My secret profession



Many humans seem to assume cats, unlike dogs, are useless pets.  Well, we just let them think that way, unlike dogs, we are discreet creatures and not into showing off.  However since you, my dear readers, are special, I will let you in on the real, professional side of myself. 



Like my daddy, I am an IT specialist.  I am my mum's assistant and control the scanner and make sure everything is in order.  I watch each paper with my eagle eyes, well.. feline eyes.  If a paper comes out crooked, I correct it immediately.  Now take a look at me hard at work... the intensity.. the precision... never mind my little slip in the middle, when you are in total concentration occasionally you forget about minding the gap, as the Londoners say ;-)  But my quick recovery is rather impressive anyway, isn't it?

    1. Theoretically, it is not correct to put the king of the household into a labour... however, lucky for her I happen to enjoy my occupation!!! and yes, I am handsomely compensated!! ;-)

  7. Ahahaha! I love it!! <3<3 What a HELPFUL and clever boy.

    PS - one of the things I also enjoy about all our friends' kitty videos is occasionally hearing tv/radio in a different language in the background. :-) Neat.

    1. yes I sort of thought of that too, the background voice from TV definitely adds an extra Italian touch... you might have noticed Cri, who is perpetually on the phone with his extra-loud voice, often provides that himself!!
