Cats on the Job: 50 Fabulous Felines Who Purr, Mouse, and Even Sing for Their Supper by Lisa Rogak

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A lovely collection of stories of cats in gainful occupations amidst their human companions!

True stories of the crossing-guard cat Sable and the diabetic-alert cat Pippa show more than a little awareness of themselves and others in our feline friends. I’ve come to learn this in experiences with Lucy, who adopted my home and me, many years ago. Lucy is of course mistress of the home now.

While the book describes felines assisting humans, there are many instances of cats saving others, their humans, while throwing themselves in harm’s way. Most recently, seen in a video circulated widely, a pet cat saved her child companion from a vicious canine attack. This fearless warrior threw herself at the canine, scratched his face, causing him to let go of the toddler’s leg he had clamped his jaws on. After the dog let go, she made sure to chase him away before following her human who ran back home. Lisa Rogak’s stories add much more to such love cats show us all.

‘Cats on the Job,’ which I received in a Goodreads First Reads Giveaway, is an enjoyable and easy read. Full color pictures provide pleasing visuals within. Recommended to animal lovers everywhere!
