ever of their little babies.
Pickles & I are having a blast.
