“If you aren’t wearing cat hair, you’re doing it wrong”

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.
