Shop cats have been around for years, and as more business’ like breweries are learning the value of having a cat around, more cats are in demand.
Thats when New York City’s Hard Hat Cats gets involved.
A non profit matching cats with business owners
This non-profit is able to provide New York City breweries with feline workers.
These feline workers not only provide midday stress relief with all the love and cuddles, but non toxic pest control. A win for both, as more cats are able to find homes.
“Breweries, with their need to store large amounts of grain—a potential snack for vermin—are a perfect match for cats looking for a place to stay. And sometimes it begins just like that–a cat wanders in and never leaves.
But often breweries seek out feline workers to join their ranks.”
Cats have been traced back thousands of years, treasured for protecting homes from vermin.
The Egyptians regarded them as sacred creatures.
So it seems there has been no match for the hunting skills of a cat!
Its nice to see them valued to this day. Not only for there skills, but the added love that comes with it.
So maybe the cat that’s been glued to your lap, or just lounging around all day, has most likely been patrolling or hunting throughout the night.
