The challenge is ON!!!

As some of you know, Mona has a job as a comfort cat. Here she is giving comfort to Eli at the vet clinic:

Image Enlarger

Her job is to comfort cats and dogs who are afraid at the clinic. So far Eli is her only customer. She’s on stand-by every day except Sunday for a call for her services. When not out on a call, she gives herself comfort by being a layabout.

Mona’s other job is to send Eli out of the house to catch rats. She let Parks Canada know about Eli’s ratting skills and he’s been asked to mail the Resource Conservation Officer the rats’ ears and tails to determine how they invaded northwest BC through the rats’ DNA. Unfortunately, Eli is on probation at the moment because he has brought home some live rats to let them run around the house. Mona said he is a cat whisker away from being fired. Not only that, he has yet to pay her for the comfort sessions. 

Mona, tripawd kitty extraordinaire, offers wonderful services to pet clinics and to Parks Canada from coast to coast to coast!!

MONA!!! OMC!!!! LMAO!!!! 🙂 🙂 COMFORT CAT AND RAT WARDEN EXTRAORDINAIRE!!!

To comfort Eli, or any cat for that matter who is feeling scared is such a wonderful gift! A rare gift that only very slecial Souls have!

Love hearing about Eli and his “rat” adventures! How long will Eli be on probation? After all, Eli needs rro figure out a way to generate some income to pay for Comfort Cat Mona’s services! Wonder if there’s a market for rat ears and tails?

I think Jasper the Library Cat ay need a second to compete with Mona!:-) 🙂

Great read Miss Mona (AND KERREN)!

Love!

Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

Mona you are FAR from being a layabout. A comfort cat is a very important role indeed. To be honest, I rather fancy booking a session myself. That picture is just priceless heartheartheart

You are a SPLENDID postal cat, Purrkins. And I know you have many other jobs too, not least starring in your Mum’s oscar-winning films. There aren’t many cats who manage to combine the glamour of a film star’s life with a job as a postal carrier, but you were always one to keep your feet on the ground – except when you’re sitting in your window seat, of course, or leaping across the landing, or climbing the kitchen cupboards….

Here’s to you, Purrkins. And yes, you’re quite right. One comfort session is all it would take. I could slip him into my cabin bag and home with me to Blighty.

Kerren,
You and Clare need to get together & write a book!
The Tripawd Tails😉

Saxton would like to hire Mona for a comfort cat care visit to the vet.

Eli surely will be paid for his contribution of the Rat ears and tails the DNA research will prove the rats were brought overseas on the ships .

Eli can finally pay Mona off and go back to being a layabout kitty! 😸

Sally – Purrkins volunteers his services for all the support he & his family been given. 😻

We should all take some kitty advice and Be More Cat 😽
Layabout 🛋, bask in the sunshine🌞, watch the wildlife🕊, play🎾🐾, eat🥄, take a nap😴, Purr 🎼repeat 😍
😻💌📭heart
