If your cat had a career what would it be? This was a question I was recently asked by Whiskas, after thinking of what our family cat Marmalade's personality is like I decided that his perfect job would be a security guard. Marmalade is seven years old now, so I guess you could class him as middle aged in cat years. He is my eldest daughter Chloe's cat and we have had him since he was a tiny little kitten, so we have seen his personality grow and know exactly what he is like as he is an indoor cat who likes to make his presence known.
Marmalade is a typical cat who spends a lot of time sleeping, normally in the strangest of places (his current favourite place is in a doll's pram and amongst the clothes on the clothes horse). He adores being stroked - but only when it suits him and he spends his days looking out the windows, playing with his toys and marching around the house like he rules the place. His favourite time of day is definitely meal time and no matter where he is in the house as soon as he hears his food bowl getting filled up he comes running. We have fed him Whiskas kitten food ever since he was a kitten and now he is older he loves the adult sachets of meat in gravy.
So what makes me think Marmalade would make a great security guard? As he is an indoor cat he is very territorial of his home, he loves looking out the window watching the world go by, but he is not too happy if another cat appears in the garden. He responds to every tiny little noise and will go and investigate and let you know straight away if anyone is at the door or there is an unfamiliar noise. Although he often runs and hides when people visit, we will have to work on that to get him security guard ready.
Marmalade loves exploring all the rooms in the house, one by one to make sure everything is as it should be.
He is certainly one unique cat, which is something Whiskas recognise as they know every cat is individual and special. This is why they have created this adorable Kitten Kollege video which is super cute!
If you have a cat what career do you think is best suited to them?
