Cat Lands Job as Tchotchke
 The job economy,...

The job economy, though showing signs of recovery, is still tough. That’s why Selene the cat was thrilled to find work recently as a tchotchke. 

"The work is hard, the hours are long, and the pay is relatively low," said  close friend Chloe McDrue, “but she’s just happy to be back at work."

Selene had been out of a job for over 15 months and had all but given up applying when she saw the ad on Craigslist for a “living feline shelf adornment."

"She couldn’t believe that was even a thing," said McDrue. “She emailed the poster anyway, but really expected it was some sort of scam."

It turned out, though, that the advertisement was completely legit. A wealthy family had just redecorated their living room and was looking for a unique way to accessorize. The cat is being paid to sit on the shelf each day from 8 AM until 10 PM, with an hour break for lunch.
