"As an employee, Earl does an excellent job of keeping things running here. He has a inherent ability to provide me what I want, when I need it, and makes sure that I am alays on time with my appointments. He even prepares my meals and cleans up my messes. And all he asks in return is a little affection, a little purring. He is quite honestly one of the best humans I have ever had the pleasure of serving me."
I would like to think that if my cat was ever asked for a reference, it would sound something like the above. In reality, he would probably say, "Alright as humans go, but he never feeds me enough fish. He is also loud and smells funny."
