Dogs aren't the only pets that have jobs. This might come as a surprise, but some cats don't shy away from getting their paws dirty as well. And to prove that they got more important things to do than knocking stuff over, people are posting pictures of the most hardworking felines. Some help their owners promote a garage sale, some are busy mousekeeping, but no matter big or small, their efforts are always appreciated. Scroll down to enjoy the pics and upvote your faves!

The Incredible Nursing Cat

The Incredible Nursing Cat

Rademenesa was diagnosed with an inflamed respiratory tract when he was 2 months old. He survived the ordeal and now lives at the animal shelter and keeps other sick animals company and tries to nurse them back to health

There have been numerous cats who held real jobs as well. For example, when Empirical Brewery in Chicago noticed that their grain is being eaten by rodents and insects, they started thinking about the best way to solve this problem and decided to get four cats who now stroll around the 8,000 square foot brewery and look for anything they can catch.

Experts say that this method of pest control is much more cost effective and humane. The use of cat eliminates the need for harsh chemicals and poisons, which is better for the environment. As for the humanity of it, the introduction of cats to a vermin-ridden area alone can eliminate pests without any killing — the feline scent and droppings alone are enough to drive out rodents, because rats won’t even reproduce near such predators.

But cats can hold other positions, too. Most of us have heard of therapy dogs, but cats can apply for this job as well. Thula is a great example of that. She was paired with a 6-year-old girl named Iris who lives with Autism, and the situation has improved for the better ever since.
