Adorable Cats Who Have Very Important And Very Specific Jobs

by Elana

Thousands of years ago, when humankind first domesticated cats, it was mostly to act as mousers. Having cats deal with pests on farms and near food storage was a game changer... but over time cats have become so much more than employees!

Today, cats still sometimes have important jobs, especially in rural areas and on farmland, but most cats are beloved pets above all else. They keep us company, warm our hearts, and bring us joy.

That doesn't mean cats don't still hold positions of prestige and power, professional or otherwise. Why else would Reddit have created the subreddit r/catswithjobs?
