Peaches Applies for a Job: 2010

I'm typing a message.

“Seeking office assistant for very busy kitty who needs help with things.  You should be able to type and to understand business stuff.  Must be professional and good with other cats.  Lots of nap breaks and some snacks.  Multi tasking would be good-like maybe watching out the window for visitors while also getting food from the kitchen counter.”

I can do that. There was more, you can read the rest here, and there might be a d-o-g, but if I can put up with these four ingrates, a dog will be no problem. It was from a kitty named Eva, and her situation sounded way better than mine. So I applied.

Those two oversized idiots hog mom's lap.

Don’t let my mom know…I’m considering a change in venue because my mom is totally inadequate when it comes to feeding me every 42 minutes, plus there’s this group of hyperactive two-year-olds here, so I am considering a change of venue. I can push papers around on a desk with the best of them and I walk on the keyboard regularly only to find myself unceremoniously placed on the floor. I suit all your other requirements, and I hope age isn’t a factor because I think I’m 19 and I probably am, but I’m a very agile and young-looking 19. How is lap time at your place?~Peaches

And you know what? Bad economy or not, I got an interview! Eva posted a message on her blog and on Facebook saying she was waiting.

You see, we older kitties are very computer savvy because those young yahoos just have no attention span.

So I’m going to tell Eva that I have an idea that could work to both of our advantages. We look very much alike, and with Eva’s agility and my absolute cuteness, I could be a decoy and we could work together to fool her mom into thinking there’s only one cat while Eva gets the treats! Then we could have a great time on the internet ordering even more!

Peaches Wakes Me Up

Here’s my application photo, so you can see how much we look alike. And by the way, this is what I have to do to get my mom out of bed in the morning…


This is a sweet memory from two years ago when Peaches met her BFF Eva. More to come about Peaches!

  1. […] follow-up to “Peaches Applies for a Job”, to her surprise she actually got an interview! But perhaps she wasn’t surprised—I think […]

    How nice to see Peaches again, and Eva, too. I love the photo of Peaches waking you up.

      I had to share this–that wonderful friendship between Peaches and Eva and how much fun it was! And Peaches was a quiet, gentle persistent pest in the morning, and so cute!

    Wow, Bernadette. Is it really two years?! We miss Peaches, but love the memories from the short time we were lucky to ‘know’ her. Her portrait is still up on the wall here and I treasure having a bit of her here to enjoy. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful fur-family with the world. EVA sends a ‘hello’ and purrs to all. She is actively lobbying to get back her computer priviledges, and who knows, perhaps some day in the near future. The best to all of you! Stay well.
