Contrary to the Chinese proverb “I gave an order to a cat, and the cat gave it to its tail.”, there are cats with jobs. Even though it seems to be common knowledge that cats@work are a contradiction in intself, some cats are at work. That is, if work is an abbreviation for work place.
In the virtual cat parks of facebook, twitter, and instagram, there are actually quite a few cats@work. One example is Colin Telford, who talks about his job on his twitter page
I’m Colin the University Cat, and it’s my job to look after UWTSD’s Mount Pleasant Campus. Colin Telford on twitter
Colin, who turned up at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David in Swansea (Wales, UK) and decided to make the library his home, has quite a job portfolio being Library Cat, Senior Student Ambassador, Social Media Cat, and Public Figure.
As a hit with the students and staff alike, Colin can be seen in real life in the library and on facebook as Telford the Cat @telfordthecat on facebook and on twitter as Colin Telford (@Colinthecat1).
Colin Telford is just one example of a cat@work. He is joined by
