Working cats

I once saw a documentary which featured a cat who worked at a small business greeting customers. When the shop closed, the cat stayed at home full time. It developed behavioural problems.

The animal psychic (the focus of the documentary - called She Talks to Animals, which I'm not sure ever aired) determined that the cat was depressed because it was unemployed. I believe an unsuccessful placement at a restaurant was attempted before the cat was given a job greeting library patrons. That apparently, worked splendidly, the cat trotted off to the library every morning and returned home of an evening.

I say this because I just passed a barber shop near Victoria station - a cat was sitting proudly on a bench in the waiting area overseeing the work.
