--Cody the cat, Cat Chat with Caren & Cody, 9/5/10

Have you ever wished that your feline companions would get off the couch and contribute to your household budget? Careers for Your Cat explores what might happen if your feline charges were to join the workforce. Help your kitty take the Meowers-Briggs Personality Quiz, which is designed to provide an accurate self-assessment of your cat's personality type. Is she friendly or reserved? Whimsical or serious? Self-effacing or self-confident? Knowing the answers to those questions will help your cat find a career path which will help him utilize his full potential. Dziemianowics describes thirty-four career choices ranging from opera singer to landscape architect to marine biologist. The book includes a section of tips for acing that all important job interview, highlighting such important hints as "keep your tail high," "do not sit in your interviewer's lap," and "do not play with objects on the interviewer's desk."

Illustrated with utterly charming drawings by Ann Boyajian that made me smile and occasionally laugh out loud, this little book is a delightful, tongue-in-cheek fantasy of what the world would look like if cats were to head out into the nine to five world and leave their humans at home to relax and take those well-deserved cat naps.

If you're familiar with the Myers-Briggs personality types, you'll find this parody hilarious. The author has done a great job of analyzing cat behavior and assigning it to categories with witty or interesting names. We have two cats, and it was great fun to analyze their very different ways of spending time and responding to humans.

I bought this as a gift for my daughter and son-law who are hopeless cat lovers. I also read the book and it's a cute, clever, "one-time read" book. If you're not a cat "obsessed" person, don't buy the book. But, if you are crazy about cats, or know someone who is, it's a great little book - lots of fun.
