Labor Day is coming up on September 2nd, 2019! How do you plan to spend the Labor Day weekend? Most likely, you’ll be out socializing and enjoying the last shards of summer as you devour a grilled feast and merrily quaff down some of your favorite brews.

There’s obviously nothing wrong with that sort of revelry, but please remember to take a moment to think about the true meaning of the holiday, and especially how it relates to the diligent-yet-underappreciated working cats of the world.

So in honor of Labor Day, here’s a salute to eight esteemed real life jobs for cats that need to be recognized and appreciated by all cat lovers!

1. Bodega Cat

Found in grubby block corner delis and bodegas across the map, the role is equal parts customer service ambassador and vermin patrol enforcer.

Napping among a stash of Lay’s chips is mandatory.

2. TV Presenter Cat

If you’ve even been channel hopping and tuned into TV Tokyo, you might chance across a news discussion program co-hosted by a cat. Originally, the show’s on-set feline was a ginger tabby named Maago who was fond of sticking his head in a guest’s mug and stealing their tea while on camera.

After Maago passed away in 2014, his position was taken on by Nya Nya (which means “meow meow” in Japanese), a kitty who was adopted by one of the show’s staff after being left abandoned at a garbage depot.

Nya Nya’s highlight reel is immense.

3. Circus Cat

It’s said that being part of the Acro-Cats troop is the pinnacle of showmanship.

4. Stationmaster Cat

The former stray became such an attraction that, in 2009, a Tama train was launched, while a year later, the Kishi station was redesigned to resemble a feline face in recognition of her work.

After Tama passed away from heart failure, she was succeeded by Nitama, her able deputy at the station.

5. Politician Cat

You may remember when the fierce back and forth power struggle between Larry, the U.K. Prime Minister’s cat, and Palmerston, the Foreign Office’s resident feline, provoked much hard-hitting political debate.

But both of these upstanding public servants know that a little roughhousing is simply part and parcel of the political process.

6. Cat Cafe Cat

But rest assured, life as a working hospitality cat is hard: Just imagine how long it took Jub Jub (pictured above) to successfully hoard all of the toys for himself!

7. Library Cat

The ability to nap in accordance to the Dewey Decimal System is a bonus.

8. Pub Cat

Let the formal record show that a pub with a cat lounging on the actual bar by the beer taps is perhaps the most comforting sight for us mere humans as we imbibe. Cheers!

Ziggy had a lump removed from his arm & it’s important he doesn’t mess with the stitches. He hated the cone so our vet suggested an infant onesie instead. He’s surprisingly okay with it (knows he’s the cutest) and the biopsy came back benign!
