Fortunately, new career options for young cat lovers are growing as society's interest in companion animals continues to increase.
There are now many new careers that allow people to work with cats, including cat sitting, cat grooming and cat writing, just to name a few.

Here are just some of the career options for cat lovers.

I wish the article had metioned being a veterinary technician. It is also a rewarding career. A veterinary technician not only work in a clinic but can bring an advantage to working in a shelter.

HSUS is the largest and most effective animal welfare organization and it's great to see them mentioned in this article. HSUS is all about the human/animal bond and anyone interested in a career with animals would be well advised to check out HSUS (http://humanesociety.org) and Humane Society University (LINK

Disregard the fanatical disgruntled posts. Groups like CCF and Humanewatch care only about the money to be made from animals and dislike the HSUS for their work in protecting animals from exploitation.

Check out www.humanewatch.info and find out the truth about HSUS and Humanewatch.
