or something that can be swatted

i had never seen these business cat cartoons online ( because i am too old to keep up with the internet, but when i saw this book i knew i had to have it.

and it did not disappoint.

the joke is simple, but genius: put a human-sized cat in an office setting and make him king boss.

it’s not too far a leap into fantasy – cats are already in charge in our hearts and homes, so why not in our corporations?

it’s true there would be some difficulties in teaching them proper executive comportment

and business trips could be tricky

but i think it would ultimately be very good for big business. it is impossible to say “no” to a cat, after all, so meetings would be quick and to the point, with some napping and maybe a little snuggling.

there are many situations spotlighting those cat behaviors that are both adorable and infuriating to cat “owners” in a domestic setting, but would be even more exasperating coming from your boss.

you thought your co-workers were bad…

and while there are times when the same general punchline recurs

it doesn’t really affect the enjoyment because giant cat in suit is funny enough to giggle at twice. at least.

my only complaint is that some of these cartoons are stretched to two pages and would have been funnier if only the first panel had been used

but for the most part, these are great. i’m hoping to land my dream job soon, and if this is what i see when i go into an interview:

i will know i have found my home.

after all, i’m already well-suited to combining cat and work – i have my own executive maggie

who goes in and does her job even when she should be taking medical leave

“sick days are for pussies!! claw at that glass ceiling! especially if there’s a bird on the other side.”

we’re learning to share the office space, and i work very hard to obey her every directive.

this feels gauche, but when i announced i was starting a blog, everyone assured me this is a thing that is done. i’m not on facebook, i’ve never had a cellphone or listened to a podcast; so many common experiences of modern life are foreign to me, but i’m certainly struggling financially, so if this is how the world works now, i’d be foolish to pass it up. any support will be received with equal parts gratitude and bewilderment.
